Random happy colours

Today was a day for celebrating a birthday, with six little ones wearing little homemade aprons made of waxed cotton (designed for making no-sew tablecloths) that looks like patchwork, but of course aren’t. We decorated — and ate! — fresh cupcakes and then just managed not to cover the walls in chocolate making chocolate spread and putting it into pots. Yummy! It was huge fun.

Here is a photo of a small guest modelling the de rigueur outfit of the day.

This clearly isn’t really quilting, despite the patchworky look, so perhaps instead it might qualify as a Really Random colourful project? Luckily, as I just bought four metres of the stuff instead of cleverly working out how much I needed, I had enough for making two adult-sized ones. Happy and cheerful, if not perhaps the height of sleek fashion.

I think the dots of this logo look just lovely with our new tablecloth / apron / food, don’t you?
Happy sewing, JJ.
