I have had a couple of lovely starts to August. First it was my birthday and I was spoilt by family and friends with some special little gifts that suited me perfectly. Leanne also sent me a gorgeous birthday gift, the table runner above and the Lilac Hill charm pack. The table runner is just beautiful and the colours are perfect for my dining room. Thanks so much Leanne, I love my gift!
The other lovely thing was to attend a Lynette Anderson workshop yesterday at Grandmothers Garden in Gordonton which is just outside the city I live in. I had to get a photo of myself and Lynette as proof, she is holding a little stocking I made from her latest book, Stitch it for Christmas. This was the first sewing/quilting workshop I had been to and I totally enjoyed the day. Lynette was a lovely tutor, very warm, friendly and helpful. The workshop pattern was the Badger Cottage journal cover and pencil case, you can see how far I got in the photo above. We also practised making tiny yoyo's and hexagons ... I have lots more to make! I have always loved the look of Lynette's projects but they are definitely more beautiful in real life, it was very inspiring to see some of them. Lucky me, Wendy xx
