It took just one afternoon to complete the machine quilting and then the evening to put on a binding so I'm feeling very happy to have this finished at long last! Mike had just cut the grass and trimmed the hedge so was very pleased to be in the photo to show off the family handiwork!
My plan for the quilt is another raffle!
Our village (Chalfont St Peter) is holding a big celebration for the Feast of St Peter. This dates back to 1229 when Henry III gave the Lord of the Manor permission to hold an annual fair (and a weekly market)! This year it is being held on the Common in the centre of the village and looks like being a glorious day, with an evening concert of an Abba tribute band. Awesome!
So I am having a stall with my Viva a Vida friends and we hope to have some fun with this. Home made cakes are planned as well, so I have bought a huge 2.5kg bag of chocolate chips to make mountains of cookies.
Anyone have a good receipe for cookies? I can't remember the last time I made them so I need something really simple to follow!
