skill builder series of blocks is over. Finished. Stopped. I am both sad to see them gone, and relieved to have the series over. This butterfly is the last of the series, and included curves, and Y seams, so not the easiest block of them all, but a very pretty result.
I spent the weekend away, with a very dear friend, helping her at a fundraiser craft stall, in aid of her son's school. First she said she had very little stuff to sell, and when we got there she had two tables to fill. We quickly realised that three tables at least were required, and borrowed another table, but still didn't manage to put everything out. Most of the stuff was made either by her son, or by his schoolmates. All of them have some degree of learning disability, and some of them have significant motor problems too. I was very impressed by the generosity of the buyers, and we raised more than I would have expected!
I came home again on Sunday evening, just in time to eat with my daughter, and organise myself to be able to go to work on Monday! A lovely weekend of sewing, chatting and selling the goods. Nothing beats time spent with good friends and family!
Now I have to go and redevelop some frame purse ideas! Don't hold your breath!
