Hen Party, Hand Embroidery and Quilt as You Go.

 

We had a lovely day last week with a glamorous bunch of girls celebrating Maria’s forthcoming marriage. It was a proper hen party, with champagne and strawberries dipped in chocolate, but instead of the usual hen party activities they had chosen to have a crafting day.

There were several different activities on the go, including raggy wreaths, proddy hearts, rag rug landscapes, rag rugs and felt decorations.

They managed to achieve lots of work despite the champagne !

We also had a day learning hand embroidery stitches which were used to create some lovely cottage garden pictures.

Using sheers and chiffons to create the background, the gardens were stitched using a variety of threads and stitches.

We had another full house at The Fabbadashery this weekend for the  ‘Quilt as You Go’ course.  Lots of very enthusiastic and creative students, and some great results.
