Feeling Old!

Yesterday, I spent the afternoon here:

Derby Uni 001

My daughter was having a 4 hour interview at her first choice Uni for Sept '14. She did brilliantly well at holding her nerve and presenting herself & her amazing art work, while I spent 4 hours in the rather youthful cafeteria, reading this:

book 001

I'm half way through already (only started reading it at 1.30pm yesterday!) and am really enjoying it.

A short hop and a skip across the Irish sea and we were home again by 9pm!  I have everything crossed for Shannon, that she gets a place!

And just before I go and help unearth a friend from her under fabric stash, here are some gorgeous applique cushions my Monday evening class have been making.

Applique cushions class Nov13

Aren't they brilliant! These are all 20" cushions with a variety of closures in the back.  Well done everyone!  I've a feeling some Christmas pressies have already been made!

  14. lovely cushions and good luck to your daughter, I am sure she will do well. As of yesterday I am the proud mother (hopefully proud but not smug) of 2 doctors of hard physics. Two doctors and still have no one to put on a plaster!
