Over at the Rural Office internet connectivity has been a fragile fleeting thing – sometimes there, most times not. So battling against the odds, here’s our report on the String Quartet class last Saturday. Everyone seemed to have a really good time (with the possible exception of Chris who was doing sterling duty supplying vital teas and coffees). Usually we begin classes with a demo and instructions, this time we dived right in to sewing and stitching little bits of fabric together to make Friendship Star blocks. Everyone made at least one of these blocks and we rather think that the random piecing technique may prove a popular option – we even had a few mutterings about “good thing to do for a Linus day” “think I’ll do this again” etc etc. The first few finished blocks are below –
After the Friendship Star blocks we moved on to a quick demo of piecing strips and strings of fabric down onto a paper shape and worksheets were handed out. Chris’s Monster Scrap Bag made a guest appearance and was carefully picked through as the day progressed – it really was somewhat reduced by the end of class!
So, well done everyone! Our next Saturday class – Double Delight – is in September. We’ve got a lot of 2016 planning to do in the summer break and maybe a little more beautifying of the grounds of C&B Towers.
