OK, so third date is going fine so far (see previous post if you are totally confused by this statement!) and all my half square triangles are stitched and trimmed. I struggled to think of an original "in progress" photo (following bee rules and not giving away what's been stitched) so instead opted for the cute factor and snapped a couple of aforementioned half square triangles on sleeping Felix! She is so darned cute I couldn't resist (yes, yes, I know all mums say that!)
Other than that, no sewing progress. Our weekends are taken up with the lovely George and Kaitlyn who are James' children so we spent this morning at a car boot sale which is their idea of heaven (do you know how much stuff you can buy for £1 if you really try??!!). They came away loaded with a sword/gun, a blue pony, a spider and web, sticky things that you throw at windows etc etc whilst I found the following vintage bargains:
A set of 4 drinking glasses
And this gorgeous set of egg cosies (I'm not sure how useful these are, but how cool is the fabric?)
Before I got pregnant I used to sell at antiques and collectables fairs (mostly vintage handbags and 50s/60s stuff) so these items are both destined for the basement until I find time to do one again!
Poor old James bravely pushed Felix around and kept her occupied whilst the three of us ran excitedly from stall to stall (or is that boot to boot?), so I've just made him kedgeree with smoked haddock from Hastings old town to make it up to him :)
