New Project

Ok my Quilty Friends.  I promised we would start a Sampler Quilt when  Thursday class starts back in September.
We'll be using blocks from The Essential Sampler Quilt book by Lynne Edwards

Currently the book is £14.99 on Amazon.

Of course there are many other places you can buy this book from.

Jean will be bringing along her Sampler Quilt on Thursday 3rd September to whet your appetites.

Mid Summer Stitching

Ok ladies, as there is no 'Actual' Thursday class over the summer holidays.
On Wednesday the 12th August I will be holding a Sit and Stitch Day.
It's from 10-4 and we will be having a Hope Lunch (asking everyone to bring a plate of food and 'Hope' there is enough).

The idea is that you bring along some sewing to get on with and we sit and stitch and chat.

I will be bringing along a couple of small projects I have been working on which you can make on the day if you want.

Either this unusual Cathederal Window Pin Cushion

For this you will need 
Eight Two and a half inch squares of plain(ish) fabric
And Eight Two and a half inch squares each a different fabric (see below)
One four and a half inch piece for the back
A Four and a half inch piece of wadding and a small amount of stuffing.
And a couple of buttons.
This beautiful little Secret Garden Box
To make this you will need
Six five and a half inch Squares
Six generous three inch squares
Six three inch squares of Wadding
For my virtual ladies I'll be posting some how too' s after the event.

Meanwhile, I've been enjoying some uplifting music the last few days - It's All About the Bass
