At the Roundabout, Up the Garden Path
When you live in a small town there is always a little bit of gossip mixed in with local news. The best place in my town to find out what the go is on any given topic is at the local Quilt Shop. And so it is each Thursday morning that a group of us gather each week and stitch away whilst we catch up with the latest local news and swap stories about all sorts of interesting things. My golly I have learned a lot LOL. Everything from underwear to vegie gardening! Because there have been two other sewing circles in the week before Thursday, the news is so much more complete by the time our group meets! We laugh a lot and surprisingly, we do get some work done.
I'm nearly finished my homework from the last Quilt Class. I wasn't thrilled with the idea of hand piecing, but I was ever so wrong. It is so much more accurate and forgiving. The pieces seem to go together so much better for some reason. Yes it is more time consuming, but it also far more portable and so stitching is able to be done at times and in places where I would never drag my sewing machine along to! So above is my current block for this month.
