Woolling Away

Not sure if woolling is even a word. Regardless, that is what I have been doing. Lots of wool work. I have finished my next Wendy Williams project. This is the little zipper pouch that has  been covered on both sides. The second side has a pocket that has been covered. This is a design […]

May Hearts And Framed Works.

We are already up to the time that our May hearts due. These are turning into a delightful collection and are a pleasure to make. All felt for this heart. Felt on fabric for this one. These are the patterns for Snow Hearts from Bunny Hill Designs and several of us are making these together. […]

Planning For Christmas.

I take a long time to get some embroideries completed. Especially when they are put aside when other projects take priority. So on that basis I am always pleased when I can achieve a finish. This is a Trish Burr design and was in Inspirations magazine, Issue 92. It is mostly stitched with DMC threads, […]

Hello May.

May is the middle of Autumn for us but today is still a short sleeves day. No complaints from me! I may as well start the month with a finished quilt. These have been few and far between but hopefully I am back on track with these. This is a basic pinwheel quilt made using […]

April Snow Hearts.

April in the northern hemisphere is said to bring April showers. I would love to have some April showers here, too. It is still very dry and the garden would love a drop of rain. Together with Joan, Shez and Jeanette, I have completed the snow hearts for April from the pattern by Bunny Hill […]

Woolly Zip Bag.

Easter Ears.

Easter has arrived bringing with it a long weekend and delightful Autumn weather. I have made only one little addition to my Easter items for decorating – a crochet rabbit.. He can catch up with a few of his chocolate friends in the next few days. I am hoping to have at least a couple […]

Clear View.

Still not a lot happening here in the way of finishes. This little clear view pouch is the only offering. It was part of a kit from a stitching day with Gail Pan last  year. It did have an embroidery to go on the fabric side, but I am keeping that for another purpose. I […]

Snow Hearts For March.

So far, so good. I have been able to complete my Snow hearts for the March deadline. And again I have made two in different ways. The first one is all felt. And of course the second one is felt on a fabric background. Together with Shez and Joan we are meeting our monthly challenge […]

Working With Wool.

Working with wool fabrics appears to becoming popular. I have had the opportunity to be able to work on a project combining ideas from both Sue Spargo and Wendy Williams. The pattern is from Wendy and many of the stitching ideas are from Sue. The colours are more vibrant than the photo shows, but you […]
