Ruffler Foot

I have had an afternoon using my ruffler foot for the first time, I made this cushion, the picture is of an old gardening leaflet for Scotts Seeds I printed it onto white cotton and used it for a centre panel I am really pleased with the result.
Kathleen and I had a good day yesterday we went to Weedon in Northampton to one of the most popular quilters shops, we had a good look around and bought some fabrics, there were some really lovely Tilda fabrics and Kathleen has a yen to do some prim work and so bought the appropriate fabric. We decided to go a different way home and found a lovely craft centre wih lots of different shops and a nice restaurant so we had lunch there, the sun shone all day and we had a good journey home. I forgot to say we booked a class to make a lovely cushion called Summer Street, the class is in March but we are going back before then to the SALE.

A Lovely Day

Hello Everyone, What a lovely day it is here in Leicestershire England the sun is shining and everything looks much better. It was Cottonreels birthday last Sunday I popped round to see her and she opened her parcels, she heard from all of her family and had a nice day. I am hoping to take her to Bramble Patch (Quilting Mecca) tomorrow and we will probably have lunch somewhere nice. I am going to try some crazy
patchwork, I love it, I would like to learn a lot more of the embroidery stitches some of them are quite beautiful I have bought a book and it is very good and explains things very clearly, it's nice to try a new craft. It is a quiet time of year and not one I particulary enjoy, I always think January and February are quite hard to get through I love it when March arrives and we start to see the spring flowers. I am not moaning though, when you see what is happening in other parts of the world we are very lucky to live in a country which does not have extreme weather, uprisings, wars or dictatorships for which I am very thankful. Happy Day.
