Jubilee celebrations!

3 Jun

The Jubilee weekend is here! I hope you all have lots of lovely things planned over the 4 day weekend.

To help with the local celebrations I have been helping my friend Georgina Giles with a mammoth task; to help make 357 meters of celebration bunting to decorate Palmerston Road in Southsea. School children across Portsmouth have been  decorating flags with some wonderful designs that would adorn the lenght of Palmerston Road shopping centre. The flags were only delivered on Tuesday so it was a busy couple of days of sewing! Particularly for George as she did the gigantic strip of 200 meters that runs along the entire lenght of the street!

I enjoyed looking at all the flags I had to sew, children have such great imaginations. There were lots of drawings of the Queen and diamonds and lots of shiny crowns. Some however appeared to have nothing to do with the queen at all, in fact one had appeared to have drawn Chewbacca from Star Wars!

It was great to help out a friend and to be involved in a local project. Seeing it all hanging proudly in the sunshine gives you a great sense of pride, even if I only had a small part to play.

One person who should be VERY proud though is Miss Georgina Giles herself who helped organised the whole thing with Portsmouth City Council and made it come together beautifully! Well done George!x
