Our last day was a relaxed affair. I chose to carry on and make progress on my little pink number. It was a mammoth feat to stitch around all of those curves on the oval but at last they were done and we could płay with the centre.
Several fabrics were auditioned from my stash but this one sang out to me. I had the perfect fabric to fussy cut the side bits to the vase and to make the base by adding two fabrics together. A mix of traditional and modern but they work. It was fun cutting out flowers. Now it is taking shape.
I had a lesson on making bias stems Marg style. I have never come across this way before but it was so quick and easy and therapeutic. Think I could have sat making these all afternoon. They are wonderfully soft and stretchy and no burnt fingers in the process.
I think you can tell by our faces that we had a great time.
My friend Anne who had also been on all four days had been working on this quilt and got stuck on how to finish it. Marg gave advise and by the end of the week it looked fabulous. I will need Anne's permission to show you the whole thing but those parrots are from an amazing piece of fabric.
Marg is a legend and has agreed to come back next year. I do hope so and I hope there will be something to show her in the way of progress. I hope you will come and join us next time.
I was so reluctant to leave this lovely atmosphere but I had to brave the journey home as Storm Doris was raging.
