Slippers and Bianca

It is mothers day here today so hope all you mums have a great day.
I made these slippers from the recent Homespun Magazine and as I am a slippers fan I love them. They are quite easy to make and are very comfortable.

On Tuesdays I go to a sit and stitch group there is lots of talking and a bit of sewing.
The majority of us are my age(that's very young LOL).
One week Bianca turned up having seen a quilt in a book and wanting to make it.
She is young with a small child.
She is thin and trendy and I think she is very brave to endure us each week.
We have helped her along the way but to her credit as a novice quilter this is what she made.
