Christmas is coming

Before the Christmas season totally takes over I thought I would give you a quick update on what has been happening in the sewing room.

I was keen to try and make some bowls using the 2.5mm grey board so these are the 2 that I managed to create by cutting and glueing the board and then covering them with decorative paper. Now they can sit on the table when I host the quilting group and gather up the threads as the ladies sew.

I purchased a Phillip Jacobs print and wanted to incorporate it into a top so I combined it with some black linen.

The Applique Mastery book written by Philippa Naylor arrived in my post box. After many years of quilting I have discovered there are endless ways to appliqué and Philippa showed me another  interesting way for this technique. I really enjoy how Philippa writes her books.

I love seeing how women process there creativity, so I really enjoyed watching this ladies work.
