All Day Stitching

Saturday was our 2nd annual January all day stitch in. Nothing beats the winter blahs more than getting together with friends, laughing, sharing, eating and stitching on our current projects. Two new grandmas are working on special pieces that will soon decorate the rooms of these precious new babies, different projects made during the holidays, a quick little heart kit put together for everyone to do, and on going projects. Such a great time, always look forward to spending time with these ladies!

Primitive Quilts Spring Issue

On the news stands now, Primitive Quilts 2015 spring issue. I have a small, simple reverse appliqué piece found on page 57.  Thought I would also share a rug hook piece I have done using the same pattern,with a few embellishments. It includes, felting, appliqué, beading, and standing wool circles. Remember, patterns can always be adapted to the the medium you want to work in, think outside the box!
