My Ladies Wot Sew’s group had an in house workshop making, of all things, pop up thread catchers. You’d think I would be fed up of making these but no I quite enjoy them – simple and useful and fairly quick too.
I found this Youtube tutorial which I think is a good one.
Of course we didn’t finish them on the day
but here are three of them a week later,
together with some needle cases we made a few weeks before. We’ve decided that we quite like all making the same things every once in a while so I anticipate more ‘group sewing items’ in the future 🙂
If anyone has any ideas of some little makes we can sew please share – all ideas are welcome.
Did I mention that I’ve joined a new Quilting group? Well after years of only stitching at home I am now a member of 3 groups and I’m enjoying the company very much.
My new quilt group had a social stitching day last week and as they make charity quilts throughout the year for the local baby unit I decided to spend my time making my first ever charity quilt.
This is it, although the first photo showed a sneak peek of it!
As you can see the binding hasn’t been done yet and that’s because I want to machine attach the binding front and back and just need to find the time to read up about it and then do it!
But have a closer look…
I finally, thanks to all your encouragement, plucked up the courage to fmq on a real quilt! It’s not perfect by any means and I can tell when I got tired and tense but it’s a start 🙂
Enjoy your sewing today 🙂
Until next time,
