May 2013



April totally disappeared, I didn’t  do anything for the two weeks of the Easter School holidays, we were away for part of it and then had some days out. It was then straight back to teaching and what was left of April was spent finishing off the squares for both the floral and block quilt that I have been teaching this year.


In the May edition of Poplar Patchwork they had a Dresden Plate design cushion and it made me think, one of the rulers that I have and find really useful is the Creative Grids Dresden Plate one. I had already decided to teach a couple of bits using specialist rulers and the Dresden Plate fitted in nicely with this…. So while teaching how to use the ruler I have made a Dresden Plate quilt!!! just another quilt to add to those that need quilting!!!!


While shopping in John Lewis for an Overlocker (Janome 9200D, brilliant, never used one before but it is making dressmaking soo much easier) I saw some Ted Baker bags. Laura told me all the girls are using them at school and this got me thinking….. I ended up rooting around for some PVC fabric I had left over and making a few bags and teaching, how to make them in class.
