Stitching News

It's a bit sparce on the photos again this week. There is a bit of secret sewing that I can't put on my blog just yet. You can safely presume that my customers are being very stitch-ily productive.

Christabelle found this project a little challenging but is super proud of her make.

She's going to be able to organize all of her stitching bits and bobs in the one place so she'll always know where they are! With zipped pockets and elasticated loops and even the ironing pad. Toot toot toot Chris, it's a fabulous finish.

Princess Jackie finished her Fabulous Farm quilt. Each quarter was quilted separately making the job very much easier and therefore more enjoyable, of course. It's so bright and cheery and Jackie has allowed me to have it hanging in my shop for you to take a closer look. You can even stand there, with or without a trumpet, and toot toot toot it!!

This is the backing. You can see quite clearly where the four quarters are joined, such a clever method for large quilts. For now the Fab Farm pattern sold out but there are more coming soon, should you like one?

Do you remember Norma working on this charming patchwork elephant? 
She was making a wall hanging for gifting. After spotting Di's latest strippy cushions, she got all inspired
Norma decided to cut out the elephant leaving just enough fabric to hem all the way around her so that she could to attach her to Norma's very own strippy background. She's really pleased with her art work too. We soon got the elephant sandwiched and Norma is plodding along with the quilting, not her favourite job, she might have mentioned that quite a few times, ha ha!

My shop will be open tomorrow, Tuesday 5th March, as normal but then closed until the following Tuesday, that will be the 12th.
We're off on a retreat you see, you were informed in plenty of time so I won't feel guilty, at all.

I have already started to compile the list for people wanting to attend the Licky Hills retreat in May and the October one actually. Both are for taking your own projects to work on. Quality sewing time, only interrupted by mealtimes and bedtime!
If you'd like more information, just send me an email and I'll try to provide you with everything you need to know.
