Show and Tell

Hi everyone
     What a busy week I have had. I haven't had much time to sew, I have started my Crazy Patch Wool Crazy though. I think I will just make one block and use it for a wallhanging.  At the Cloth Castle we are having a quilt challenge based on Crazy Patch, I love the challenge it is always so much fun and really gets you to try a project you may not have done otherwise. Here is the start, I still have a ways to go but I'm having so much fun.

    I recently celebrated my birthday (I confess I struggle with birthdays), but I have special people that make it a day to celebrate. My friend Trudy made me a very special pillowcase. Trudy spent a lot of time doing the hand stitching on the cuff, I just love the idea of hand stitching. I just think that there is so much love that goes into a hand made project. I will treasure this gift for years to come.

Isn't the stitching just beautiful! One of the most special gifts I have had made for me, I just love it.

A Quilt Till you Wilt friend of mine (Lee), made this Dresden Plate bag for me. Lee buys a lot of my leftover fabrics from samples and makes a lot of projects from them. I'm pretty lucky that she thought of me to make a gift for.

My coworker Pauline made this stitching set for me. Can you believe the pin cushion and scissor case were all made entirely in the hoop of an embroidery machine!

Well I hope you all have a great weekend and Happy Father's Day,


  1. The pumpkins look so good on your wool piece. Fall is my favorite time of year and that is what they remind me of.

  2. Happy Birthday, Natasha! You got some lovely gifts...and I'm liking the Crazy Patch!! Yes, I said the same thing about doing one block! Can you imagine doing FOUR!! OUCH!

  3. Happy Belated Birthday Natasha. You really did get some great gifts-they are awesome friends. That crazy patch is just humming along.
