July 2013


The Open Day at Fairkytes went really well and was very busy at my stand and the Lacemakers one next to mine. Both of us had lots of interest and both my Tuesday classes are full for September. Still places left on the Wednesday afternoon.


Classes are over till September. I managed to get both of the quilts we had been working on this year finished for the last week. So, took both the Block Quilt and the Floral Quilt (pictures will be on Gallery as soon as we can) into class and also the Summer Challenge.

Every year at the last class I set, for those coming back a challenge, last years was to make a ‘building’ box. This year I gave them a design of a flower and leaf and said ‘do something with this!!’. To give them some inspiration I made up a cushion using the design.


Other than needlework I had a busy time making 72 decorated fairy cakes, 24 vanilla, 24 lemon and 24 chocolate and also a 7” decorated Victoria Sponge for my Step-Mum’s 70th birthday party. We had fun getting them up to Derbyshire in one piece!!! But we did and they went down well.
