On Thursday I went to the Perth Craft and Quilting Fair at the Perth Convention Centre where I dad a 1hr "Make N Take" session making Boro (Japanese patchwork mending technique) coasters run by Bebe Bold (www.bebebold.com.au). It is a beautiful and easy technique used to mend or make clothing, quilts, etc.
I've finally finished stitching my first coaster, after many distractions from the kids, and just 2 more to go until I've made the set. This one I've probably done the stitching too close as it draws away from the patterns on the fabric so I'll likely take this one apart and start again, but still I'm proud of my first attempt! Thank you so much to you lovely ladies @bebeboldau for introducing me to such a beautiful technique!
