College Weekend

This weekend I have been on my City & Guilds course at Skipton. I missed last month because we were on holiday so it has been lovely to see everyone again.
Saturday was a special day as it was Mary's 50th Birthday and we went out to lunch. This photos shows my 5 patchwork colleagues and Eileen who is an embroidery C&G student. Mary is the one with the badge!
This is the project that Mary has been working on this weekend - a miniature tumbling blocks quilt. That girl certainly has patience!
I am pleased to report that I have finished my 3rd piece (out of 5) I need to finish before the end of June. This was my quilted sewing machine cover on the theme of chickens. I don't have any photos to share as my tutor has taken it home for assessment but I did take photos of these cute paper applique chickens I put on the front of my display box.

I think I may do more paper applique!
