jenny Bowker Workshop, day 2

Another fabulous day with Jenny Bowker in Caldas Da Rainha. Another group of ladies, from PIP's, IWP and Paula's, this time with some customers of Mario's Bernina shop, Casa Felizardo.
I can't remember the names of all the ladies..... I've never been good at remembering names.... but they were all lovely

and that is all that is important!
I just received an email , this is Licinia, Isabel and Luisa.

This is Arabela from the IWP group.

Like Ann yesterday, Anabela broke something on her machine and got to use Jenny's Bernina Aurora! I think she bonded very well with it too.

This is Paula, who was one of the organisers of the workshop.

Jenny shows us more intricate quilting and the faces get more serious as they move in for a closer look! I promise you that there was lots of fun and laughter, though you would be forgiven for not believing me from this photograph.

Try this one of Garen and Arabela..... definitely happy, happy, happy! In the background you can see the room full of people, chatting and laughing with machines buzzing along........ heaven!

More happy faces......

This is a quilt that Jenny brought along to show us how she makes lovely small quilts to practice free motion quilting. Once we finish practicing with our 'Fat Quarter Sandwiches', she suggests we should move directly on to quilts... I think it is known as .. "jumping in at the deep end!" and why not!
