Another Industrious Day at Cutting Edge!

Cutting Edge sessions never fail to entertain and today was no exception. The group of hand stitchers at the table were busy working on various wonderful pieces of work…..

some painstaking unpicking from Jan to make her husband’s quilt just perfect!

The other Hillary was quietly busy in the corner making a free machine embroidery cake stand that she plans to fill with free machine embroidered cup cakes – we can’t wait to see the finished project. It will be awesome!

Those on the sidelines were engrossed in making an iron caddy similar to one that Monica had made in the past and with a pattern downloaded from the internet

    Indeed, what a wonderful community day at Cutting Edge – especially big thanks to Monica for organising the iron caddy project today – also for all the advice and tips I received from numerous members of CE
