Super work class with Sue
Daley of Busyfinges,
beautiful fabrics,pre-cut
papers,templates,lovely show
and tell,then ending up with
an interesting lecture from
Sue.The whole day was perfect!
Sue was invited by Kathrine at
Laughs and deeply concentration
was part of the whole day.
This is probably what I looked
like coming home
after 11 1/2 hours:-)

About 35 quilters attended the work class,and approx 65
listened to Sue during the evening. Many quilters
had brought their own hand sewn quilts,an unique lot of
sewing to see. Please check  http://abyquilt.blogspot.com/
May Britt  has taken some super pictures!!
I love attending quilt classes,always lots to learn.
Sue was very enthusiastic and patient with us all,
great teacher for sure:-)

I would to do the Faith,Hope and Love Quilt,a small version
of it might be a start for me on hand sewing,using a longer needle
and a very thin thread! I`m ready:)))
Yesterday I had a good start.

Here is a close up look of Sue`s middle part of the quilt.
Yes,that`s the part I might sew one of these days .....

Looking forward to Easter time. This year we are in for an at-home-
holiday,planning on day trips only.
Have a nice weekend my blog friends :-)

How wonderful for you to get to take a class with Sue. Isn't she wonderful? I had the chance to meet and talk with her a bit last November. She is a very nice lady.

Så interessant. Vi lærer hele tiden, og du blir aldri opprådd for prosjekter. Gleder meg til å se det i virkeligheten.
