One of the benefits of working from home is that often I can take opportunities when they arrive. Today was one of those days. I thought I would get stuck into some sewing when three ladies turned up to the shop and asked if they could take part in a class. I was a bit puzzled because they had said during initial chatter that they fly out of Christchurch tomorrow. They wanted me to teach a class now! Well, what was I to do, and what could I teach that would be a starter project for them? One of the ladies picked up a cushion from the sofa and the others agreed that, that was what they wanted to learn how to do – crazy patchwork, no less.
So that is exactly what we did for four hours. I started them off, then while they were busy with ribbons and beads I frantically printed off stitch sheets for them. They were thrilled, especially when I told them about including a cobweb in each piece. Each joking about the natural ones that will be waiting for them when they got back to Holland after being on holiday for 3 weeks.
Taking a class on Boxing Day just didn’t feature in my plans for today, but what an awesome day it turned out to be. Much better than the quiet day I was expecting, and three new friends from a far off land :) Thank you ladies, I hope we can do it again sometime.
I hope your day was as full of fun as mine was, or are you all still in ‘recovery’ mode after a hectic Christmas Day?
