Saturday's sewing workshop

On Saturday I attended my monthly sewing class, we made a Christmas Table Runner. It was a great project to use up all our fabric scraps. We appliqued christmas trees on the centre. I quilted the table runner with an all over star pattern. We had a great teacher, Norma was very patience with us! The highlight of the Christmas workshop each year is the hot turkey and stuffing sandwiches, they were as tasty as ever!


I wrapped my first Christmas present this weekend. I found a great gift bag to keep them in, its for one of my very good crafting friends!

Oh this is wonderful, I wish I could sew. Gorgeous colours and materials.
To paint with the Distress Inks I just pick up a small amount from the pad or put a drop of Re Inker in a palette and use a Koi waterbrush with a small amount of water in it. They are fab and so quick to use as they blend beautifully.
