Well I have had the most wonderful weekend ever!
Meeting Kellie from Don't Look Now and doing her workshop was a great experience. If you have the opportunity to attend one of her classes - don't hesitate!
I could gush on and on about how great the weekend was! But just let me say - I honestly learnt so much, one reason is probably because I haven't done any real classes for at least 2 years. I mean basting spray! Who knew! What a fantastic product.
Also, Kellies techniques are great and her way of teaching puts you at ease and makes it easier for you to learn - no pressure! I actually surprised myself with what I achieved - I thought I was terrible at machine quilting but that was obviously because of how I was taught previously.
This is my unfinished practice piece. The quilting is a bit wonky but with practice I hope to get much better! Once this is finished I will start on Willow, which we got the pattern and kit for on the weekend.
This is the group of women who did the workshop. I got to know a few lovely ladies, who I hope to see again in the future. Thats not to say they all aren't lovely, I just didn't get to talk to too many of them!
But I did fit in some shopping which is a must at Patchwork Angel. They have such a huge range of fabric, patterns and notions that I barely scratched the surface!
Aren't my new playthings pretty?!
Be happy, Jess ;)
