On friday we had the first ever workshop at Little Quilt Store....
Some of the ladies chose to make the Beehive Needlebook, for which they had bought one of our kits.
Did you spot all the packaging with Japanese writing scattered on the table??? We were trialling a brilliant new product during the workshop and I will tell you more about it later, we all loved it so I am sure you will too but before I can tell you all about it I need to wait for MrPostman to bring my parcel that I sent myself from Tokyo.
Others had chosen to make Shepherds Cottage bag, we had fun learning some simple embroidery stitches, applique and used our glue pens to make doing English Paper Pieced hexagons quick and easy. I loved the little scrap holder one of the ladies brought for her rubbish, so cute.
Lousie and Judy had come all the way from Sydney to attend the day, they stayed at the Ramada which is on the beach across the road from the store.
If you wondering about the quilt on the wall its from my book 'An Angels Wish' which contains the pattern for this quilt and 9 other angel orientated projects :) This book was one of my first self publsihed books, Lara the girl who did the layout for most of my self published books is now the creative director for Frankie Magazine and her unerring style is evident in my books as well as the magazine.
Well, its a beautiful sunny Sunday morning here and its time for me to make a nice cup of tea and plan what to stitch...think I need to write a list and prioritise the stitching as I seem to have rather alot of half started things and really they need to be finished with patterns written things!
