Another week has flown by, and the highlight was an evening with the Academy quilters in Grantham where good old Frankie was demonstrating right angled triangles and all their doings to some of our newer members, she brought along a lovely quilt  with really small triangles to show us and also an older quilt that she made for a commission for the women's realm magazine many years ago, the remit was that it had to be suitable for a total beginner and quick to make and no small complicated piecing !!!!

women's realm special

I arrived late as usual, in time for the sausage rolls and chocolate fingers,  yes I know, I will diet tomorrow[maybe] in between stuffing our faces with delicious post Christmas nosh we had a bit of a show and tell, there were some lovely cot bumpers and wallhangings for identical twins due very soon and lorraine appleton had a wonder full piece ready for her next exhibition and julie, well,     I was blown away, I always read her blog hhereere, but in the flesh WOW the small piece shes done for A.Q.L.S. was sooooo scrumptious      she is a marvelous artist with a great eye for colour and  we are very lucky to have her in our group.
Isn't this great!  half the size of a normal machine and only fifty squid!made by john lewis perfect for classes and PURPLE!!!!!!!


  1. Does the purple sewing machine do many embriodery stitches ?,isnt it great purple, why hasnt anyone thought of a coloured machine before? what fun, and a good price too , Jan xx

  2. I am blushing here Tina! I hope nobody from ALQS looks in here tho;-) If that is your ALQS quilt in the jungle in your other post I will have it on my list! x

  3. Fabulous little machine... I agree, they should come in many colours though I would have chosen purple too. I too would be interested to know what its stitch range is.

  4. Sounds like a great group! Sausage rolls and chocolate fingers sound yummy.


I get very excited when I get a comment. So do please send me a comment, thankyou.
