I have recently spent the weekend at my big sister's house, with her and my little sister. We had a proper girls weekend, with crafting and movies.
Big sister Vicki had several things she wanted to work on, as did I. Little sister Rachael is much more focused, and was just working on her cross-stitch. This could also be due to the fact she needs to finish it pretty soon, but we'll put it down to her not getting too distracted by lots of different crafts. (Annoyingly, I forgot to get a picture of what she was doing!)
Vicki spent most of the weekend putting up her free motion quilting frame, and having arguments with the thread on her sewing machine. The sewing machine eventually behaved, and a quilt was loaded onto the frame - although I left before quilting started. Vicki also cut out some material for a couple of other quilts, and worked on her crochet project. I just love her wool!
Our weekend also featured yummy food: homemade pizza that I forgot to picture, chocolate and orange risotto (which was nice, but very rich as dark chocolate had been used), and cheese & herb scones. Such treats!
Vicki also treated me to some new gym leggings from our favourite independent legging brand, Lucy Locket Loves, as I have just finished the C25K. They are completely suitable for someone who is crafting mad! We took them out for a short run on Sunday morning - it was quite nice to be able to run together (and I didn't slow Vicki down too much, which was a bonus).
It was definitley a great way to spend a weekend. Highly recommended.
