A look at last week

This last week has flown by. I was over at Tudor Rose Patchwork near Bedford for my usual patchwork class on Wednesday. I haven’t seen many of my students since March and it was lovely to be back, seeing everyone and catching up.

It also gave me the opportunity to collect the fabric I ordered for a competition to launch my new IGTV channel. The beginning of the week was spent producing patchwork basics videos for both YouTube and IGTV. More about all of this in a separate post.

Thursday was the patchwork bag online course. It was a very relaxing day of hand stitching -although the technique can be done by machine. The online classes give me the opportunity to meet people from all around the country. It is lovely to hear their stitching stories and learn about the projects they have been doing during this very strange year.

Any spare time I have had was spent finishing my Christmas quilt. This is made from all the sample blocks I have made over the last couple of years, teaching and demonstrating the folded log cabin technique. It is really time for this one to be finished and to come off the design wall. Do you have any projects which need completing?

Looking forward to next week I will be at Tudor Rose Patchwork again on Wednesday ( unless the new lockdown is brought forward). More fabric has arrived and needs to be prepared for the Cushions for Christmas course, and any spare time will be used to edit patchwork basics videos. Luckily the weather is not too good at the moment so I am not too tempted to spend hours on my allotment

Hope you have had a good week – Bev
