Stitching News

 We've been making sandwiches on Fridays for a change. Sandwich Saturdays are tricky now that we have Saturday Sewdays especially set up for working girls, and Our Norma. Sewing with a few Like minded people is very good for your inner self, don't you think?

Shirley's Autumn Colour sandwich. It looks 3D because of the clever pattern. Can you believe she still has fabrics left from the Autumnal 6" strip pack I made up? There might be a cushion to co-ordinate with this lap quilt, one day.

Jan's Tilda sandwich. While she was piecing the blocks she had felt slight disappointment because the stars didn't show up very well with her fabric choice. Once they had the wadding behind them Jan was delighted with how well they pop.

 Saturday, Norma had all the tables to her very own self, and boy did she make good use of them, as we all would have done! I helped her cut up the Fat Quarters ready for her next project, to be started at Checkley Sunday Sewday, while she prepped and stitched bindings on the 2 quilts she had collected from Amanda in Stone
