I have managed some exceedingly funny sewing last weekend with some lovely ladies! Thank you Mrs Scruffy Badger for a wonderful day of knicker making! Thank you to all the lovely ladies I met, I'm sorry I wasn't great company at one point, I'm a dunce for not putting tablets in every bag! And so to my pretty pair of knickers:

I'm really impressed with myself that I put elastic in, I'd never done it before but can see lots of knickers in my future! Never have there been so many innuendos about gussets! I can highly recommend The Makery in Bath and will be popping back to do another class as soon as I can make my mind up between free motion embroidery and clutch purse making, I'm also drawn towards the lampshade making course! I'm so indecisive! They're all so good!
My other bit of sewing news is that the sewing class I go to has started up again and this semester we're doing patchwork and appliqué. We're starting with a simple seven piece hexagon pattern using the English paper piecing method. Our homework was only to make our pattern pieces from card and then cut out seven paper pieces but I kind of got carried away...

So I think I know what I'm going to be doing on the long winter nights to come! Haha!
So what sewing are you up to?
