A lot of my time goes into making stuff - and this bobbin pin cushion I made last week made everyone laugh:
Everyone liked it so much that we thought it would be a fun workshop to hold later this year. I got in touch with Bobbin Patch, which is where I bought the kit, and they've said they would be happy for us to do it so keep an eye out for our new schedule!
At the Lynne Johnson day last week Jan brought her finished Medallion Quilt to show us
Very inspiring! Lynne said that if I didn't spend my time making giant pin cushions and robins I would have finished mine by now! And she also showed us the quilt she made her daughter from T shirts of shows she's either appeared in or loved watching
At Pitch and Stitch this morning Anthea was working on the Twilight Silhouettes hanging she started at a Gail Lawther Workshop
and Sally has finished the stunning quilt she's made for her son - a beautiful example of foundation piecing.
We are enjoying having Corentin here for work experience and have found he's an excellent excuse for a day out! We had a lovely daytrip to London last week. We saw lots of sights, walked along the Thames - although because the tide was in there were a few problems
watched the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace
and enjoyed a delicious Italian lunch in Covent Garden - where I was very impressed with their flower displays
and Corentin was very excited to see that the crates were from near where he lives in France!
Oh, and by the way, if for no other reason you should come to the workshop for the chat - you would not believe what they get up to in Witney these days!!
