Stained Glass, fabric boxes and mug rugs

Gosh I have had a really busy time – last time I wrote was for the twins’ birthday –                        IMG_2179

The piggy and horse were a great success – my grand-daughter said – “My Piggy!”.  She was delighted and Robin, my grandson, really loved the hobby-horse.  The stick came out very soon of the piggy (it was so big) and I haven’t been back to fix it yet.

Storrington Quilters has had a super busy time – made useful fabric boxes in early May

We have a stand at St Mary’s Sullington Flower Festival and hope to show and sell some quilts, as well demonstrate some quilting and appliqueing.

I signed up for a mug rug swap with Quilters Gallery and have swapped mine for Sally’s in Alabama.  Really pleased – fun to do and I have a new friend.  Can’t be bad!  Both Sally and I have made the same pattern :  First is Sally’s – love the pinkness and quilting, her butterfly and boat

Sally's mugrugs

and now mine:  Same pattern plus the two coasters I made for her.

Ann's mugrug!

I really must work on my photography – she took the photos of mine and I took the photos of hers. Her photo is so much clearer than mine!

I have drawn up a new Workshop schedule for the summer/autumn and have posted it here – I already have people interested in the Beginners and Beyond Beginners course – I plan also to offer another Intermediate class.

I have been thinking about offering a Wadding/Batting workshop – a couple hours or so, to discuss which wadding is which and what each is best for.  I hope to be able to make some quilt examples to be able to demonstrate this better. Anyone interested, let me know!

Enjoy the weather.
