Selling Stash and Sewing – Bliss!

1 Feb

During the last month some of the GQ members have been busy having a fabric clear out and for those who hadn’t been so industrious they were in the fortunate position that they could buy even more fabric to add to the existing mountains that they have at home!

Once the sales had been exhausted everyone settled down to work – or to chat – as the case maybe.


There are some wonderful projects in progress. The original plan for this piece of work was that it would be a rug – but realising that it was far too good to be tramped on it will now hang on the wall when it is finished.

Fran is continuing to make her book – and as ever it is beautiful.

And, what a jolly children’s quilt!
