Finally The Spring Is Here

Last Sunday I went along to a small quilt exhibition held in a  Victorian looking house to raise money for the Loros Cancer charity. I took some pictures of a few items that really caught my eye and gave me some ideas. The needlework which really spoke to me and just my style were some things that Id love to have a go at and do something similar.  I bought a tiny heart with a pink ribbon stuffed with lavender and a beautiful tiny hexagon needle case that really pulled my heart strings, they always do.
A week has already flown and I said to my Jim I really must down load some photos for my blog.
On the Tuesday mornings I still go to my one to one knitting classes and on a Wednesday, Ive been making an effort to take my Pfaff sewing machine to my friend Jean's house so that I could get used to using it again after a long non sewing spell.
I'm pleased to note that last Thursday while the weather was throwing it down with rain, I managed to sew up two fleece shawls for Jean and her friend.  My mum made me a fleece shawl cut from a large square with the tips folded back that made pockets.  When the nights have been chilly this has been my best friend so I thought it would be a good idea to practise using the sewing machine again.
Jean was really please with her shawl and I'm sure the lady who Jean will be seeing next Monday will be pleased too. Hope you all manage to have a creative weekend will try and write again soonx
