Ladies embellishing at The Gallery Dereham. We made up a new word " WOOSPS", for the wool tops that were used to lay on top and embellish in. This was often followed by a giggle and then laughter. I had another lovely day and my postcards went on sale! they will be for sale on my website shortly. http://www.art2nspire.co.uk/
The quilt is nearly finished but theres the edges to do! not easy because you have to turn a hexagon edge into a straight edge. So half lozenges and quarter lozenges needed. We labelled them to colour co-ordinate them and then sew them in. Jane was wonderful she threaded her needle and started immediately! We had such a lovely evening and Barbara had made apple cake and flapjack's, yum!
It started with a suitcase full of hexagons which needed to be sewn together to raffle for charity. We took up the challenge in June. Each of us took away some hxagons and over sewed them into lozenge shapes. We had a day in my studio to layout the lozenges on my big table and started to sew. We each took a line to sew. Then revealed at our next meet.
We are a bunch of bag ladies when we meet. We have so much show and tell aswell as swops. They know I recycle everything so I am really lucky. Thank you! Jane showed us what she had done with her Jelly Roll, what lovely colours.
Jane had her Birthday at the end of January and it was our get together to give our gifts. Note: shes wearing the Brooch I gave her, she liked it! The book was from Kate, Kaffe Fasset, lovely and Jane also had some wonderful smellies, the relaxing type.
