Good day!

Not a lot of sewing has been done this past month - work is very busy and it's been hard to motivate myself once home in the evening!   Have parked off a bit watching mindless television with daughter, and slowly stitching on a block or two of Just Takes 2.  Applique is not my favourite!



Today I presented my first mini workshop to my monthly quilt group - on Mitred Corners - had everyone hand stitching borders on small squares finishing with mitred corners.  Out of about 30 ladies only half a dozen or so had used mitres before.   In preparing the class found an interesting method which I also experimented with on a hexagon - this worked well.   I get really nervous, and forgot to say half of what I prepared, even though all written down, never mind, I'll email them all the notes!  Maybe pictures next time!

I believe my 8 year-old niece is sewing up a storm with my mother (her new-to-quilting grandmother) - just waiting for some photos!  And my sister is waiting for me to send scraps, so said niece can show her mother how to sew them!

Happy sewing, everyone!
