Gone to Pieces Summer Social 3rd August

Members had a lovely afternoon out, to neighbouring Winchmore Hill Village Hall, for an afternoon of strawberries and cream; scones, jam and cream; a selection of lovely cakes, oh yes, and some sewing as well.  Jenni Last showed us how to develop basic Folded Japanese patchwork into more advanced shapes, with lots of examples and ideas.  It was nice to sit with different people and chat socially where we usually have a busy programme at our meetings.  For fun, our chairman had set the annual Limerick first line as, The great thing with needle and thread.  The members voted for Jacqui Jones' verse - which might not have scanned as well as some but was voted most popular - and went:  

The great thing with needle and thread,

Intricate hand-quilting our bedspread

But I have a notion

When he suggested free-motion

My husband meant something else instead!
