Our time in Nundle and on the road trip was not all play and no work!!!! Our tutor for GDITC was Sue Daly. She does the most beautiful and inspiring paper piecing. I was not confident that this was something I could master but I was pleasantly surprised. There were 2 projects for the day. The first which I started was a clam shell hussif. I have admired clam shells for a long time but would never of attempted them so was very happy to learn a method of doing them. I only got a few rows completed (there was socialising to do as well) but will continue and can imagine using this technique on many future projects. Tracey was the high achiever on our table, not only did she complete the required number of rows but began another one in the car on the way home!!!
Before the day we were set a challenge of a paper pieced pin cushion. I received the apple cores and struggled to even begin it! I made it at Chookyblues with much assistance from the other girls. I did not put it into the swap, although I will enjoy using it there was no way it was at a standard I could let anyone else have it!!! I will not ever be making another one!!!!
