I really don’t know how I manage to get so far behind these days!!! Well I do, but I am not telling you why…hahaha
I am catching up slowly but very very surely. These are pictures taken at my group on 20 March. It snowed that day on top of the snow we already had, I left it too late to cancel, so Suzanne and I bravely ventured out in the cold cold snow to await the arrival of anyone daft as us to come to the meeting. I told Suzanne not to set out many tables and no chairs until we saw if anyone came….so while we waited, she went out into the snow and played……She did a huge whirligig pattern with her feet….
When she got to the middle she side-stepped out so as not to spoil the design… So here we are, an empty hall… Suzanne got her sewing out regardless, can you see the face???? Where is everybody??? I went off to get out some cups to have a cuppa… But just look at this….Way to go Ladies, what a great bunch they are. These are the
fools err ladies who braved the cold and snow to come to the meeting…To show my appreciation of them turning up I gave them a good discount on their entry fee, told them it was a one-off though!!! They deserved it… These are the two ‘extra’ blocks they will be making today along with the Project we have lined up for the next few months, I like to keep them busy you know… Here are two of my new ladies who joined today – I had five in total – none of the newbies had done patchwork before and that is just how I like it, no-one else has been showing them different to the way I work, you would not believe how some so-called ‘name’ teachers show folk how to do patchwork, beggars belief really…Anyway Tilly is holding up her very first square she made today, she was so excited, she grinned from ear to ear, it was a definite Kodak moment, well done Tilly, I told her she has to do seven more just like that, and do you know what, she got three others done in the day… and here they are… these are Jenny’s first blocks, she was sat next to Tilly in the photo above… well done to you too Jenny. SHOWTIME at the QUILT SET
Debbie’s cushion a paper foundation pieced pattern… Debbie’s Baltimore style cushion – we did these last year… Debbie’s teapot hanging… and coasters…. Debbie’s folder from the previous months class, the outside view… and the inside…. a Playmat by Debbie for her Sister to donate to a charity…Debbie’s finished project from last year, well done Debs…. Irene’s Baltimore style cushion – from previous class last year… Dee’s Folder from last class and I think the one next to it belonged to Alison…. Janet’s folder, not me, a new lady, they really liked these folders…. Alison’s tote, one of my new ladies who as you can see is not new to patchwork, she was an absolute star that day, she helped me with the new ladies at her table, she is also the one I have to thank for introduing all the new ladies, Great job Alison… because just look at this fabulous ruler and mat bag she made… Margaret with some HST cushions… Di brought along the quilt I made her, you will have seen this on a previous page on here… Di also brought this beautiful quilt along, made for her by her Aussie friends, when they heard about Jeff, they all made a heart and signed the square and someone made it into this quilt, what a wonderful idea…
I took along some stuff I had finished since the previous meeting just to prove I do actually get something done in between the meetings….
Folder front… folder inside… folder front, this was made from one of my FMQ samples from SewCalGal’s site…. and the inside…. another folder front… and it’s inside…. aha, no not a folder this time, this is a clutch bag, made from strips of voiles… the inside view…. small bag made from my Sashiko sample from PP challenge… another small bag made from my Threadplay sample from SewCalGal’s site…. back of the bag…. another bag, but bigger, also made from FMQ sample from SewCalGal’s site…. and another, same as before FMQ sample turned into something useful…. these are Fabric Postcards made from those little triangles that get cut off and thrown away – I hate waste, so made these, actually I made quite a few but let the new ladies at my group choose one each, just because….
I hope you enjoyed the show folks. The Ladies did me proud considering the dreadful weather, I really appreciated them turning up, makes it all worthwhile. 🙂 Next meeting is not til May, seems a long long way away at the moment.
