Made a decision and chopped it off! Then went and spent money :-)

Over the fields this morning I met a friend who was clever with the garden and she said that I should chop my  flower off my rhubarb :-(  so dutifully came home and did as instructed.  I now have a very contemporary flower arrangement!!!!

Then it was my P&Q group this afternoon, we carried on with our photo image transfer,I was hoping that they all would come in with their designs and chosen fabrics, but alas no.  So the lesson was not as proactive as I had hoped.  Fingers crossed for next week.  I need to be more explicit on exactly what they need to do and what we will be doing the following week.  Also, need to get another P&Q technique ready for them to learn – probably Foundation Piecing as this would be quite useful for them to incorporate.

But Jean bought her round the world quilt in for us to see and her finished bag.  And Yoko also finished her bag, they both want to go bigger now they have learnt the technique

Then it was off to Craft Arena were I bought the much needed threads, got a bit carried away, as you do in Denise’s shop – that's why I normally ask Sharne to go for me!!

Then guess who should turn up -surprisingly  Sharne , who talked me into buying this months Cloth Paper Scissors

Denise was busily buying some beautiful wool, the sales man gave her two of the discontinued skeins which she has very kindly shared with Sharne and I – we have the job of splitting them into 3 – thank you Denise x

And now I have to get ready to go out to dinner with the girls.

The work looks great from your patchwork group, you must be inspiring them. I taught basic patchwork to my GCSE students today. For the first time this year, I actually got a positive response. No spark with this class normally. Well done for spending so much at Craft Arena!

A pretty penny in threads there. Well done Denise! I think thats what I would have done with the rhubarb flower too.
