I am so lucky to be part of a group that has regular sewing retreats - they are held just down the road and I go for the days... and lovely full days of sewing they are... with a good mix of yummy food, great company and the odd chocolate, and maybe cake …..
I took Ocean Deep to work on the Friday …. I had done the pieced strips and it really was just adding the other strips on.... I really love this ….
Only part of the jelly roll was used and the rest have been pieced into strips (with a dozen extra strips) and also cut into triangles to be sewn into something different
Saturdays sewing consisted of using a Quick Curve ruler to make this runner. I'm delighted with it. The grey has subtle bits of shiny silver in it. It is about 18" x 54" so quite big and I'm looking forward to having some fun quilting it.
The pattern for this is a freebie from Sew Kind of Wonderful. Of course you need the special ruler but I did this from start to finish in a morning.
We had such a beautiful day, even if it started a bit chilly … and the grounds where we are look lovely …
For the afternoon I started sewing the slashes and sashing on my Safari quilt which I had cut and prepared some time ago.....
I'm hoping to get this together tomorrow …..
Righto, Gotto Go... need to get some sleep. Hope you are all having a lovely weekend ….
