Cushions, Skirts and Steeking!

At this time of year my workshop schedule is really busy so I have been hoarding pictures of the beautiful finished things for a few weeks. I have visited Black Sheep Wools for the first time; it won’t be the last! It is Fantastic. A wonderful workshop room with top notch sewing machines, tons of space and endless tea, coffee and cake. We were making cushions and here they are:

Sadly, I left having spent a brilliant day with the 5 ladies, sure that I would remember whose cushion was whose and have now forgotten :(

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Having been so rubbish on that occasion, I actually made notes on my phone for my skirt workshop at Guthrie and Ghani on Friday. Fabric envy is rife on any workshop I do here because Lauren has such a yummy range. I inevitably end up wanting the fabric someone has chosen. This time it was Nicky’s. While I didn’t buy the same fabric, I did succumb to some mustard jersey to make another Coco dress.

And everyone had fabric envy of Lucy’s wool and cotton tweed. A great choice for autumn.

Then there was Rachel who was channelling Orla Kielyesque stems and Sarah who had set her heart on the Tula Pink fabric before she even arrived!

Knitting wise we had fun at The Knitting Parlour doing magic loop fairisle and some steeking. Here is Karynne chopping into her knitting and Penny with a before and after shot.

After all that I am going to do some sewing today, maybe make the mustard dress, maybe not…
Happy sewing!
