Its been an amazing time for us here and even more exciting things ahead.
So it’s been half term and my little man has had to put up with all things Haberdashery related. He’s been a lovely little helper and we’ve had board games to keep us entertained……I’m sure my mum was cheating though….
Half term in the sewing bee has consisted of appliqué and quilting on the selfies …..
Some super hand sewing to finish the rag dolls……
Also further updates on the quilting entries….
My younger group have started to piece together….
And my older group are free motion quilting….
Now it’s time for the adults…..These ladies have been an absolute pleasure to work with. They have cut, pieced, quilted and binded their quilt and the results are amazing…..
There’s still a couple of spaces available on my May quilting course.
You can see full details of this course and other courses here
The deliveries this week have been huge…
A whole new collection of sewing boxes, tote bags and knitting bags arrived and have been very popular….
And an even bigger delivery from Stylecraft….
I’ve been busy prepping for exhibitions and getting a bit nervous.
The stands arrived….
And I’ve been busy, designing and stitching a wall hanging of Swadlincote history which is finished and ready to hang.
Dyed fabric, free motion sketching, hand stitching, thread painting and a ridiculous amount of threads…..
Over the next week or so I have two exhibitions lined up…
Firstly Belper Art Trail this bank holiday weekend
and Derbyshire Open Arts in May
