Classes 2017

I am very busy again teaching this year.............................but I do manage to get some time to do some stitching of my own....................bullion roses with Cottage Garden Threads............


..........so lovely to work with and the colours are great.


I am just having a play -making nothing in particular.


Life is good.


I am back teaching the lovely people from Caboolture - third or forth time I think.
These lovely block rolls belong to Ailsa. Her work is always so pretty.


Another lady who does gorgeous work is Elaine.


This is what Elaine did with me in the last group of workshops.


the back of her bag is just as pretty.


Betty added cast on stitches to her button.


One of my "virgins" is working on a bag.


Back to Patchwork Angel classes - and Ellaine created a beaded fern frond.


Michelle's little ants and beaded leaves.


Since it was Valentines day, Monika created a heart.

 
Till next time.

Heather's crazy

Heather joined my classes as a very proficient embroiderer.
She is one of those neat, tidy and organised people (everything I am not)


She was lovely to have in the classes.


She took her time, which is great.


The care she took in each stitch is evident in her work.


Every stitch in its place


Heather's crazy is clear and uncluttered


Fresh and modern

 
Perfect amount of detail in her seam treatments. Hard to believe that these blocks are just 6".


Bye for now Heather. Thank you for allowing me to share your really lovely work.

My year of completing my UFO's

So this year, I have decided to get my sewing room clear of UFO"s

Staring with some embroidery.............


I finally added some bud things


 and some leaves................. the embroidery is a little "tight and intense" for my liking - but that's obviously how I was feeling on the day.


I found this little basket of 1/2'' hexagons.........


I could not remember what I was going to do with them...........
however, I joined them while watching the tennis..........removed the paper etc


Added a doily and made this little purse thing.

 
Happy how that UFO turned out.
 
Till next time.
