Stitching News

This next week should start to see things settling and getting back to some kind of normal in my very own world. I hit the ground running on the 9th, my first day back in my shop after sewing prevention season. I had to do a lot of mathemisms! People were so very pleased to be getting back to creating. 

Princess Jackie found a bit of stitchy time during the break. She was racing the arrival of an important little bundle, a race she has now won. A first for this year, Fabulous and finished, very bright and cute, a baby gifting quilt. Toot toot toot Jackie.

Jackie made a fabulous pieced backing using up all the extra bits left from making the top.

Christabelle spied a few vacant tables during class, so was able to plan the layout of the last third of her 3D project. Just one diamond in the wrong position would have been a small disaster. Not really, nothing a seam ripper couldn't solve. Not that it was needed, Chris is a smart cookie and uses labels!

Mrs. Lou Lou wanted to lay out her blocks. She only needs three more trees but wasn't sure whether to make light, medium or dark ones. Laid out it was obvious really. Any would have been fine, ha!

Farmer Lynda is working with the same Elizabeth Hartman pattern. Inspired by Merlot and Mrs' Lou Lou's work she got started lick-etty-split. Now she's gone off on a tangent and decided she wants Autumnal trees too. She is Pleasing her very own self, we love that! 

Rose's enormous Log Cabin Quilt. A Wedding Gift. Wow! 
Natural colours, just as requested. Diagonal lines quilted with her walking foot and free motion quilting of ferns in the borders.
Looking from the back you can see the quilting as it really stands out.
This is a King size whopper of a quilt. It's Fabulous and finished with time to spare, well almost. there will be a few evenings of hand stitching the binding now. But we won't see this beauty again, so toot toot toot Rose. Hope you enjoyed your workout?

This weekend we have our first Sunday Funday Sewday of the year. That's Sunday 28th January.
We still have space if you would like to join us. 
9:30am - 3:30pm, it's a one day stitching retreat. £20 per person paid in advance. Please book before Wednesday 24th. It's £25 to pay on the day.
Refreshments and a light lunch are included.

I almost forgot this. Again I'm tackling "Work /Life balance"
My shop will not be open, often known as 'CLOSED', on Friday 2nd February. 
On Saturday 3rd February my shop will be closed but able to take pre-booked shopping appointments in the afternoon. I hope that makes sense?
