Sue & Annette's day

Wednesday the girls and I spent the day at Bedford on a fairly informal workshop day. There were some very nice bag instructions to follow with help, or you can just "do your own thing". I choose to work on a couple of finishing up projects while Abigail worked on her paper pieced hexagons and her crochet. Eleanor made herself a friendship bracelet on a Kumihimo board and after lunch played with sewing together some fabric on the sewing machine.

It is always such a friendly day and I never fail to come away not having learnt something new.
This day was no exception as I loved a table runner Enid was working on using an unusual method of putting triangles together. A carpet bag that Penny had made was also now on my "to do " list.

One of the nice things about the day, when we arrived home Chris had cooked dinner for us.
Really want to make this bag, Penny had made two of them.

A lunch time break had Eleanor climbing in the playground attached to the church

St Marks Church hall is an ideal place for a workshop.

I cannot believe the bad luck we are having at the moment, it seems to go on and on... First the good news: I attended a sewing day at Bed...
