I had the dose of flu last week - that meant I could not go up the mountain and teach the lovely ladies in Maleny.....................but it did give me the opportunity to get into my sewing room..........
While tidying up I came across some of my work, and came to the conclusion.....
that sometimes "less" is enough. I don't think we have to "pack" too many stitches in crazy for it be crazy.
I use masking tape to mark the students "homework" on their projects - it works well as it does not damage the fabric and stays stuck for as long as you need it. This is Gwen's work - the seam treatment is found in my book on page 38 E1-E4.
This is more of Gwen's work ........
............... and some more ..............all these stitch combinations are also found in my book.
Now for Bettye's work - it is looking quite wonderful - when Bettye first came to my classes she was VERY opposed to BIG stitches - I am pleased to say that I wore her down and know she loves them!!!
One of the nice things about teaching so many classes is that I get to see lots of quilts and things - this quilt belongs to Gail who comes to two of my classes at the www.patchworkangel.com.au
This gorgeous vintage Singer is on display at the Patchwork Angel at the moment - and I want it!!!!
Jenny form my Maleny class had a great storage idea for her beads - a weekly medical dosage container ! Brilliant!
Till next class!
