Stuffed Full to Bursting - Comic Relief Crafternoon.

This deliciously ample pin cushion seen today at The Workroom pretty much sums up this week in The Workroom!

Stuffed Full To Bursting!

This week we have been over flowing with new fabric.

Some great prints for boys........

Fruity prints so zingy and springy with classic ginghams.

Gorgeous soft florals.

I'm a bit obsessed with this teal and grey combo - so modern 

The sun has been shining, our bulbs are bursting with lovely spring promise...

The Workroom is just buzzing with new! new!! new!!! Check out our classes list for lots of new classes being added all the time...

I've been on a bit of a knitting run since the Retreat Day, knitting a little overdress for my daughters felt Bunny.

It's knitted in the round on a wire with a swap to double pointed needles to knit the little bunny-sleeves...adorable. I cast off the second sleeve this morning at Therapy Thursday and it's been blocking in the sunny window 

Bunny loves her new dress...

Claire has taught two  completely jam packed Free Motion Embroidery classes this week. Its been brimming with fun, friendship and free motion freedom! The Workroom has been standing room only  as these ladies took to free motion sewing like ducks to water under Claire's gentle encouragement and surrounded by fabulous inspirational examples of Claire's individual work.

What I love about this class is that it sets the participants free to create completely individual sewing art. There are no clichéd cupcakes here, just 100% personal pieces of sewing. I love it! 

Today was Therapy Thursday and we were treated to this amazing finish.....EPP, a mixture of Workroom prints and treasured Liberty squares appliquéd to a map print background ( still a few metres in stock) that includes the village where the lucky recipient of this amazing gift grew up. A modern heirloom - it's stunning. x
