Taking a sewing class…

This week I have had a lovely break from work with a great friend in a gorgeous part of the world, Ipswich, Suffolk.

Through my friend Tracy, I have met the lovely Gillian, who is a skilled quilter and patchwork artist extraordinaire!

Now, I am the first person to admit that I am not a ‘neat’ person, and while I love patchwork and needlework I have my own ways, often cutting ‘by eye’ and rarely measuring… well that all changed on Wednesday when Tracy and I attended a sewing class held by Gillian!
Check out the website, you may like to try one too!

Tracy decided to make some bunting and I was given a few items to look through and decide what I wanted to do, I chose a pin cushion  with thread catcher attached and then afterwards had time left to do a little bunting myself – little owls!

I’m not showing how we did it – you need Gillian’s expertise for that!

But here are my efforts. I have to say that it was a really enjoyable day, we were all in deep concentration but had time for a cuppa or two and a few (quite a few!) giggles along the way.

and hung up…

and here’s my lovely pin cushion and thread catcher…. and yes, I know, the notes are upside down.. I stupidly concentrated so hard on making my square bottom to my thread catcher than I forgot to check which was the bottom!
Well, that’s a good reason to make another!

and here it is ready to use… just need to get my own sewing machine working again now!

and if you do decide to attend a class…..tell Gillian you heard about them from me!

Back soon
love Rosie
