A Good Friday!

Of course, there were Hot Cross Buns at the Easter workshop – and delicious, home-made lemon biscuits.

Participants were learning to knit (thank you ‘Associate Expert Tutor’ Pat), cutting-out a blouse (Duke of Edinburgh project), making progress on the Marta quilt and creating a pom-pom Easter chick.

(Not surprisingly, Sid decided to find somewhere quiet to snooze and did not carry out his usual pattern layout inspection.)

 

The Granny Quilt

For several months, two grandmothers, regularly joined me at a Friday afternoon Sew-in-Company workshop to create the two sides of a delightful quilt for their first granddaughter.

‘Thank you so much for my lovely mat (which mum has only just unpacked!) It’s great for playing with my toys on while mum gets ready in the mornings and for watching Pinocchio on with dad before bath time – I love it!’

Grannies Caroline, Jackie and ‘Great-granny’ Pat loved making it too – with a little help from Sid!

Marta’s Quilt

Having made a lovely mat for new baby Sebastian, Dorota is now making a bed cover for her daughter Marta who is five. The design will feature, in the centre of each square, a piece of fushia or purple fabric from the legs of Marta’s favourite toddler dungarees (now converted to shorts for Sebastian).

Sebastian enjoyed helping to select some suitable additional fabrics!
