It’s the first of August, summer, the promise of long, hot days relaxing in the garden – ok maybe not but I can dream!
It is definitely time for Lily’s Quilts Fresh Sewing Day though.
I have no idea where July went, it seemed to zoom by in days of rain and exhausted children, but I do believe there was some sewing too and the sun did start to shine.
Most if not all of it was great fun, commissions, a pattern review, birthday and end of school year gifts and a sample for a quilt kit:
I also ran my first proper workshop/class, I’ve done informal sewing evenings before for charity, but this was proper paid work! It was a purse frame workshop held at Arrietty a wonderful new shop in Exeter that is running a number of sewing and non sewing workshops including a ukulele workshop! I really enjoyed doing it and all 6 students made gorgeous purses.
It’s the school summer holidays here now so it will be interesting to see if I have anything to show next month!
Go on over and check out what others have been sewing this month.
