January 2012



I have finished making The Gerbera Daisy postcards, all ten of them! I prepared them for sewing before Christmas but with all the gifts I was making, they have only just got finished!


So I am now working on this half terms work, firstly A Green Man wallhanging, designed by our twelve year old daughter, who has been doing an art project at school on him. I showed my classes and they wanted to do him.


Then, Nine Patch blocks and Disappearing Nine patch quilt, very simple to do and great for charm packs. Then Double Wedding Ring, something I swore when I learnt how to do it over 20 years ago, I would never make it again, but with the new methods it is much simpler. The finished quilt is going to be our 20th anniversary present - got till September to finish it!!!


The final project for this half term will be landscapes both postcard size and also wallhanging, the finished ones will be very interesting to see, as all the classes will make them so different. That’s one of the great things about teaching is seeing how the same design is interpreted by everybody with their own colours and fabrics.


Once that is all done I have curtains to make for my sister and loads of ideas to play with - a dress for the Queens jubilee!!!!
