hexagon madness

Hi all,

I went to a Sue Daley class on the weekend.  Learnt english paper piecing.  I chose This Goes With That, which is a series of 21/2 inch hexagons, made up of many different shapes.  We learnt to fussy cut, to make many different designs.  I won't look at fabric the same way again.

I have lost my camera, but have many good photos for you when I find it.

I have started to piece my red plates embroderies together and it looks really good.

I hope to fly to Melbourne for the weekend, if the vocanic ash clears, if not we will have to drive.

Clean sewing room

Hi everyone,

Have had a great weekend.  I was able to spend sometime in the sewing room and have given it a good tidy up.  All my fabric is now in some sort of order, and I should be able to see what I have more easily now.

I was able to make a block for a swap, a cover for my new kindle, and make some progress on a secret quilt.   Also some applique too.

I am in for a busy week, as I am speaking to a Rotary club on Monday night about Can Assist and have Cooper for the day on Tuesday, watching Ellie's choir and then stitching class on Wednesday and Thursday a few business meetings.  It is a long weekend next weekend and we going to friend's place in Goulburn.

I will try to come back later this week with some photos.
