thinking out loud

pillow talk swap - front

If I did a small, intimate workshop from my house (near Wakefield, West Yorks) for a few people for something like a dresden plate pillow, or maybe english paper pieced hexagons, or the tumbler pillow I made recently, would anyone be interested?

charm pack pillow

Thinking out loud, there'd be tea on tap, lunch, probably cake, definitely biscuits, and all the bits and bobs you'd need to make a pretty, scrappy pillow in a day. Plus me to witter on at you, my 2 fat cats and my somewhat crazy puppy.

It's just a thought, but it might be fun?

yes! I will never learn to quilt without someone standing over me. Plus if I get to play with the puppy then I will be happy. :o)

I would SO be interested, I'm just a bit too far away. :) Your tumbler pillow is fantastic, by the way.

Jackie said...

They are so wonderful! That would be fabulous if I lived closer.

I would definitely be interested (actually would be delighted!), it's just that there's a bit of water between our houses which makes it hard for me to attend! :(

Caroline said...

Ohhh I wish I lived near Wakefield too :(

That sounds like a lovely afternoon, especially the fat cats,puppy, cake and biscuits. Oh yeah, and the sewing!

Mary said...

Would you take folks from across the pond? hee hee....nothing would be more fun!

rderrett said...

I would dearly love to come round. I don't think Phoebe would be invited as she likes to scare cats. It is a very long journey for me though so I'd need an overnight stay or two....

Nicky said...

Wakefield is not over the water but way up North for me for an afternoon visit - would like to though as i'm sure it would be fun...

Judith said...

I would love to but Wakefield is a bit far up north for a London girl for an afternoon....what a bummer.

Ruth said...

Yes. Yes. And....yes! As long as it was on a day I'm not already busy then I'm in. Sign me up!

trash said...

Me! Me! Me!

Sarah said...

Oh I'd love that so much! Too far away for me though :-(

Dorothee said...

Sounds like great fun, shame it's too far for me!

two hippos said...

sounds wonderful! Quiet a way to travel form London, but if there was a good b & b locally..

It's a bit of a hike from Philadelphia, so I must send regrets. But it's a stellar idea.

Please move nearer - or do a travelling workshop!!

Merran said...

does the workshop fee include a flight from Australia?

Valerie said...

Really wishing I lived in England right about now...

Sadie said...

I'm interested :-) possibly :-)
I'm in south west scotland so it would require an overnight but definatly do-able

tattiekite said...

Definitely interested - I'm only on the County Durham/North Yorkshire border so only an 90 minute or so drive.

Patti said...

Would have really loved to but I think Wakefield is a bit too far to come for an afternoon. Sorry 

jodie said...

I'd have to make sure my passport is up to date...maybe you could just come to my house?

See Spot Shop said...

All that and a puppy, too? I would be beside myself with joy. Too bad I'm on the wrong continent. I'm so jealous of the lucky people who wold get to go.

Angie said...

It would be such a lovely, fun, summery thing to do!! Oh how I wish I lived near you...

Wendz said...

[squeal] Google says we're only 14 miles and 30 minutes apart! Provided I'm not on a shift that day I'd love to join in ... have never done a dresden plate like yours :)

Jopsy said...

i'm in devon; but it sounds fab!

Lotti said...

I'm in Suffolk, too far which is such a shame as it sounds like loads of fun

Betty said...

If you start in September I'll be in the UK:
week 1 in North Yorkshire
week 2 in the Lakedistrict (in a Yurt!)

Kerry said...

I'd go out of my way to - well I'd come over from Manchester!

Andi said...

Melbourne is not to far to commute is it? I'm SURE I could make it. What's for lunch?
xx

kait. said...

Oh man, I wish. That sounds like a ridiculous amount of fun.

Cass said...

That sounds like fun if only I wasn't so far away. Perhaps you could come over here and do one!

lu summers said...

come back and LIVE IN SUFFOLK, i demand it of you. *stamps feet*

elsy said...

would love to.....would make it an overstay in a b&b somewhere...

Eli said...

That sounds like lots of fun. I love cats! Oh, am I supposed to sew as well as stroke the cats? Lovely...my two favourite pass-times.

I'd come from Bingley x

3 weeks too late :(
I was in Cumbria & would have swapped Beatrix Potter for tea with Katy no risk !

Amy Gibson said...

I'm getting on a plane now...see you in 10 hrs. Hehe. If that dresden pillow were any cuter it might lick my cheek.

shivani said...

I would love to, but it's just a little too far from me (tea, cake, quilting and puppy - almost impossible to resist!).

how about a dresden-plate-cushion sew along instead? x

Leah said...

I'm a definate - after we relocate to Beverley!

lily boot said...
