April 2015


The diary is a bit later than normal, as we have been away over the Easter Break visiting family.

I didn’t think I had done a lot in March but I have just looked in my ‘work’ log and it’s surprising how much I completed. Firstly I finished weaving a scarf, then there was the Mother’s Day postcards. I then completed a Mushroom Home cot/bed quilt for publication later in the year in Popular Patchwork.


For Easter teaching projects I created some little reversible gift bags, tulip cushions and finally a rabbit cushion. Actually the rabbit cushion was originally designed in 1995 as part of a child’s quilt, I was looking for another pattern when I came across it and decided it would make a great cushion design.

Also for Easter I created ten quilted postcards and I finished another six, including the latest duck!!!  And finally I finished knitting an Aran style and weight waistcoat.

And I thought I hadn’t done much!!!! At least I keep a work log and write in when I finish stuff or I would forget half that I do.


The Summer term starts on Tuesday 14th April, there are a few spare spaces.

I am starting the morning class with 3D flowers, then Celtic work both by demand!!! And finally we are going to do a double sided scrap quilt, made as quilt-as-you-go, so depending on the size you want, depends on the number of pieces you make. The afternoon class I am going to be doing a butterfly runner, again quilt-as-you-go, but they are going to design their own butterflies!!!!
