April news

We’ve changed all the clocks and moved forward an hour but, in the UK, we don’t appear to have changed the winter weather.  Chris has been marooned in the Executive Suite at C&B Towers watching the rain, cold and wind sweep over the surrounding park grounds and Barbara has got so cheesed off with snow rain and cold that she has packed up and left for the Overseas Office where everything is a little brighter and considerably warmer. . .

Tucked away out of sight at the Overseas Office are many project bags, plus books, fabric and other sewing basics (chocolate and caffeine perhaps? – Chris).  In fact the Overseas Office will soon be as well stocked as the Rural Office and C&B Towers, we just need to persuade the staff there to sit down and actually use it and make stuff/finish up some of those projects…

Lots of stitching in store for both of us this month as we make samples and storyboards for our Chris&Barbara day at The Corner Patch retreat – Chris started on one of her class samples and suddenly found herself finishing up a quilt top that wasn’t on the list (as you do).  Barbara has fabric to starch, press and cut into a small stack of 10inch squares before she can start her share of the samples and then a whole new Layer Cake can be opened and used.  And rumour has it that a certain Singer Featherweight might be taken out of it’s box and put to work alongside Chris’s trusty vintage Singer machine.

We’ve refreshed the Doodle page so do click over and take a look at this month’s offering and to download a free colouring sheet (if Barbara has managed to conquer some of the “issues” with Links – Chris thinks it might just be an ageing brain, but the link is now added). EQ Doodle April

Happy sewing!!
