Project Purchases

Not much sewing this week as I've been working extra hours, but I did manage to get some time to shop!

I've started teaching a new class at a local school.  It's their 50th anniversary and they want a wall hanging.   I've got an afters school class of 14 parents and at least that many school age children, plus a few pre-school children (exhausting!)

At the first session last week they decided to base it on this carved plaque

They want to have 50 leaves, each one embroidered with a suitable word (friendship, honesty, environment, that sort of thing) and add owls - one for each head teacher.

So you understand I *had* to shop!

I reckoned that cutting lengths off the embroidery silks at the class was asking for trouble, so I spent ages tonight cutting thread into 1m lengths and storing it on card, and trying not to get knotted!

We'll find out tomorrow if the plan worked!


  1. That's going to be an exciting project! I like the way you're preparing it all in advance :)

  2. Just a small project then... :oD

  3. Always good to be prepared! Lovely project!

  4. Sounds like a bit of challenge - but I'm sure that it will all work out splendidly with you at the helm! x

  5. Big, and exciting project! I love all the different shades of green. It will look great. xxx
