Workroom Makeover

Seems ages since I've done any papercrafting what with Patchwork Summer School and then 2 days at the Festival of Quilts at the NEC and then over the last few days decorating and revamping my craft room.  Very pleased with the result though so now can get on with the creating part.

Patchwork Summer School

Seems ages since I updated my blog, been really busy over last couple of weeks with lots of sewing, I've been to Patchwork Summer School at Loughborough University run by a lovely lady called Sheila Scawen.

We spent a week sewing from 9am to 9pm which seems a long time but when you are enjoying yourself it goes really fast.  Had a lovely time meeting new people who shared ideas

Heres a few of the projects that I did during the week, some still need to be finished

Left will be cushion covers when completed
middle was all made up of triangles, once it has a border round it will be turned into a bag
right the start of a bed runner

I've done 2 of these and they will be quilted and made into cushion covers

the bedrunner with borders around, now just needs quilting and binding

twisted bag - very pleased with finished result
