Look at this lovely village! I wish I could claim this as my own, but alas it was made by my friend Mrs. Ochiai. I showed a picture of her hard at work on it last Friday and this is the end result! Isn't that fantastic?! As I say, these aren't very difficult but even so I think her first attempt is way beyond our expectations!
Mrs. Ochiai got her village cut and placed and sandwiched at my house and then she went home to do the quilting. She said it took her two days to do this. What a great idea! Look at all the houses she put in the border! I've got to try this! (Which means I'll be making another village...)
Mrs. Ochiai occasionally comes to my house either to teach me things on the computer (or fix whatever I've managed to mess up in the computer) or to sew together. She loves Choco but isn't very fond of my cats (they love her!) The last time Mrs. Ochiai visited we spent most of the day looking at websites and blogs and I showed her things I had discovered and new techniques etc. She was especially impressed by the quilting that can be done on the sewing machine and so she went home to practice on her domestic machine. I'd say her practice paid off if she can do all this lovely quilting on her village!
