Stitching News

Cynthia finished her most splendid festive apron. The letters are from the book "I believe" always a popular book with lovely projects to choose from. Cynthia works in the Victorian Tea Rooms in Cheadle, you'll see her apron there for sure.
I hope you noticed my beautiful Batik fabrics in the background...
I had lots of new shelves built 'specially for them!
Monday Sheila finished her Santa Advent Calendar, just in the nick of time eh! The little pockets need to be filled over the next few days, that's the easy bit.
We sold the last panel on Monday so there will be a lot of happy kiddies when it's day 1... which I believe, is on Sunday this week. 

Krafty Karen and  Early Sue arrived giggling... they came with hand stitching projects in little boxes telling us how light, small and easy to carry they were... tis the best advantage of hand piecing, I must admit working by machine is definitely a heavy lifting game.
 Both ladies are really enjoying making up hexagons by the dozen. See how they both like to used paper clips to keep things neat and tidy... I'm wondering whether Karen's are real gold!
Giggly Gillian finished her Foldy Fun Christmas Tree... I think we must ask Jenny Barlaston to do a few more workshops for this lovely project, next year though... more people want to make it... Jenny, what says you?
Lovely Lyn started and finished her quilting on this baby play mat. She used Superior Threads Rainbow thread to stitch with, shiny and beautiful at the very same time... baby is on it's way so that binding needs to be stitched on Lickety-Split!
Rose, she of delicious scone fame, finished her Dresden Plate cushion at the workshop and has continued to make 3 more. You can make 4 cushions with one Charm Pack... we have lots of Charm Packs to choose from too. There's another Dresden Plate Cushion workshop in the New Year... just a few weeks!

One table, three lovely ladies... all doing their quilting, chatting, giggling and generally enjoying their lovely day in my very own classroom...
Can you have too much fun? I don't think so!
