Craft Fayre season is about to begin again in the next few days. I will be at Just Tracy's craft fayre on the 12th April 2014 10 am - 3 pm.
I have been making small items that are quickest to make as my shoulder injury is still on going. I am only spending ten minutes at a time cutting, pinning or sewing to avoid causing my shoulder further injury or pain. I am still sewing, laughing and breathing!
I hope to see you all at Just Tracy's craft fayre.
Another student workshop. This time making mobile phone covers. These students like cutting their fabric on the floor. I know, I know, please do not shout at me. It is a student thing. I have a lovey large cutting mat and table in my studio.
I had a wonderful time with Goosey Quilters this evening. They always give Mr D and myself a warm welcome. The theme for this year is 'make do and mend'.
I cut lots of shapes on my 'Accuquilt Go' yesterday. It takes only a few minutes to cut shapes for the whole group.
As part of the theme is to use up our scraps and Goosey Quilt show is in September, I taught them how to make two types of pin cushions. These are great items for a sales table. A simple round pin cushion that members could make in ten minutes or if they are new to sewing. The second pin cushion takes a little longer and is larger than the round cushion. Most members started the large pin cushion first. They wanted to make and finish the cushion whilst I was at the meeting.
I also took my 'Accuquilt Go and Accuquilt Baby' so members could try cutting fabrics on the machines.
Goosey Quilt Show in Tavistock on Thursday 11th - Saturday 13th September 2014.
SusanClaire's, aka 'The Gourmet Quilter', mystery quilt for 2014 has started this month. It is called That Garden Quilt. There is a new part every month for six months. If you sign up for Susanclaire's newsletter, you get a reminder that the next part of the quilt is posted with a video link. So I have no excuse to missed a part. Now all that is left for me to do is print out the first part and audition my fabrics. I will tried and keep up making the current month's blocks and post an update with a photo. See you next month for part two.
