This week rounds up the end of my current block of classes where we’ve been learning about twin needle quilting.

Just check out these amazing results!

Aren’t they fabulous!

 

I’m so proud of all my ladies, not just those who tackle the class project, but also those who work continuously on their generous gift making, charitable fund raisers, sharing inspiring new projects and continuing to fuel and feed their creativity.

 

And I get to call this my day job!! #lovemyjob

 

We are taking a one week break, and when we return it will be the last block of classes of 2018!

 

Tune in again soon to find out what our new class project will be.

 

Happy sewing!

Patchwork in the Peaks 14: Part 2

I promised to check in again and tell you about my makes at Patchwork in the Peaks (though they pale into insignificance compared to the fabulous makes of my fellow sewers).   Not fully understanding the brief of the weekend, I arrived with no personal projects to work on! Doh!   However, Elita has a … Continue reading “Patchwork in the Peaks 14: Part 2”
