Did you have a lovely weekend? I had a lovely weekend.
I’ve been very taken with Fernanda’s “Take an Element” bag, so much so that I ordered a pattern and it arrived on Friday I finished off my Vintage Thread Caddy and have found it so useful for my hand quilting – the thread is just there and reels off nicely, plus all I need can be stored in the Caddy (including the gorgeous pin cushion from l’uccello from a few years back and these fabulous needles that are PERfect for big stitch hand quilting – luv ’em!)and on Saturday I became a student learning how to make a fabric covered box with Carol at Sewn and Quilted. I was on time and all set up before class started (the baby wipes are for getting the glue off!)only to find that the kit I’d chosen was not suitable for the class (my mistake) and with 2 minutes to spare had to choose a new kit and new fabric – pressure!! (I know the principles now so can go ahead and make the other kit at some stage)
There were 8 of us in the class and we all did soooo well with everyone finishing and everybody so pleased with our day’s work. It’s such a pretty array of boxes, isn’t it and so professionally finished – even if I do so say myself! Such a fun class, thank you Carol.I’m very happy with how mine turned outand I’ve been able to open packets and round up strays and it now houses embroidery/quilting threads, neatly stored all in one place, very easy to find and with enough room for needles too!Ah, very satisfying.
So, what did you get up to?
