Wednesday's Class

At class we had Helena showing her X-Block tablerunner and how to use up the excess triangles you get after cutting your X-Block. They will be used in the border.
Teresa had taken a day off work to learn the Cathedral Windows technique and was going to continue with it more at home to make a pillow. She knew that the 3inch squares that she had bought would come in useful one day!
And Madelena was making small purses to give as last minute Christmas presents, but her faithful Elna machine had decided to play naughty at class. It has such a lovely sound when it sews and she has had it for about 20 years, but still going strong.
And this lady (sorry name problem again) was still working on her Bag from a workshop we had done earlier in the year,
but she is only able to visit about twice a year, she also had forgotten how to attach the binding, but we got there. I remember Angela when she was here in Portugal saying to make a block and add the binding around with pins with the various stages, still have it! She also has a tutorial on her blog for attaching binding. Check it out.

Well that was my last workshop for this year before my DH returns home after working almost 7 months in Africa. Sara is so excited to be getting to have her Papá home for the holiday's after all this time, me too.

So I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Feliz Natal and all good things in 2011.
