Hello again, gosh I don't know what is happening but just at the moment these blog posts are coming thick and fast!
I've made some good progress on a couple of my evening stitching projects. I've now finished Block 4 of Lynette Anderson's latest Button Club, Chateau Hexagon.
Aren't these Cranky Geese characters? ... they look like butter wouldn't melt...!
|Love this button!|
And I've also finished Block 2 of Quiltmania's current mystery. Sorry it needs a good press, I'm always worried about pressing applique and stitching as I don't want to flatten it all..... has anyone got a good tip of how to press a block like this?
favourite quilt shop. We had four classes, holding the last one last week.
We called it StarMastery - covering different stars with lots of variations for each to keep everyone's brain's ticking. It was lots of fun, although I will admit to feeling slightly uneasy when several of my sewing buddies decided to take part!! They wanted to keep me on my toes, I think, and I hope the feeling was mutual - insert a sly he-he here!
Here are some of the stars made, they all look so cool and different of course in everyone's unique fabrics.
You'll notice that I was one of those teachers who gave homework.... and you 'll be able to see who did their homework and who didn't!!

Kerry is using a NZ Paua print as her colour inspiration)
|Liz, who missed a couple of classes; we'll hold a catch-up soon.|
|Kerryn's been hanging her's up on the wall. Didn't get the best photo sorry Kerryn.|
(But I did get some good advertising for the shop!!)
|These are the samples I made for the classes.|
Time for bed to recharge my batteries for some serious sewing tomorrow :-)
Happy stitching everyone, and thank you for visiting,
