Busy busy busy


So here is the finished item I was teasing you wit on one of my previous posts. It was a cushion I made for a friend for her birthday. She was really please with it.
I've also spent the last 2 days at the Bramble Patch with Sheena Norquay - and here are the results from the end of day one:
We started by using an array of items to print with on my dyed fabric. We used lids, corks, screws, cotton reels and cotton buds. I promise to post the results when I've finished it. I've also managed to  master the use of metallic thread - I had a bit of an issue with it and have been rather nervous about using it.  But I can only say I can free motion quilt with metallic thread. Yay.
And I'll be off to Bramble Patch again on Saturday for another lovely day with Bren.
Hope you're all enjoying the sunshine.

Lovely gift for your friend Sarah. I'd be interested in knowing which courses you would recommend at The Bramble Patch - they all sound intriguing - I can never decide which interests me the most.
