Mothering Sunday Early

I just thought I'd share these two photos with you.  The first was at Doughty's fabric roadshow in Lincoln this morning:
We arrived soon after opening and there was already a queue the length of the hall so we decided to go for the coffee and cake option first.  Unfortunately while we were feasting even more ladies (mainly) arrived and the queue got longer and the hall more crowded.  Those in the queue had their arms full of bolts of fabric and some had got chairs - for the fabric!  As the average price per metre was £6 it was no wonder.  DD and I both got what we wanted, purples for her (I'll be doing something creative for her new bedroom with those) and turquoise, cream and a touch of brown for me to use with Lynne Edwards on Friday (I'll share afterwards).  I didn't find anything for our panel Michelle but will have several more opportunities at the weekend.  I did manage an impulse buy that then needed two extra fabrics to go with it!  I'll be using those for a Global Piecers mug rug swap so I can't share those either! 
So, what's the other photo?  Well, after DD had bought me lunch it was back to her place for some gentle (ha ha) curtain hanging (as it was rather damp outside and the gardening was postponed).  I was really impressed to see how she is enjoying homemaking and sneakily took her photograph (she'll probably kill me when she sees it).
And I can report that she was pleased with her shopping list holder and immediately hung it on her kitchen wall, bless her.  A successful but tiring day, so Chinese takeaway for dinner!  Happy Mothering Sunday to you all for tomorrow.
