This one a "Sue Spargo" design, but I used up things in my stash to put together.
I am loving doing hand embroidery .
This was another quilt I made and all hand applique.
Now to get time to finish it off with some hand quilting.
Then something I so rarely get - " a prize" !
I won this from Patchwork plus - it is a Gail Pain Christmas book and some panels
with her fabric.
and a cut little bag made by Sarah.
Such a generous giveaway from Patchwork plus
I was very excited to receive this.
I think I show already the fabulous workshop we did with Bonnie Sullivan at GDITC
It was so lovely to meet Bonnie: (and of course all the girls that meet up each year):
This was Bonnie's finished one.
Was such a great workshop.
It wouldnt be the same if I didn't "dawniefie" mine,
so I added a little Japanese twist adding a little boro.
I also enjoyed stressing it and doing a little antiquing to give it an aged look!
Just a fun collage from the weekend.
These are a couple of swap projects I made.
Jenny - Bird on the Border won both!!!
two separate draws - how funny!!
and these are the lovely gifts I received from the two swaps:
this one from a lady in Grafton - Margaret -
and these lovely gifts from De - just love the fabric and the button coaster - awesome.
It is always so nice to both make and receive with "Swaps".
oh dear - it takes so long to upload pics.
there are more to come, but not now.
You get the drift - stitching never stops in this household!!
gotta get back to it.
