The wrong day and a felted toadstool...........

So there I was, all packed and ready to teach my "crazy tea cosy" at the Patchwork Angel. I was nice and early and organised .............................but I had the wrong day................... I was a MONTH early!!!!


 I discovered these cute, cute, cute felted pincushions at the Angel - and, no, I did not need another pincushion ......................but I still came home with two!! Although, one was a surprise gift for someone...............


...........................its' a lovely cool day today so I can enjoy working on this new project!

Crazy Quilting - CACA - Suz

So looking forward to posting Suz's work.................


Great fabric choice - both in colour and texture........


Not to mention Suz's seam treatments...............


............the unexpected stitch combinations.............


...............her work was not complete at the end of the workshop - her life got in the way - family weddings etc.............


.................I so appreciate the exuberance of her work........... 


..................and the surprise element - this star button is a prime example............


Well done, Suz - quite wonderful !!.
 I think I see elements of my book "Fool Proof Crazy Quilting" in her work - but she has stamped her personality onto the seam treatments I had provided.
 
Pop onto this site - Ann has an novel idea of joining hand pieced hexies.

I am hoping to see Suz' s work when it is completed.

Back to the class here on the Sunny Coast - Wendy M has finished her wedding crazy sampler - all beautifully framed.........
 
 
I know I have posted her work before..........


 ...........but I think that it is worth seeing again.................


I love all the beading..........


and my favourite feather stitch..........


We are all making name badges in the classes at the moment- Karyn was pretty happy with hers - and so she should be..................


Now to Gail's work - she always does something different - here is her kimono -


   .....................the beading detail.................


WOW

Crazy Quilting - Lenore - CACA

Lenore had a busy time of it during the workshops - she is the treasurer for the group I think - never the less, she managed to produce vibrant and interesting seam treatments...................... and some nice big bugs!!


........busy ants scurrying along.............


.................... I love her choice of colours ..................


........................feather stitch, my favourite!!


.................luscious silk ribbon roses....................


..................... she went off with a bit of homework to do on this block.


.........not much to add on this one.
Great work, Lenore!!
