Very exciting - I'm off to Norfolk for the weekend and will be attending a sashiko workshop with Jenni Dobson at the Quilters' Guild regional day on Saturday. Jenni's also agreed to come to Dayspringers in North Walsham to do a mini workshop at the monthly meeting on Friday. Not too sure what to expect, I've got a requirements list but no picture of what we'll be making so it'll be a surprise, a good one I hope. I'll put a photo of what I end up doing on here next week. I've never done any sashiko before, just hoping my hand stitching is up to the challenge!
It is a beautiful, sunny, autumn day here in Lincolnshire, the trees are glorious in their autumn colours, I really must get out with the camera before it rains and the wind blows and it all turns to a slippery mess.
Fans of Jennifer Chaverini's Elm Creek Quilts books may like to look at Quilt magazine's website where you can download a free pattern for an Underneath the Stars quilt to tie in with Jennifer's new book which is due out on 3 November.
