A quick post...

***Not sure what happened here: this should have posted a week ago - instead showing 22nd April! ... better late than never!***

Chertsey Museum's Fun with fabric went really well.. Six ladies again, three from last month, and three new.

Jenny had finished her felt applique, so we framed that, but Barbara and Jackie didn't bring theirs back.

The denim bags went well, and only I got burnt by the glue gun!!!

I didn't get photos of Jackie's and Avril's bags.  They didn't get them finished, but are happy to carry on at home

Barbara went off at a complete tangent, and made this great bag from the left overs that we'd torn strips from.  She lined it with one of the bags I'd made as skeletons.  She cut slits in the back and front and threaded narrow strips through and tied then!

Nicola stuck to the darker denim and got loads done on her bag












And Anne tried lots of different arrangements, but decided she wanted to just use the stripes, not the weaving.
Jenny also made good progress, but no photo!  For a number of the ladies this was their first time with a glue gun - I think they'll be off to get one now, and Avril has one, but has never used it she says she will now!

They want to try English Piecing next - hexagons for a pin cushion, or pentagons for a baby's ball, and then they fancy smocking (gulp) so I'm going to have a practice to see how easy that is by hand!!!
