Learn to sew and what better way than this simple technique of chicken scratch embroidery. A beautiful embellishment on gingham which can be framed or applied to other household items.
It is October and it’s Northern Ireland but on the whole I felt the weather was good. It wasn’t particularly cold and just a drizzle of rain.
I taught four ladies once a month for eight months basic patchwork blocks. These ladies were familiar with machine sewing but not with piecing patchwork. It was a fun time together and they learned so much. The last evening we did the churn dash block and they showed off all their other blocks. Some had went beyond the block making some beautiful items.
They very kindly presented Smudge and I with gifts, after all Smudge never missed a class either.

October was very interesting with Judith Hollies as our guest speaker and teacher. She gave a very interesting talk on how she came to be where she is today regarding textiles and the effect on all aspects of her life. She even traced the benefits from her ancestors in 1900.
The afternoon was great fun as we made our robin cushions.
