paper piecing progress

Very little to report except to say that English Paper Piecing makes for a beautifully portable project.  On the train, with my tea, it is so good, so good you see...

And so on.  Anyway, all that needs doing is a bit of whip stitch along edges and before long, the front of the soon-to-be cushion cover is all sewn together!  I'm going to make the back out of one piece of material and then stuff it when I find some appropriate filling.  Apparently cooked pasta isn't great because although it has good squish factor, it doesn't last very well.

P.S. Much better week continues with lovely Monday date night with boyfriend - dinner, drinks and French film noire were the order of the evening at the British Film Institute at the south bank.  I love the BFI.  They have wonderful sofas round the back in the bar that you can really curl up into.  It was strange for us to realise that while we've been there once before for dinner, and several times for drinks, we'd never seen a film there.  Anyway, Classe Tous Risques turned out to be excellent, the seats are red and plush and lovely, there are virtually no adverts, and you were allowed to take your wine in with you (as long as you had it in a plastic cup).  FIN.

P.P.S. That's how the film ended.  Completely out of the blue, loud orchestral chord and the word FIN just appeared on the screen.  Majority of audience surprised.  

P.P.P.S. I love London (have you noticed?) and as part of my goal to organise my blog a bit more, I'm thinking of including a more regular London feature.  Good idea/bad idea?  Is London interesting to non-Londoners?


  1. Good idea, because London is interesting to Londoners as well! The Boy Child and I have great adventures using London Transport! You might be able to point me in the direction of some new places to take him.
    Cushion cover is looking lovely.

  2. I love London.....great idea. Your cushion is going to look lovely.

  3. Would love to hear your London stories. Am visiting with a friend in half term and recommendations of cool places to visit would be brill!! Xx
