Stitching News

After attending the Hearts and Flowers appliqué workshop recently, Morning Judith had an inspired idea for a special wall hanging. She carefully collected fabrics and started drafting her pattern by tracing it from....
...This most beautiful cross stitched picture, also done by Judith. The two works of art will hang adjacent to each other looking exactly the same... yet completely different.

Penelope Baskerville has little kiddies, it's quite tricky finding undisturbed stitchy time at home... "Oh yes, I remember eet well..."  (in a delicious a French accent!)  So she loves her 3 hours of undisturbed stitching time immensely. She's working on her Stack-n-Whack Kaleidoscope blocks at the moment. Penelope's fabric gave her lots of spiralling animal bottoms so she was thrilled to find a whole ducks in this block. 
PM Pam needs 40 of these 6" Maple Leaf blocks to complete her quilt borders and happily announced that this group of ten was the last. I think she's had just about enough of trimming her Half Square Triangles... I promised her that it would all be worth it, and I'm still sure of that.
