Bits and pieces

Lots of activity at C&B Towers but not much blog posting. Chris has been teaching lots of classes at The Corner Patch (and keeps forgetting to file pictures to share), and also starting to gather up the mountain of stuff needed for our space at the Uttoxeter quilt show, which is only a couple of weeks away ( thanks to Maggi for pointing out our diary blooper in the original version of this post!).
Barbara has been zipping up and down various motorways putting serious miles on the clock again so we can only show you a glimpse or two of what is going on behind the scenes. Most of the preparation is done for our Mystery Day in May

and we’ve decided that this time, breaking with tradition, we will send out cutting instructions before the day. This should free up more time on the day for the pedal-to-the-metal sewing part…. and eating cake!
One class at The Corner Patch where pictures were remembered just in time was Antique Rose Star. Jane had prepared fabulous kits for all (72 pieces per kit!) so no cutting needed, just deciding on arrangement before starting to stitch –

There have been lots of mutterings about clamshells –

A number of trips to the trusty local printing service-

Small quantities of fabric have been acquired

Another busy week beckons, but we understand that time off for gardening might be permissible, so we may indulge in a little light weeding over the weekend…..

  1. Really looking forward to the mystery day, although I haven’t finished the mystery from last year as yet! I see that you are going to set us some homework prior to the day in the form of cutting up fabric. Will these instructions come out in the post i.e. through the front door, or via a post here?
