After a week where life’s given me a couple of lemons, it was sweet indeed to spend a day with the cheery bunch who make up the St Mark’s Quilters .
It was our final Saturday workshop for the year, and we celebrated in style with presents, tinsel, Christmassy food, lots of “show and tell”, and an al fresco lunch in the garden, in the shade of the Golden Robinia tree.
Santa (alias Di B) stitched up Christmas gift bonbons for everyone, containing various quilters’ gadgets.And there was a surprise for Di B herself - a mug mat from me, adapted from Jodi’s tutorial on Pleasant Home. You’ll have spotted my
unintentionally deliberately wonky tree! Di had pre-cut fabrics and batting so she could teach us how to make a Christmas gift bonbon for ourselves. (Sometimes a teacher just has to so something silly to get the class’s attention! ) Helen went to the top of the class, being the first to finish. And Di C deserves to be proud of hers too!
I have so many photos to share this time that I thought I might post a few each day for most of this week, so please come back tomorrow for more :-))
