Ok …….where to start!
Firstly, all the children that take part in our Sewing Bee have all been set a task after Christmas. It involved a block of quilting with their hand print bonded and stitched by hand or machine. They then added their initials…… well it’s now finished and it’s so amazing and I’m extremely proud……
Carrying on with the quilting theme…..my younger group of entrants to the Festival of Quilts have busy preparing……
Whilst my older entrants have also been preparing and dying…..
My Monday and second group on a Saturday have been busy learning to attach zips and making wonderful pencil cases…..
My little tiny stitchers on a Tuesday have been practicing straight lines by making tote bags, fully lined and looking fab…..
My Wednesday group are focusing on making Lolly the Owl……
And in between that I have another group creating their selfies……
Now for a date for your diary…….
