After all that effort putting in the fence I spent the afternoon pottering in the sewing room sewing Clue 5 in the Stitch and Frame Shops Mystery Quilt.
I must be the most unimaginative person around cause truly I haven’t tried to work out how all these blocks go together. Considering how many different ways a quilt block can be laid out – I simply can’t be bothered scratching my head and pummeling the brain to try and work it out. All will be revealed no doubt in time.
You can find Clue 5 here.
Elise came home from watching her friend Belinda compete in the Fire Brigade Trials to work on the bag she needed for Creative Crafts – where wait for it – the students actually sew and no she didn’t make this bag – it just needed to be decorated.
Well at least the students would sew if there were more than five sewing machines for a class of 22 students. I kid you not. Somehow Elise’s teacher knows me – but I don’t know from where – and she also knows I sew and as a consequence has told Elise she can do all her sewing at home. Both Elise and I love that idea for several reasons…..
- I know she will have to use a sewing machine and use it efficiently.
- I know that anything she does make that isn’t up to “standard” she will be made to unpick and resew. Harsh I know – but I also know Elise has the skills and capabilities to do a very high level of work.
- Elise would much rather use all the resourses available in my sewing room than the rather limited resourses in a High School sewing class.
- Elise is enjoying this class – immensely.
