When we sew at home , we sew in isolation, joining
a group of like minded sewers (sewists) whichever
collective noun you choose, Brings together a wealth
of information , knowledge , and possible new skills.
How many times do we say "I never thought of that"?
This is what this weeks sewing day brought.
WE DISCUSSED A SUMMER MEAL.
I HAVE BOOKED THE PAN ASIAN IN
HANLEY FOR JULY 28TH. 12-30PM.
THIS A FREEBIE FROM THE KITTY.
WE HAVE ALSO PROVIDED THE HALL
WITH THE WEBSITE.
|Marion has made this baby blanket a request from|
her daughter, She appliqued Baa Baa the Elephant
then backed the top with a fine fleece. this is not a quilt
|This quilt again by Marion was a fabric panel from|
the lady at SPQ. A really soft and delicate quilt.
|Kate has finished her sewing machine bag, a gift any little girl|
would love to receive.
|Jenny brought in another Charlie bag, to be gifted with|
cosmetics to a friend. Then she drafted a pattern for a
blouse from the Lutterloh system, perhaps to be made at home.
|Irene's cushion is looking very swish, she has Trapuntoed|
the center star. This was another of the panels from the lady
|Val cut out a blouse pattern in Broidery Anglais (sorry no pics)|
then she started to make a dolls dress, This little doll will have quite
an extensive wardrobe by the time the holiday season is over.
|This is another beautiful bag by Linda. I think that this was|
going to be a gift ,but invariably we fall in love with
these beautiful and unique creations and want to own
|This is a charity quilt made by Linda. It will be donated to|
Donna Louise Trust later in the year. This is the right size
for the car seats that babies use.
|So sorry it is side ways on, but I quilted it Thursday morning|
(7-30 start) and as I love Wimbledon hand stitched the
binding watching tennis, Heaven!
|These are my new die cut houses, the start of my property|
empire. They would have been sewn on Wednesday, but I
forgot the invisible thread. Ah well the quilt got priority.
