Happy Friday Number 6

Hooray!  Here at last for Happy Friday…That’s the problem with living in the wilds of Norfolk, the internet connection is rubbish at the best of times, and when it goes wrong, it really goes wrong! Never mind, I’m here now, and if I type very, very fast I might just get back in in time for the Great British Sewing Bee which I love, do you?

So what happened this week which deserves a Happy Friday mention? Well, firstly I fell in love with, and just had to buy these gorgeous pieces of vintage eiderdown fabrics from Sarah Moore.  As soon as I saw them I was transported back to childhood and the eiderdown m granny used to tuck me under when I went to stay.  If only I still had it… I’m hoping to make a little patchwork cushion for my bedroom to keep those memories alive.

Higgins had a play date with his little friend Coco.  It’s sooo difficult to get a clear photo when he meets his pals, there’s so much charging around, but here they are, I think they were hunting otters! 2015-02-06 14.41.31I started making the cowl designed for the Remembering Vanessa Knitalong which I mentioned in this post and explains the gorgeous yarn I showed you for Happy Friday number 4

    Aww little Higgins looks like he had a fantastic time on his play date 🙂 And those vintage fabrics will make a beautiful cushion, i’m glad you’ve found something to connect you to good times gone by xx

    I love those fabrics! Somewhere I have a vintage eiderdown I saved when clearing an Aunt’s house, the patterns are lovely aren’t they?!

    Higgins has play chums! He is such a cool dude 😉

    I’m now off to look up the knitalong and the cowl as I missed this – I put my head down to do some work and whooosh all sorts of stuff has passed me by.

    Wishing you and Higgins a very happy Friday

    I love the idea of Higgins having a play date! That is one super cute doggie coat too. Your cowl is looking so lovely – I don’t think my knitting skills are quite up to it yet though. I’ve only got into The Great British Sewing Bee this series and am loving it. That and Broadchurch are keeping me very happy at the moment. Have a good weekend. x

    Happy Valentine’s to you. I’ve just found your lovely blog and added it to my reading list. I had a blog, which I no longer post on, but you’ve just inspired me to perhaps create a new one and start again

    Your mention of a vintage eiderdown reminded me of one I remember from my grandma’s house – if only we had a crystal ball to know what would come back into fashion in the future! Love your fabrics and the idea of recreating a memory though xxx

    Oh I love seeing the photos of Higgins and his friends, they are soo cute. That fabric is gorgeous maybe the sewing bee will inspire you to create something a bit different. I thought the children’s costumes this week were wonderful.

    Hi Penny – love the photo of Higgins – looks like he and Coco are having lots of fun, I can just imagine their little waggy tails going ten to the dozen! Great vintage fabric and a lovely way of connecting back to the past x

    I’m not too far from you in the wilds of Suffolk and the network connection is a bit on the slow side 🙂
    Great fabric, a cushion cover is a great way to remember the lovely memories. I love the pics of Higgins, it looks like he’s having great fun.
