Hello everyone! I hope you've been enjoying some glorious sunshine in your part of the world!
We have had several beautiful days here. Doesn't a sunny day just lift one's spirits!!
Time got away from me a bit this week, but don't worry, I haven't forgotten to bring you the posts on my Spring into Summer projects. I will get those posted this week.
In the meantime, I have a few pics to share with you from our Applique workshop yesterday!
8 courageous ladies decided to put their 'big girl' pants on and tackle satin stitch applique head on! And not just satin stitch applique, but 'appli-quilting' - combining the techniques of applique and quilting into one step.
After practising a few leafy shapes, they got stuck into either a Tree Wallhanging, or a leafy cushion.
The sun shone all day, and despite the temperature rising in the room, there was no swearing or major catastrophies!!
Aren't these beautiful! We had a definite 'blue theme' running through some of the leaves, as well as fresh spring yellows, reds, pinks and purples!
And even a dramatic black and grey variation (the leaves on that one will be linen creams).
Well done everyone! You brought your willingness to learn a new skill, and some fun and banter with it! Enjoy your new creations!
(The Autumn Tree Wallhanging pattern is available here.)
