I have since bought better clamps. Unfortunately the ones in the photo were too shallow to hold on to the table tightly. DH will get these for his workroom, so he's not complaining.
Our February meeting of The Sunday Stitchers saw us and friends having a workshop with the lovely Natalie Bird.
It was a very enjoyable day. There was 'Show & Tell' of things made from Natalie's patterns. We were very well fed. No photos of the food...too busy eating it.
I am pleased with how I have been getting through my heavy list of must-dos for this year. Everything is on schedule. Actually that is bit of a surprise to me. Just goes to show, I can achieve things if I focus.
Now I know I am not an arty quilter! I have submitted my entry form and will be very surprised if I get asked to send it down. It was just something I really wanted to have a go at. More time and a bit more care would have made a better effort. There was no time for unpicking or finding a better/correct printer. I figure the photos won't fade for a couple of years.
I used copies of the photos my Grandparents swapped when Grandad went off to WW1 and two of the postcards he sent back. I tried to mimic his handwriting and the greetings he used on the cards.
I was a tail end grandchild and therefore knew only the old man. These postcards give an insight to the 20 year who love his girlfriend (later wife).
GDITC next week. Yeah!
