My tasks for this weekend involve pattern writing and stitching. I worked on a border for the Durham Quilt yesterday and stitched today.
At the class this week Karen brought her finished hexagon bag - love the colours.
and it's full of knitting - a lovely cable baby blanket.
We had chocolate orange cupcakes,
and did a lot of chatting - we even fitted in some sewing time. Steph made a lovely little pram quilt for a friend's baby - if she hasn't finished it yet I'll try and get a picture.
The Durham Quilts are coming on apace. I'm busy designing a border for one lovely lady who has made a 4 x 3 quilt and wants it to be bigger. She's doing an amazing job as this is her first quilting project - her stitches are so beautifully neat. She has chosen a lovely mustard coloured thread to match the back of the quilt so there is nowhere to hide uneven stitches! She's really keen to design her own whole cloth quilt next. I just love the enthusiasm of the ladies at this class.
On a rather sad note, Ben's little rabbit was stolen from our back garden this week.
Will put a message on social media and it looks like someone took her in a drunken state. We may get her back but I'm not holding out any hopes.
I haven't seen Ben and Max this weekend as they've been to Christenings and rugby matches (I'm secretly loving the peace) but look forward to seeing them all tomorrow.
So, I'll be finishing off the patterns and getting ready for the start of the Autumn Term. I've been back at work for nearly two weeks but it's a whole different ball game when the children are there!
