Stitching News

What are the chances of meeting a Brazilian lady in Cheadle Staffordshire? good... Rose is the third one I have met so far... I have done a full circle, I learned most of what I know from American ladies while living in Brazil and now I am teaching a lovely Brazilian lady here in the middle of the UK!

Quite a few of us are putting the finishing stitches on our Uttoxeter Quilt Show entries. Jean Bean has been hand stitching her binding down on the back of her rather stunning Batik Beauty. Just a hanging sleeve and label to do... did you receive your paper work yet? Ooooh eeeerrrrr we did!
Monday Sheila decided to take a break from her Lone Star quilt. She wanted to make this little quilt to name her new workspace, it's Sheila's real, and very own, new studio... it just looks like a shed!
Christabelle made a sandwich, she needs this quilt to be ready for gifting on Wednesday, this week. She saw the Split 4-Patch pictures on Saturday's blog post and felt inspired to use some of her, recently purchased, Moda Charm Pack of Little Black Dress 2.
Once the sandwich was finished, Christabelle trimmed the crusts from another project, her beautiful Stack And Whack Kaleidoscope... I decided not to show it to you just yet as Christabelle will have it hanging in the upcoming Uttoxeter Quilt Show.
There's an SPQ meeting in Walton Community Centre in Stone for this coming Thursday, April 3rd. Staffordshire Patchworkers And Quilters got new committee members last meeting, let's all go along to see what they get up to! There'll probably be refreshments and I am sure there's a speaker. Just £4.00 on the door, no membership required!
