Robbie's ATC

When I came home today this beautiful ATC was waiting for me. It was made by Robbie and came all the way from Australia.
Thank You, Robbie.
This will be added to the ATC Gallery(Recieved ATC'S) on my website, http://www.art2inspire.co.uk/

WOOSP'S,At The Gallery Tuesday 2nd Feb

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.

In March I will be leading workshops on different techniques.
Visit http://www.thegallerydereham.co.uk/ shortly for siging up details.

Labeling The Pieces

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!
Thank you dear friends for sharing!

Nearly A Hexagon Quilt

The quilt was revealed just afterChristmas. Barbara B had taken it away and seemed to have had a sew in marathon!

Hexgon Quilt Start

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.

Barbara's ATC

Barbara gave each of us an ATC she had made from the material and lace from Fiona's wedding dress. We all got together and had a HEM party to finish off the dress . What a wonderful keepsake.
See the Barbara's and the other ATC'S I have recieved on Artist Trading Cards on my website.

Joan's Show and Tell

Joan had brought a hexagon quilt which she had been given and wondered when we had finished the other one ifwe could back this one and raffle it also for charity. Two hexagon in one year!

Barbara's Show and Tell

As you can see we all wanted to know how they were done and spot the blocks.

Barbara's Show and Tell

Due to the heavy snow (Barbara's excuse!) Barbara has been making alot socks! and alot of quilts, in pairs!

Jane and her Jelly Roll

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's Birthday Gifts

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.

Coven Quilters

We had our get together last night and Kate had brought some upholstery samples and squares. We all got to choose some. Joan made notes as Barbara showed us how to make a bag using the pieces.
