April 2019 (4), Gauchy, France "Au boulot"!

So this is my fourth and final blogpost about April, because when Pour l’Amour du Fil ended (click & click) the fun wasn’t over. 

With Emma (click) and Margaret (click) I traveled to Emma’s, which is little over an hour away from Paris. Always such a pleasure and fun to visit and this time also, as Margaret was giving her first workshop on her new Merrow Croft quilt.

I always love those few moments of quiet when we arrive early at Emma’s shop before everyone else does,  to get everything ready.

The ladies worked on the center of the Merrow Croft quilt, which is quite intricate, with a lot of round shapes coming together, not easy but so beautiful.
And I write ‘work’ for a reason, because everyone worked really hard and with both Margaret and me working on our French, the phrase “Au boulot!” (let’s work!) was often heard 😉

Work hard and play hard they say, apart from working hard there were lots of laughs and a great, creative atmosphere in the lovely, light space at Le Patchwork d’Emma.

With a two day workshop there is lots of time for demonstrations and explanations by a great teacher

After which the ladies are back ‘au boulot’ at the large tables....

....and I am back ‘au boulot’ at ‘my’ end of one of the tables, making sure no one is without the fabrics they want :-) 

Lucky for us, on the second day of the workshop Margaret showed us she had something special in her luggage…. a special guest: Rosa Biddlecombe!
Always a pleasure to see you, Rosa 😊 

For those of you who have not seen the backing of this quilt, a pretty fabric:-

And at the end of the two days there were great results! 
A few of the proud students and a proud teacher!

A kind and creative group of people, a great few days at Emma’s shop/atelier/boutique and the French country side, lovely memories.

This is my final post on the busy month of April, thank you for visiting my blog and sort of ‘travelling with me’, hope to meet you again here next time!
