Wednesday's Class

It was a public holiday yesterday, but we had a workshop in the morning as some ladies that work wanted to make Christmas Balls and purses. It was so busy that I had trouble in taking pictures so the only picture I was able to take was this of Teresa's balls that she had done at home after the workshop she had attended.

The 3 ladies making the balls.
The remaining 5 ladies were around the otherside making purses, which I didn't manage to get photos of.

And then........ it was off to lunch to reveal the Row by Row we have been doing for the last couple of months. It was hard to keep the secret and not show any of the work we have been doing these months on my blog!! It started by everyone making their own row of blocks or in Mariya's case applique and she chose to repeat this process through everyone elses rows when it came for her turn to the other ladies. So it will be a reminder to all of us of the lovely work Mariya does in applique and stitchery.
Here is Mariya's

Irene's which has a handpainted chicken scene by Fernanda
and mine
and finally a group photo of us all! Including I hope our next generation of quilters.
A final note to say that I really enjoyed taking part in the Row by Row and hopefully the ladies did too. I think Paula and I are thinking of doing another in the new year, but slightly on a different theme and over a longer period of time!


  1. Congratulations on your Row by Row project. I must admit I'm a bit jealous for I couldn't be a part of it. Maybe next time.All of the quilt tops are wonderful.

  2. I loved spend the day with you all! it was so fun!!
    can i repeat ?
