Sew much fun!

Lots of sewing happening here during the school holidays
 And also at Thread & Ginger Patchwork during the holidays
 Just goes to show that too much sewing is never enough
One day I had a class where the youngest was 7 yrs and the oldest 73 yrs. I think we had about 4 generations covered and the lovely thing was that everyone shared an instant bond - their enjoyment of sewing & fabric.

One of my young sewers (7 yrs)
piecing together a snake

I love the concentration

  This is her snake baby beside my 'Slithery Sally'
The pattern is available from Funky Friends Factory and is called Silly Scrap Snake
 Hang on .......its another snake....old blue eyes this time.
I think they're breeding in the basket of fabric scraps
Isn't this little quilt gorgeous. 
Miss E aged 7 yrs worked on this after school once a week for a whole term. When she said that she wanted to make this quilt I was worried about whether she would see it through to the end. So I simplified the elements as much as possible and she showed remarkable determination to follow it through to the finish. Congratulations.

A few more happy faces with their beautiful creative efforts

Lots more photos to come so keep checking the blog.
Bye for now & happy sewing. Linda
