Stitching News

Blimey, it's been a bit of a whirlwind in these here parts. Lots of personal paperwork to be done. Busy shop, for a lovely change and classes back up and running... my brain's been very well picked, ha!
I have been taking photos to show you and, hopefully, I will catch up soon...
Here's a start though, whet your appetite with these inspiring lovelies.

Farmer Lynda finished her Dinosaur gifting quilt.
 Isn't it just fabulous and very well worth a huge toot toot toot fanfare. 
An Elizabeth Hartman pattern that has sent Lynda to the naughty corner a few times but now...

Even the back is fabulous and she is totally chuffed to bits with her work.
Toot toot toot Lynda!

My Mum Gwynneth got back to her knitting and, as a special request, she knit up these two hats for two of her great grand babies. toot toot toot, they may not be quilts but they are fabulous AND finished.

A customer all the way from Liverpool asked for a quick tutorial on making Hour Glass blocks, that was about two weeks ago. Now she came back to choose the inner border, binding and backing fabrics... She used two of my Batik Six Packs with a Moda Bella Solid white in the main.

Hilary Hat isn't used to making quilts, she's made lots of cushions and little bags though.  This quilt was a little challenge for her. She's made a brilliant job of the Rail Fence blocks and now, it's a sandwich so she's ready to tackle the quilting.

Our Sheila has been working on this quilt over the last few months. It's great to have her back at her Juki, sewing away. This one was a 'quilt as you go' project and joined apartment-ly. It's the only way Sheila can cope with such large projects, and she's not alone there!
Toot toot toot Sheila, a fabulous finish.

Beano started another new project (we can't ask about the last one, ha!) The picture you see is the only clue to where this is going as there's no pattern... just some plain paper, tracing paper and a pencil, and of course, an eraser!!! We will watch it happen right here.

Pam purchased one of my Cats On The Fence quilt kits recently. There's quite a lot of cutting prep to be done but then it's an easy quilt after that. She already has the rows stitched together

Princess Jackie is ready for a toot toot toot-etty-toot for her latest fabulous and finished gifting quilt. She has made this design before but this one has been made a wee bit smaller by shrinking the applique patterns, such a beautiful quilt and very bright, Jackie's style!

As usual the back is all pieced and fabulous too.
Toot toot toot Jackie, a totally fabulous and finished quilt.

When you loose your Sew-Jo it's a great idea to make up a quick and satisfying project. Bendy Bags are the best for job satisfaction, n my very own opinion of course. Louise Merlot made this one. Toot toot toot, it's fabulous and her Sew-Jo has returned, yeeeeha!

Ok so you can probably tell I didn't have much time to write this and now I am in a rush to get the shop opened.... If there are typos I'll fix them later... byeeeeeeeeee
