There were three jolly sew-days during the festive season – alas I had neglected to remember the third and was still slumbering when my sewers rang the doorbell!
The ‘multicoloured dream gown’, white blouse, toy bag and Sebastian’s quilt all made progress.
… and two elephants were created.
A month of minor projects:
The combination of navy and black and shiny pocket edging was necessitated by shortage of fabric – the elasticated back of the grey stripy version of the pattern was replaced by darts to avoid the potato sack look.
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.)
Made from tweed, velvet and cord scraps – a very special gift for a new-born which gave much pleasure in the making.
