March day school

On Saturday, Jackie Martin lead our day school. She had given out instructions prior to the day that required us to collect and then dye small pieces of lace. There was quite a lot of discussions as to the merits of coffee versus various brands of tea.


  As usual, Jackie had worked very hard before our meeting producing kits for us. We were therefore able to start straight away. 002

Above you can see how I started to place lace onto my fabric.We then used machines to attach the lace. Once this was done, we could start applying buttons and beads and lots of surface stitches.

We had a lovely lunch, made by Lesley, Ann and Barbara and Lesley spoiled us by bringing drinks to our work stations.003

We all worked really hard and completed out Memory Heart and in fact I believe we all started a second one. As usual I wanted to get mine finished so spent a lovely afternoon in the garden adding buttons and beads to my second.DSCF5563Thank you Jackie, when are you coming to us again?
