A Flying Start to the New Year!

The first CE session got off to a flying start today with great enthusiasm to be involved in various projects that are on the go.

In the far corner of the room a small group worked hard during the day to prepare the Project Linus blocks for quilt as you go and were extremely grateful to those who offered to take a strip home to sew them together.

And there was great enthusiasm to make the fabric windmills for the Swansea Festival of Stitch exhibition which takes place in August. What wonderful a splash of colour they are going to make. Many thanks to Sally for bringing her fabric stash along for us to use and many thanks to those who bought some of the fabric. £87 was raised which Sally plans to donate to a breast cancer charity.

Others were busy on various project – many of which are sea themed – I wonder why!!!

Hillary was making cushions to go with a quilt that she has recently made

Chris was embellishing some images that she created at last weeks Dyeing to Paint

Sally was sewing a fish which some lovely fabric that she said used to be her sister’s curtains!

Our guest Janet was busy making fabric windmills in a quilt as you go technique – what a coincidence!

Fiona showed everyone a beautiful bag she had made – it looks as though it is quilted but but the panels are painted!

And Jane showed a quilt that she has recently completed. Love the colours

A busy and productive day. Many thanks to everyone for their support which, as always, is very much appreciated!
