In September, I was tired from work and really just wanted to hang out with no pressure on me to complete anything. So, I packed a bag with a wallhanging to fiddle with intending not really to do very much but hang out with my BQS (Best Quilting Buddy).
On arrival in the car park, Yvonne, the teacher was leaning against her car wearing a jacket made of the boiled wool from the shop below the classes, Just Sew, which cloth has been highly popular with the class members. I myself bought three meters last year and have been diligently storing it ever since.
However when I saw her jacket I had to make one, so I bought more wool and set to. The delight of it is that it requires no finishing to speak of, perfect for a non dressmaker like me. By lunch time I had made this. So cuddly and easy to wear.
And then after lunch, set to making this one...it hangs much better in real life, the collar actually being eth same as the top one although the bottom is sqaured off rather than rounded. This one will in due course be embellished when I get around to the designing of it. And I still have the original 3 m of lime wool.....
