Stitching News

Our Pam has been making baby quilts for ages. The original idea was to make 18 quilts to give to the premature baby unit where her granddaughter had been looked after so well when she was born... to say thank you 18 years later. But Covid happened... so Pam couldn't go to deliver them and she just kept going....

These 4 baby sized quilts bring Pam's total up to well over 30, she's lost count really but it's a huge pile. Soon they will be taken to the hospital, QMC Nottingham. Toot toot toot toot Pam, 4 more fabulous and finished prem baby unit quilts, well done you!

Christine has been enjoying some of the Online workshops that so many people took part in during lockdown. This fellow will be made into a wall hanging, I think Chris said he would be framed soon... he is very smart don't you think? Applique, couching and using fancy stitches to embellish.
This is also Christine's from a longer term online class, It's all ruler work, hours and hours and hours of stitching with rulers to guide, which she loves doing. The project has had all the areas quilted separately, then they were joined together with the sashing

As always with apartment quilting you can have the back made up in different colours so it's like making two quilts at the very same time, double the fun, if that's your thing! Toot toot toot Chris, a fabulous finish.

Nothing much to do with sewing (yet very important in class) these are the most popular biscuits in my shop!

 Tea and coffee is made more scrumptious with a biscuit on the side! Ginger Nuts come in second place. This week we had Malted Milk, they had everyone talking because they brought on many a memory of childhood, good old Malted Milk Moo biscuits!
It's a Sunday Sewday at Checkley this weekend, of course there will be biscuits, including Malted Milk Moos ha ha ha
