Hand quilting progress .....







Here is the start of the hand quilting on my heart wallhanging. I have a way to go yet, but I want to get it finished in the next couple of weeks if I can because I have another project I would love to start. I refuse to start anything else until this one is done .... lol ....

The Way to Live Your Life

This is the signature of one of our craft forum ladies (Mitty), and I think it's brilliant ... it gives me a giggle every time I read it .....

Live your life in such a way that, when your feet hit the floor in the morning, Satan shudders & says... 'Oh sh*t.... she's awake!!'

I've been going through some boxes and drawers that I haven't ventured into for a while. I found these, and realised how scarily fast time flies ... lol ... These are a couple of Santa photos I thought I would share ....




Heart Stitchery Wallhanging

This week has been an absolute nightmare. It's one of those, what can go wrong, has gone wrong types (I bet you know the ones .... lol ), so I haven't been able to do as much as I would have liked craft wise. Here is an update of my Heart Stitchery Wallhanging. I've started marking it for the quilting, and will be basting this weekend sometime so I can start the quilting process next week (if I can find the time).

I'll post some more updates as the quilting progresses ... :-)

Here is a Stained Glass panel made by a very dear crafty friend of mine. It was from the same pattern I used for the one I made. It's her first attempt with anything like this, and I'm very proud of her. Well done Judy .... :-) ...

She used to be a paper crafter, but we brought her over to the dark side of fabric and quilt making, and she's never looked back ....

This is my current work in progress (among the many other UFO's ... lol).

I'm planning a wallhanging (inspired by my quilty friend Jan), and am nearly finished with the stitchery part. I'll keep posting bits and pieces as my project progresses.











Stained Glass Rose


I haven't done a Stained Glass pattern for a while. I got this one from Kylie (our almighty leader on the craft forum ... lol) and since it's too hot to be out and about, I got some time to make it up today ....
