Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a super weekend. Mine was rather busy and a bit up and down. I had great plans of bashing thru the tasks on my To-Do List but I was struck down with a bit of a bug. So Sunday was spent making these bags, with much appreciated help from my Sarah, in readiness for the first of a popular Christmas Surprise class at Stitchin’ Heaven.
If you haven’t registered your interest in this class yet and are worried you have missed the boat, we have added another date which will be Saturday November 22nd. This is going to be a fun festive class. Mulled wine and mince pies will be served and all supplies needed will be provided. All you need is your sewing machine and your basic sewing kit. Call 01665 570 833 to book this class. I look forward to seeing you on the day. We’re going to have fun while being creative.
I had a pretty interesting Beginner’s Sampler Quilt class on Saturday. Some of my ladies have finished all of their beginner’s sampler blocks and are at the stage of joining them together.
It was wonderful seeing the first of these many quilt centres progressing. This one belongs to Sue who is hiding behind her quilt top. I’m quite sure that Sue will have all her borders added by next month’s meeting.
Several weeks ago I posted about a collaboration project I was doing with my lovely friend Carolyn. Well it’s time to reveal what this project is all about. Here is the project that we have produced using Carolyn’s doodles which she turned into stitcheries. This project is called the Angel Keeper Stitchery Quilt.
Once Carolyn handed over the stitcheries it was my turn to do something to turn the stitcheries into a quilt. So I decided to use a Jelly Roll to frame the stitcheries and bring the project to a wall hanging size quilt. Together with Carolyn’s stitchery designs and the instructions that I composed we now have a pattern. And we have decided that some of the proceeds from the sale of this pattern will be donated to Quilts for Comfort. So now you know. I’m really amazed what two people can do together without being in the same room! So if you’re interested in purchasing this pattern for the Angel Keeper Stitchery Quilt please contact me.
It’s been a pretty good day in my little world. I wasn’t very productive because I had a couple of appointments and various other things that needed to be done. Tomorrow it’s back to longarm quilting for me.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be doing some preliminary appliqué work. I hope you have super cosy evening doing something you really enjoy. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching. ♥ ♥
