Stitching News

Jean Bean, in between helping everyone with their purchases... was quilting! It's usually tricky for Jean to sew, once she puts her machine on the table the customers come... This week though, she quilted and quilted!!

Queen Jacqui was playing with applique...There is a pattern and she started to follow it, but Jacqui is already going off on a side road... and Pleasing Her Very Own Self... oh my she has plans for a fun project... and we will all get to see what happens.

Gail is making great progress... the pile of blocks is growing and soon there will be a bit of joining of a few of them to get an idea of how lovely the quilt will be... one day! ha ha ha

Tuesday Rose is deciding how to quilt each block as she gets to it, "What, No Plan??" No, she is "Winging It!!" She's using some of her lovely decorative stitches to enhance the beauty of her Hare quilt.. (doesn't that sound artistic!) You might see better if you click on the picture to make it bigger.

Fran Cupcake arrived with the intention of making bags... and make them she did! I had a lot of new patterns recently, all from ByAnnie and lots of ByAnnie bag making supplies. They are clever and so is Fran... and she did a bit of PMS (Pleasing My Self) with the zip too.

Princess Jackie has us all watching this next project.. such vibrant colours and very perfect stitching with perfectly matching threads... oooooh it is exciting. I stock Presencia Threads, among others of course.. but the beauty of my 100m spools of Precencia is that you can have a great collection of colours without it costing the earth... £1.35 each spool... there are over 400 colours to choose from

Fran Cupcake's ByAnnie bag number two... really lovely fabric with a perfect matching zip and a great co-ordinating Presencia Thread for the quilting... Toot toot toot Fran... both bags, fabulous and finished.

PM Pam is in the process of gathering up projects for our upcoming Westhope Quilting Retreat... All the ladies are gathering actually. With this selection of beautiful fabrics... Pam is making a large quilt for a friend... will she save it for Westhope though? Let's see.
