Baa, baa, Black Sheep can I do it again? please!

Today was the day!

A group of us went to the Black Sheep in Culcheth.
There were five of us from 'elsewhere' and Barbara, who belongs to Black Sheep. The dream team consisted of Lucy, Diane, Jo, Ali, Barbara and myself. Each of us had selected some fabrics from the ranges at Black Sheep, and come up with a project to produce a finished item on the day, and the lovely folk at Black Sheep took photos, and made us extremely welcome and plan to blog about it, on their own blog.

Lucy, Ali and Jo
 strange that the phone has taken over from the camera...
 some of the gorgeous fabrics I was given to work with...
I made a bag- I always seem to make a bag!
Almost everything was provided that we could want, in the way of tea, coffee, biscuits and a very good lunch, and their workspace was lovely. They provided machines, and some cutting equipment, we just provided chat and womanpower! And in the afternoon, there was cake... did I resist? No, of course I did not resist- Lovely cake!

Di is working hard- I think she runs on one of those batteries which goes on and on... she never stopped! And she produced super baskets. You can just see one there in front of her, but she made loads of them!

Sorry, Barbara, I managed to miss you on the photo round, I managed to get everyone else..

The other side of my bag

and the pockets inside

We were there from about 10, until about 4, and we all made different things. I suggest you go and look at everyone else's blogs to see what they have done... but I think they are not quite ready yet... so have a look over the next few days!

Thank you Black Sheep! I had a fabulous day in super company!
If you get invited- take them up on it, they really know how to look after you!

and?? then just before we were leaving, in came Lesley with Goody bags! Coats had provided bags with lovely treats inside for us.

well chosen goods in those bags, Fabric , pins, a pen, a book with suggestions for things to make, and the pattern for the 'walkaway dress', and a tin containing a selection of threads.

You can just see a mini roll of 'Tim Holz' Eclectic Elements

 Useful colours

And these fabrics, a range I am unfamiliar with, and could not spot on the website.

I wonder, did we all get the same fabrics?  Perhaps I shall find out!

What an amazing day! It is great to come together and sew and chat and eat and sew and just have fun while making something. Love the goodie bag. You can keep the thread and I would love to have the tin *giggle* wondering if you make the dress? It looks stunning
