Stitching News

Toot toot toot.... a fabulous and finished fanfare is needed for Morning Josie's most beautiful cushion... made with my lovely Moda Linen Blend as the main fabric... luxurious it is too. Josie hand embroidered the heather detail....
she likes a bit of hand stitching. 
While the tooting is going on let's have another round for Susan. Toot toot toot... this cot size project (baby quilt) has been made for gifting... Susan wanted it to be sex neutral as the baby colour will be a surprize... boy or girl...
this lovely project will be perfect!
Peggy made a quick sandwich... it's a little quilt and only needed the one table for a short time... she set about quilting and got loads done before home time... Peggy's making twin quilts, the other is still a top... we can sandwich that one next week.
All Day Di finally arrived at the book making part... stitching the pages together, in the right order... it was tricky as there are lots of layers to stitch through... including the Bosal In R Form wadding... she had to improvise a bit... and it worked!
I had a job to keep up with Brenda Barbara... every time I went to her she was stitching something different... Here she's hand stitching the binding on her perfectly pink and purple quilt... one time she was cutting Chicken fabric to size for another project and then there was the background preparation for the Flamingo... who had forgotten to come to class!!! ha ha ha
Merrily's been working out of the box again... I'm not actually sure she spends any time at all inside the box!! These Harris Tweeds have been collected, cut up, stitched back together to be cut up again and stitched into something very useful... you will have to trust me, it's going to be great!
Sheila's Batik Quilt-As-You-Go blocks are all joined into larger units with the apartment joining method... she stayed in the corner hand stitching for most of the day... it won't be long to tooting time now... 
A new customer came to ask a few questions about her project... which is amazing!!
Hours and hours of Hexagon hand stitching... so many cute little fabrics, old and new... We are always happy to help... and to interfere!!! ha ha ha
That's it for todays update... hope you enjoyed this post?
I'm off to my lovely little quilt shop now...
There's a little event on tomorrow and it involves the number 29 in lots of ways... as it will be the 29th February... one day only!!... thank goodness it's four years until the next one!
