Anyway I went to a workshop on Friday with my little quilting group. The teacher was Deanne Hartwell-Jones and the workshop was Petal folded patchwork. It was a really nice relaxing day - no machine sewing at all. This is what I made...
Pretty ! This measures about 5 inches. Nice maybe as decoration for a bag or a box lid or perhaps a wall-hanging. It was good fun and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. This workshop has been booked for weeks and I nearly never got there. DS Patrick came down with flu and was off school feeling really poorly. All was not lost though as Jason changed his shift for me so he stayed home with Patrick and worked today instead. I phoned up at lunchtime to see how he was and he was not bad. Patrick told me I had a parcel delivered. It was a couple of books I had ordered from Amazon. Quilting books of course - lol !! What other kind are there ?
Because I was on a deadline with Chris's quilt and it was all too much of a rush I have been in the mood for pottering in my sewing room. Bit of this and a bit of that.... A few ladies asked for a tutorial for the sewing caddy I made for my PIF gifts and I made a start on that....
I also got going on the 4 seasons Spring swap. Here's what I've done so far.
I have in mind a sort of medallion type quilt and am thinking about what to do next.
And lastly I have sorted out one of my huge scrap boxes and pulled out some of the strips. I was debating doing a string quilt but I think I have another plan. Watch this space.
Just had to include a photo of my youngest baby.
This is the top of my kitchen door. Don't know how he got up there but he couldn't get down. I had to lift him off - after I grabbed my camera of course. Silly puss !!
