Workshop And Finishes.

Posted on | December 2, 2015 | 17 Comments

December has raced up very quickly and I am sure it will speed up even more as we get closer to Christmas. Good luck with all your Christmas shopping and sewing.

I had the good fortune to attend a wonderful workshop with Keryn of Christmas Creations. A group of four of us worked hard in the morning and ended up each with our own Nodder.

I thought this one was a bit lonely so made sure some friends came home, too.

As well as being a great teacher, Keryn is also a great cook and served up a scrumptious morning tea. Thank you, Keryn, for a wonderful workshop. I am looking forward to doing this again!

I have made a finish on another of my quilts. The binding is stitched down and it is ready to go.

I would like to play with this pattern again using different colours. I enjoyed the way this design came together.

It certainly used up a load of scraps, many of them very old.

The backing fabric is a field of dandelions.

Okay, time to get more shopping done. Good luck with all your finishes leading up to Christmas.

Cheers, Karen.
