What fun I have been having! Last Saturday I had class to show the new Cutwork Needles put out by Inspira. Who would have thought I would have so much fun. My favorite project fabric covered journals. I embroidered the designs in tone on tone on the fabric first and then stitched them out in a contrast and had the needles "cut" them out.
I have also been using my embroidery machine for machine quilting..... I LOVE IT! You just hoop the whole quilt with backing and batting, select your design and off you go. So easy and the tension is great everytime. I made up this Christmas quilt to showcase the designs and I never thought I would like it this much.
I was recently visiting a friend in Parksville, we stopped by a second hand store and I couldn't believe that there were these brand new crocheted baby blankets. I bought 2, to set aside for future baby gifts, they are so soft and sweet. Get this they were only $3, it costs more for the yarn!
Paulette over at Sweet Pea Quilting has photo's of a quilt show held at Cloth Castle and mentioned that she didn't get a full photo of this quilt so here it is. I adjusted the pattern to make it into a quilt rather than a wallhanging. I apologize but I don't know who's pattern it is.
Happy quilting and sewing, Natasha
