In this huge classroom and plenty of table space,

everyone has lots of space to spread out without being cramped.

Along with the fun and laughter, lots of new techniques were learnt

and soon 3D petals and flowers started to appear.

Camellia Blooms!


Just a short post today,

I wanted to share these stunning camellia flowers

that were gifted to me yesterday from a friend.

Stunningly beautiful large double flowers,

so heavy the stems can hardly hold them up.

One flower fell off in the car coming home,

it fits perfectly in this vintage glass bowl.

Feeling totally spoilt.

Today being rainy/sunny and struggling to reach double figures for much of the day,


Weather Station 13-7-16


is the perfect day to be inside by the fire stitching the binding.

(A chilly 3·7°c outside & a comfortable 18·7°c inside.)

Kits will be available from The Patchwork Tea House,

from either their website or one of the many shows they will be visiting over the next few months.
