A day with Brigitte

Yesterday I was fortunate enough to spend a day with Sydney based designer & teacher Brigitte Giblin at Southern Cross Needlework. I had had my name on the waiting list for some time and sadly (for them!) someone had to pull out. It was a great day, Brigitte was generous with her time & inspirations...sharing patterns & offering guidance. Most ladies have been working on her designs for a while...
loads of lovely 1/2" hexies...
a new design...
amazing fussy cutting...
reproduction inspirations...
and more!
I have started playing with a 30's palette...having fun at present!
