Everyone in the class finished her project....... IN CLASS!!! This was a hand sewing course instructed by the adorable Carolanne Graham, at the Workroom. Over 4 sessions, we hand constructed an 18 inch pillow cover. This particular pattern is a Sawtooth Star Block.

The sewing Diva - Lindsay Stead, not only stayed up until the wee hours of the morning finishing her signature block, but also whipped up a strawberry shortcake treat for the entire class.

The finished works are as individual as the cast of "characters" who attended the class.

I was/am determined to use up a lot of my rather "vintage" fabrics. One can never have too many cushions!

Just goes to show that old dogs CAN learn new tricks!


  1. Congratulations on a beautiful job! Looks like a decorator's shop, all gathered together. A tasty reward, too, can't beat it.


  2. The shortcake looks yummy....the pillows are nice too...your quilting looks very good. A Plus all around.
