Stitching News

Rose is making feather cushions for festive gifting, aren't they fabulous? Quilted with a leafy design making it look like they and the feather are being blown around...
This is moody grey, feather cushion number two, sandwiched and ready for quilting. The designs have been lifted from a pattern that Rose purchased at Festival Of Quilts and they have been given the Rosie touch... PMS (Pleasing My Self) is such fun eh 

New Sue made her Dwight Stag sandwich. He's been made using the ever-so-stroke-worthy, Moda Flannel fabrics that were delivered recently. He is a smart Dwight... An Elizabeth Hartman pattern. He will be made into a cushion for gifting. That's all presuming he isn't already finished... you know how Sue rumbles... Blink and it's done!

Jean Bean told me that there will, in fact, be another season of Advent days in 2019, so she is getting ahead for just that... A 2019 Advent Calendar... will it be finished on time? Jean has used Vlieseline Stylevil for her Stabilizer, in place of wadding... what a good idea! It can be rolled up rather than folded... but not until it's finished!!

Farmer Lynda's Unicorn Lap Quilt top... made for gifting and now ready for sandwiching... Stars will be quilted on the background... I know this because Lynda purchased a new Chaco Marker for drawing around her star template.
Only 10 more open shop days to go before sewing prevention season kicks me... oooops I mean kicks in!!
Open hours as normal until Saturday 22nd of December when I will have to close up at 2pm to get my sprouts on... they will probably still be bullet hard on the 25th as I missed getting them started in October!!
