Stitching News

New Sue finished this lovely quilt She used two Moda Charm Packs for the colourful centre and lots of different cream fabrics chosen from her stash for the edges. A great design for 5" squares don't you think? Toot toot toot Sue, it's a fabulous finish.

On the Thursday of last week that my wonderful shop was allowed to be open, Sister Susie came to purchase something to play with... she was very wise and knew she was going to be staying home. This is the very same Moda Charm Pack that New Sue used for the quilt above... how very different they look.
Sister Susie needs more fabric to finish the Charm Pack quilt so isn't able to continue sewing that project. Having been inspired by Our Pam's quilt in a recent blog post, Susie's been making these blocks from fabrics in her stash... Lovely they are too.

Kate's Lynda is also digging into her stash and making up these heart blocks. She says she's going to make this quilt for her very own self... It will be a lovely reminder of these strange times... and the fact that it's not pink is quite amazing!

All Day Di spent many a happy hour sorting out the fabrics for this delightful Apron... Pleasing her very own self and changing the fabrics over and over as she went along... for months and months. With this lock-down she's been able to finish it, so we get to hold up the trumpets... Toot toot toot Di, a fabulous finish.

Sporty Sue's project... it's Cross-Stitch but still on a patchwork quilt theme. I think I'm remembering correctly that Sue said it's a monthly sew along Cross Stitch, like a BOM (Block of the Month?) so she's working to stitch just at the right speed to keep up.

Our Pam is quilting one of her large scrappy quilts at the moment... and you know how that can be a challenge on the shoulders! So for a little light relief she put it to one side for a day and did a bit of appliqueing. She needs a few little Teddies ready for a new baby quilt... Can you see this teddy has 3D ears!! 

I have finally caught up on the Gift Vouchers for my very own shop... All hand painted with water colours... I'm no artist but don't they look great! I've put them away so they don't get covered in dust... This shut down will go on for ages yet.
Hope you are all stitching?
