Stitching News

You might have noticed that our Merrily makes 'different' quilts. Designs made up and involving a lot of PMS (Pleasing My Self) At the moment she is working on a Quilt-As-You-Go and Apartment Joining project, and yes, that is (was) Merrily's Holiday Tea Towel Collection

Di Butterfly has almost finished quilting with metallic threads. She planned to stitch around every little detail, butterflies and squiggles etc.... As the quilt is stabilized now though, the crusts can be trimmed and the binding can be added, then more quilting can be done after, if Di wants to do more that is.

Farmer Lynda has almost finished her quilting too. The bee fabric will be used as binding, which will be lovely. Lynda made this little quilt with the intention of gifting it but admits to having mean thoughts.... that it's turning into a possible keeper! A Bee Keeper!!!

All Day Di was having fun preparing all the tiny little applique detail for this fun apron, it was all sorted and nearing completion... progress slowed when Di decided to change out most of the fabrics... almost like starting again... it's a good job we promote PMS!!

Sporty Sue arrived with this sandwich. We had a little chat about possible quilting lines and lick-etty-split she set to, drawing on the lines and quilting them. Some lines pleased their very own selves and went in the blooming wrong direction, good job Sue is a dab hand at unstitching!

Nutty Nutter has a fabulous and finished quilt for us to fanfare about... It has been made for gifting and all it needs now is a little label on the back... not to give too much away but, labels can cover up a little blip very well!! ha ha ha
Toot toot toot Nutty Nutter, it is certainly a fabulous finished quilt
