Lazy but productive!

We had a nice lazy Saturday morning.

I made a chocolate cake with my helper.

Lucinda was as usual feeling crafty and had been asking to do an applique canvas.

She drew up a design and gathered her fabrics. I started the first stitch and off she went.

All finished...

I was fairly productive too. A cushion for Lucinda to give to her friend for her Birthday today.

The Birthday girl's favourite colour is blue!

And this afternoon I started to put together this which is a long overdue present for a union jack loving nephew!!

Tonight I'm quilting it and hopefully will have it all put together in the next couple of days. Love ticking things off the list!!

Wow! More busy than lazy I would suggest. The apple cavas is delightful.

Lucinda's blanket stitch is neater than mine. But I am a champion bowl-licker!

The apple is amazing! Can't wait to see the Union Jack in all its glory!

Doesn't look very lazy to me! Lucinda has done a beautiful job on her little apple -- how exciting that she wants to sew! I LOVE the fabrics in your Union Jack -- can't wait to see it finished. And the little blue pillow AND your bowl licker are just as cute as can be!

Nice .. they do really have talent and making use of your designs can really do a unique and great master piece.
