Stitching News

Annbacan is making a floor play mat to match the cute cube I posted about... she's mostly having fun making it but that awful, lofty polyester wadding is being very tricky... I told her it would be!! 

New Sue wanted us to see her Christmas Sampler progress
Such a lovely project, it's been tricky finding the perfect fabrics to get these perfect results though.

Carol's book progress.. A Kid's Quilts pattern... just lovely...
as I write for you, this book is actually finished
 Carol is half way through another book... 

Krafty Karen finished the main part of her Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt top... you can't go wrong with blue and white can you... always a winner.

Brenda Barbara is making a twiddle quilt for Aunt Bessie... not the one who makes those delicious frozen Yorkshire puddings, but a relative who needs to twiddle with buttons. We love making these twiddle quilts!

Our Sheila is working on another amazing commissioned project... There's a lot of research involved and 'oldie-worldie' English language to translate, it's keeping Sheila entertained!

Sister Susie is quilting her baby play mat... it's a lovely combination of fabrics all carefully chosen by the mummy of the grandbaby.

Henry's Christmas stocking will be ready in good time for this very next Christmas...
by hook or by crook.... "Oh Yes it will!!!" ha ha ha

Brenda Duck was determined to get her huge Jelly Roll Race quilt quilted... the centre was finished and the border design was chosen... licketty-split!

Farmer Lynda decided to start making a kiddy play mat type of quilt using one of our very popular packs of pre-cut 6" squares...

Enid is determined to perfect her Patchwork piecing. She continues making these blocks and each one is a tiny bit easier than the last... that's progress.

Margaret's current project started with that question...
"What can I make with this fabric"
We pondered and this is the progress so far... fabulous!
We are very busy here in the Whiston house... at least I am!
Clocking up miles and keeping all those plates spinning... tricky but necessary.
71 days until this years' gifting day, with turkey and trimmings...
but only about 60 days until sewing prevention season ties us in knots!!!! aaaaaaghhhh
