Stitching News

All Day Di had a few tricky junctions joining the first two rows of HST's
(Half Square Triangles) and had to a bit of fudging... Then, much to her disbelief, all of the other rows were perfect and needed no fudgery at all...
She was amazed! It's looking lovely Di.
Fiona Too stiched her last two beautiful Batik borders in place then spied the empty table... a perfect opportunity to get her sandwich made ready for the quilting. The beauty of a small project is that sandwiches are easy on space and quick to pin.

Luna Lena 'invented' this little Gym Bag with matching wallet for pennies... It's going to be gifted. The main reason she made the project was to play with her fancy, decorative stitches and the  alphabets and numerous fonts... Toot toot toot Lena, a fabulous finish.

Sporty Sue arrived with all four quarters of her Trip Around The World quilt stitched together with the addition of a single row of squares to tie the 'Trips' to the world! ha ha ha. The border will be needing a few more trips and we had to figure out which way to go... It was easy, and obvious, once we got started.

AnnBacan came to make this fabulous sandwich... as did quite a few others but I forgot to take pictures because none of the fabrics were from my shop!!! ha ha ha This is only the centre of a huge quilt Ann is making. It will be quilted as is and the borders will be added later. Don't worry, we know what we are doing!
