Fete, Flannels, and Fancy That!

We had our school fete yesterday, and I pinned all the finished-so-far A to Z blocks on a big notice board, and they looked FAB!  But you'll have to take my word for it as I forgot to take a photo :-(

I can show you a mosaic but even that's not complete as A, R and W all arrived at school yesterday, but you can see it's getting there (shame mosaic maker cuts off part of the image, they are all complete, honest!)

I took my Baby Brother embroidery machine along, and mum and I sat in the sometime sunshine, me embroidering names on flannels and her tying off the loose ends on the Ladders Quilt that . . .  wait for it . . . someone bought! Fancy That!

(Thanks mum, terrific job done there!)

After a few hours of occasional threats, it did actually start to rain, so mum and I packed the embroidery machine away with a few unfinished orders, so I thought I'd show them here.  And for all who are (quite justly) concerned about my ability to put the right name on the right item, I *think* I have then right this time!

 I just need to trim the jump stitches, and then these flannels can go into school tomorrow

 Do look at all the lovely coloured flannels mum and I got

Rainbow heaven :-)


  1. Nice stack of flannels - and a lovely idea! The alphabet is really coming along, isn't it?

  2. Lovely day, lovely colours and the A-Z will be wonderful once you have got the last ones and can do the sashing! x

  3. Lovely colours in the flannels! Well done on the sale, it was of course your Mum's finishing off that swung the sale!
