Yesterday was my Zippy Pouches workshop, a day to conquer the ‘Fear of the Zip’!

 

Zippy Pouches Workshop Aug18

 

My courageous ladies could choose from a simple but perfectly formed ‘Easy Peasy Pouch’ or the ‘Gracie Pouch’ which included a template and a flange feature.

 

And just look at what they achieved!

Applique Leaf Workshop Finishes!

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.

 

Applique Cushion/Wallhanging Workshop April'18

 

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.)
