Today I have been to a lovely workshop at The Bramble Patch - a round journey of nearly six hours but oh so worth it. We were a gang of 4 - Sewingbuddy, Jean, Pat (who drove - thank goodness!) and myself and we had a start time of 5:45am!!! You need to also spare some sympathy for the fifth member of our group - Auntie Sue - who acted as Dogsitter and started her duties at 5:40!
The early start was to miss the rush hour traffic- an aim that was achieved and which saw us arriving at Watford Gap services for a cuppa and breakfast around 9am.
The workshop was about transposing some patchwork applique using Teflon sheets - a skill which can now be added to my repertoire. Sewingbuddy got on well with her Freddie Pheasant whilst I was a little slower - both of them will, eventually, be made into a cushion and mine might, just might, end up as someone's Christmas present! Ssh!
Meanwhile Daisy sent me a selfie to reassure me that all was well back at home - the place that I have only just returned to!
However it has been an excellent day and one that I can thoroughly recommend to anyone interested in patchwork! A huge thank you must go to Pat and to Auntie Sue for their sterling efforts!! x
