Last post I was part way through my first block of Hop To It Quilt (by Edyta Sitar) and now, yaah, I've finished it :-)
It is needleturned and I really enjoyed working on it. I love the way the vase morphs into flower buds!
I've been sidetracked this week after finding this cute little pattern (below) on the Laundry Basket Quilts website (also by Edyta Sitar - do you see a common theme here; I LOVE her work!!)
I've also completed a block for a friend... I can't show you much but want to show off how I did the eye.... I discovered this stitch at a recent sewing machine class ----
|One clever stitch - only takes about 30 seconds and voila! We have an eye.|
Isn't it great!!
|She just tosses the pins aside..doesn't even do anything helpful with them!|
And finally - Now I've shown a photo of this cat before, pulling pins out of my work... I got a really good photo the other day.... note to self, put all pincushions out of reach!
I hope your week has started off well - to all my kiwi (New Zealand) friends, hope you are keeping warm and that any snow you may be getting gives you more joy than grief.
