… BOTH of the quilt groups I belong to started up again... NOTHING FOR 6 weeks then two meetings in one week ! .. oh my ! lol x
Congleton was first .. it was catch-up, sales tables, general chatter and a "make" pattern. The pattern is for Prem baby hearts. The idea is to make 2 non stuffed hears , one for mum to wear next to her skin and then one for baby to wear so that it gets to absorb mums smell .. which is SO important. These are mine …
I know the curves are more angles .. but I don't think the babies will care x lol x They will go back next time x I took in the tissue holders .. they were snapped up by the sales table/tombola ladies .. and if I want to make more... ! SO..
..yes I made some more .. they will go next time too x
Sandbach also started back. We had a sort of speed dating evening .. BUT with finishing techniques!! lol x There was a long table and we had 10-15 mins. to talk about our topic .. there was squaring up .. types of wadding (from silk mix to one made from re-cycled plastic bottles !).. layering techniques from tacking to a gun with plastic tags!.... marking techniques.. hand quilting.. machine quilting.. buttons and tying and ….making and attaching binding …. PHEW! The ladies asked lots of questions and seemed to really enjoy it all x
It was also announced that we will be working for a charity next year …. SO I kept going and made more tissue holders..
I AM SO DONE!! lol x They are waiting for me to get some more little packs of tissues x
I started back on the granddaughters cardigan..
BECAUSE I finished the shawl I wanted to make with the beautiful club colour way for this time ..
I LOVE IT x
WARNING... I am going to mention CHRISTMAS!!! lol x You may remember that each year I have made a wall hanging for my son and daughter-in-law for this holiday .. this year is 5 gold rings .. they take a while to do .. SO I thought I had better get started..
lol x mine are more like 5 gold ovals!! But from across the room (I hope) no one will notice x
I feel it has been a productive week .. hope yours has been the same x
