I had to tell you about my lovely afternoon. When I was on the  #GBSB I was in our local paper on two occasions.


One of the articles  was actually about Jean and her Sew Cafe and she very kindly mentioned that I needed to call in for a cuppa and cake……sewing, coffee, cake…Jean should have known it wouldn’t take me long to call in! And so….today was the day! 


I managed to time it to when there was a sewing group on, all very busy at work…and so polite they all came to sit and have a coffee with me! What lovely people…..sewists always are! Note to self……”do I ever stop talking??!!??”


I bought some fabric I had spotted on the website before I visited for a Summer Ruby! I love The Palma for Summer so I am planning a few more for this year. 

I have new black  Summer shoes, so I thought this fabric would look lovely.


Annice is in Rome this week, so I am hoping for a full sewing day tomorrow without any teenage groaning!! 

As I left Jean gave me a little goody bag for calling in…..think it should be me thanking you Jean! When I showed Tom (my son) he said ” what a thoughtful present ” and I couldn’t agree more. 


I am so delighted to find some local sewists and a great fabric shop. I have made plans to go back and make a statement coat in some fabulous fabric Jean pointed out! 


Wouldn’t that be a great Summer Mac!?! 

Lovely to meet you all!
