It was not good the thread was wrong

by Emily Dickinson

The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.

The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned
I'll put a trinket on.

Vlak voor mijn vakantie werd ik door Marja van het Quitltkabinet gevraagd of ik weer een workshop wou geven dit seizoen .
De vorige workshop was best wel een succes dus ik heb er wel weer zin in .
Om dit nog beter voor te bereiden heb ik een klein boekje gemaakt met voorbeelden van de verwerking van Tyvek , want dat was ik al van plan .
Dit boekje breng ik naar het Quilt kabinet dan kunnen belangstellende cursisten een beetje een idee krijgen wat deze workshop ongeveer te bieden heeft .
Het was best wel veel werk maar wel heel leuk om te doen .
Er zijn 2 datums gepland en er zijn nu al inschrijvingen goed toch ..

Woensdag 04-11-09
Woensdag 20-01-10

je kunt je opgeven bij het quiltkabinet .
Hopelijk tot ziens

A little book I made for a workshop I wil give about Tyvek ,You can come if you like .
It is in a very lovely quilt shop in a very beautiful place in Friesland
See you in the Quiltkabinet
