Door Draft!

I have been playing down in my "cave" and because of the winds we get where we live. I know that in Portugal you think you only get lovely sunny weather. Well mostly we do, lovely blue skies, hot weather etc. Saying that we are getting a late summer, of 31ยบ, which to be honest is not normal at the end of September.

Anyway I decided to make a draft stopper for our main door into the house. Here is the finished result. I unfoutnately used a whole bag of stuffing, which had been put to one side for Sara to make her teddy bear. Not a very happy girl when she got home from school today to find I had used the whole lot up.Oops. Anyway here is a picture of it. I am really pleased with it, if I say so myself.
Now what shall I do next?!

Wednesday Classes

Haven't added anything for Wednesday classes, as I haven't taken many photo´s, but here are a few that I took. In no particular order.
We have had a couple of new ladies, who have been making the Rail Fence tablerunner. I never get tired of seeing what comes out based on the fabrics choosen, no two are alike. As far as I know, anyway.


Last week at Patchmania, I had a group of lovely ladies who came and made the following purse, using a pinwheel method.

And also on our regular Monday group Ana made it as well.
And here is Cristina's cathedral window alternative, that she hopes she keeps for herself!!

Will try, but no guarantee's to take more photos in class.
