I missed a big chunk of Winter , but coming back from really hot weather, it has been hard. We have had cold, gloomy rainy days. However I try not to let it get to me.There are so many things to be grateful for .
Sewing my hold and cherish bag over and over again has made me so comfortable with my sewing machine that Sewing has become my craft of choice lately.There is not one thing that I don’t like now. Not even ripping out seams!
The pattern is a bit addictive in its simplicity and the variety of results that can be achieved with the change of prints and colour in fabric.
The previous quilt blocks I made as part of the quilt along are still not complete. I will get to it sooon. Only the last set of blocks remain but I have as usual got distracted with new shiny stuff.
A local fabric store is offering a beginners quilting class . The hours and distance were convenient so I decided to go for it. Laid back and friendly , it was a good first class.
The shopaholic in me was secretly delighted to have a store full of assorted fabrics to choose from .
I decided to go with this purple and aqua combination for my first block which is the simple Nine patch.
Each block teaches a new skill .One done, eleven more to go.
