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.)
A very pleasant Friday afternoon spent with baby Anabelle’s quilt-making grandmothers (and mother) making two simple work tabards.
During the hotter summer months, the conservatory is less than ideal for sewing, but we move to the shadier end! A simple top and stretchy dress were nearly completed by Lucrezia and Lucy (Patty was resting her eyes).
Sisters Rebecca and Rachel (Katie), mother Edwina and grandmother Hilda.
Deep in concentration!
Toy or doorstop?
Begun when Dorota was pregnant, Sebastian’s quilt was completed shortly after his birth!
Sid is satisfied that this chair is comfortable and worth recovering – with fabric sourced from the WI Denman college. Rachel’s helping create a pattern from the old cover.
Work on these outfits for three sisters began at a workshop. Worn at a party in Denmark with an oriental theme – the couple work in China where the beautiful silk was bought.
At the workshop, Cathy was also thrilled to repair her son’s school trousers and the sisters collaborated to make a wedding gift cushion!
Just having creative fun!
