It is just amazing how much can be made with just half a meter of fabric.
Key fob's ,Phone /coin /card purses and the bags are ready for Apple Day
at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse,
Now I have nothing left.
Looking at my photos I think I might need a new camera ,perhaps put
it on my Christmas list.
I am now working on making Advent Calendars ready for next month.
The Norfolk Young Quilter is going from strength to strength we now
have 15 girls . The stack and wack cushion cover was not only mad but
Quilted all with time to spare, we have helper stay to supervise only.
The next meeting is hand sewing just to give them something different.
Next week M.C and I will be making shopper bags to sell at coffee mornings
to raise money for more supply's for the N,Y,Q.
Well back to the sewing machine ,after a coffee.
have a good week end

The centre panel is made from squares of red or cream with squares of cream folded on the corners. The folded edge is then rolled and hand stitched in place. The above is made from two strips of cream and a strip of red stitched with folded edges onto the red .I have stitched a bar at intervals so I can roll the edge and stitch that down. These are all different elements from Jenny's book ( Creative Tucks and Textures ) I will try and get more done this week but I have our Craft fair this week and Norfolk Young Quilters an Saturday.
