Summer Give Away!

Not yet our summer holidays, but  time to celebrate long hours of day light and the possibility of ice cream eating with bare feet feeling grass rather than mud!

I made an extra campervan print 'tea wallet' - and I've added some other summer goodies: a key tag to make, some stickers, a little of two types of ice cream fabric.

Want to win?  Leave me a comment, perhaps sharing your ideal one word for summer!  Name out of a hat in a week's time.....
 The quilts that I'd finished previously have now been labelled (so properly finished now!). In addition to my usual printed labels, DD1 made her own 'thank you' additions.  I feel that we may need to work on 'setting out your space', but the sentiment is heartfelt!
As promised, this is the cushion cover part of the quillow.  I can't think of a better place to use a 'friendship star' as Georgie's TA has been a true friend to her as well as a fabulous teacher.  We have been very lucky to have the wonderful Mrs Power as well as the lovely Miss Stout.  If we ever get even half as lucky again, we will have a lot to thank the education system for!

Aside from labelling, I've made reasonable progress on my Bathers tribute quilt.  The challenge from my quilting group was to make an A3 quilt, based on or inspired by an art postcard.  Mine is based on the block that I designed based on 'The Bathers' by Georges Sueurat.  I'm having fun making it.

Hope you are enjoying sewing too! Don't forget to leave a comment if you want some summer goodies for your stash!


  1. My hubby and I just bought a travel trailer, so we are looking forward to doing some summer traveling. So my one word would be "FUN!"

  2. What lucky teachers - the cushion is gorgeous! I miss the days when I made teacher gifts. My teenagers no longer want to give pressies at the end of the school year. It's so precious when they have a teacher or TA that they really bond with.
    If I had to sum up summer in one word it would be 'friends' as this seems to be the time of year when we get to see special people, friends and family, for a lovely catch-up, and it always seems like we only saw each other yesterday :)

  3. My word would be SUNSHINE !!

  4. I I think my word of choice would be SLEEP, more specifically no alarm clock! (ten more!). The pressies for the teacher & TA look fab, I'm sure they'll love them, and what a lovely giveaway! Hope to see you on Monday x

  5. My word would be sunshine!!!! Or Love!!!!! Thanks for the fun!!!!


Thanks for leaving a comment! I always appreciate it and will try to respond.
