Last Sunday some of the Sew and Sews participated in a WEA machine quilting class - lots of new things were learnt but the inadequacies of my machine was the thing I learnt the most - shame as it is only three months old - however I can still do some of the things we learnt and quickly set about making a bright and colourful nine patch for Non - (H's fantastic teacher from when he was in reception who is going through a bumpy patch) - I hope the new quilt will brighten her up a bit - I have had fun pulling all the bits together from my stash. But no sewing this week as I am at the opening of The Hypochondriac by Brink Productions tonight, a street party in Queen Street for SALA on Thursday and then Friday and Saturday at Second Valey for a girls weekend- lots of nice things to do but no sewing. But - do plan to finish piecing the top next week so I can take it to the WEA class the following Sunday for some tips and tricks - there I have said it now so aim to get it done!!!
