First up is a little freebie from Primitive Betty called Crow and as usual, stitched a long time ago and only needed a small seam finish!
Last Saturday I found myself at a meeting of the Great Lakes Modern Quilt Guild. I had read about the guild on a blog and googled it and to my pleasure found there was a meeting that coming weekend in Plainwell, the second one ever for this chapter. Lots of discussion as to when to meet, what to do and of course, Show and Tell! Oh my word, some beautiful pieces! I will show you them next time, too tired to puzzle out how to move them from my phone!
I couldn't leave Plainwell without a quick trip to Stitching Bits and Bobs now could I? Would have been rude not to go! The high minded intention was to get some AVAS silks for the Scottish Sampler and I did. See?
But, sadly I fell off the no stash acquisition wagon travelling into 2013! It really was strange, these charts appeared on the counter too..... entirely Bobbie's fault, lol, I asked her what was still available in The Primitive Needle charts as I really, really, REALLY want Cape Cod Girls to be a companion piece to the Boys. So a small plea.....if anyone has the chart and would like to sell, trade or exchange I would LOVE to hear from you!
Still, I love Lisa's designs, small motifs, perfect!
Figural February Wrap Up in March!
Who are the people in your neighborhood...your WIP neighborhood, that is? Give your people-populated projects some face time this month.
Well, no more stitched on Any Shore so no picture but Blessed Are the Needleworkers actually got a figure put in it, look......
a lovely stitch, bright colours, clear chart symbols...I think I found a cure or at least a boost for Seasonal Affective Disorder!
For the ornament I got permission from Miss (Heather, that is, her very self) to stitch a snowflake instead of a snowman, all that white, yikes! Liz, who enables me nicely all the way from Canberra, no blog but I live in hopes, found this, a berlingot or a humbug to you and me! Stitched on white with blue floss! Lovely!
Naturally, being the work of a long time procrastinator, you sort of have to imagine it finished and made up into Nancy's beautiful ornament. This was from Issue 59 of The Gift of Stitching, thanks, Liz!
Next month is. . . . . .
March MadnessWork on something different every day...it's madness...of the funnest possible kind.
I'll let you know how THAT goes!
Think I'd better stop, it's late and I am off to visit the Second Treasure and Big Cousin tomorrow and a couple of stitching chums, what a treat! I might be rolling off the no stash train again, so sad!
Thank you to my new followers, it's ,lovely to see you here! Comments make me smile!
