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…..
a beautiful cross stitch from Dilys
some painstaking unpicking from Jan to make her husband’s quilt just perfect!
And, a steady job for Hilary winding thread and wool
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
And, Sally reached the finishing post first with her beautifully made caddy
Show and tell revealed that members don’t seem to stop when they are at home. Salinder had made a beautiful small quilt from scraps
Jan showed everyone an apron that she had made and which others were keen to make
And Sue Thomas showed a quilt that members of the Swan Street quilters had made for Sue Bowers.
Monica showed a small art quilt that she had made from samples of fabrics that she had dyed at Dyeing to Paint
And she has finally finished her Ineke Berlin design bag
Fiona, though absent today, sent photos of work that she has been working on which look wonderful and we look forward to seeing them close up in the near future
What a wondeful and varied day – well done everyone!
