Off to Debden House on Monday morning - Mummy can I come to please!!!!
I put the pile of fabrics on my last blog and this is how it is coming along - please ignore the yellow stickers!
Because I decided once it was going together I wanted a King Size quilt in Raising the Barn style log cabin - I had to stop at this point and come back to the shop to buy some more material so once it is finished I shall post again with the completed top - it is going to look magnificant even if I say so myself!!!
A couple of pictures of some of the other folks work - there are loads more everyone had a fabulous four days it was great fun - Anne Stacey as always made it such a good summer school.
This is Debden House set in Epping Forest it is a fabulous old property - once a working farm owned by a gentleman farmer - who had other interests in the area and the workroom where we were sewing was originally the Coachhouses. We were shown a book from 1997 giving the history and it was fascinating - then Mavis Mary & I went for a walk into the forest - totally and utterly inadequate footwear for all of us - and came back past some other period properties which were also mentioned in the history book - One called the Mount was were race horses were raised in many many years past and boy is it fabulous and the stabl block has all been beautifully converted as well.
The walk in the forest (although I hasten to add only a shortish walk) was lovely, it was so green and fresh as it was just after the most fabulous thunder storm.
We managed to get back to the workroom before the heavens opened!!
So roll on December when we go back for the Christmas weekend!!!!
