I took part in the 'Iron Man Challenge' with Shevvy, Annie and whole load of other uber-competent souls. While our quilt top might have been the smallest it was definitely the bestest in my eyes.
SIT would approve I feel. This is the item I made - a London bus pincushion that has the destination 'FQ 2012' on the front and to keep it in, a little painted box. The design on the front is Aneela Hooey's embroidery pattern she taught on Saturday afternoon.
This is Maisey. She is the work (joy) of the very clever and talented Katy at The Littlest Thistle. There were several examples of Katy's skill and cleverness came along and sadly they all went home with Katy again too. I feel sure Maisey would have liked a visit to the West Country
Having stared uncomprehendingly at the instructions and the fabric for my Union Jack pillowcase for several minutes my poor stupid self was rescued by the lovely Lu. I was banned from using the cutter and shown how to properly wield a long ruler. Once everything was all perfectly sized and beautifully cut I returned to class so Lynne could give me the idiotproof tutorial.
