in the last couple of weeks there have been lots of stitching noise happening here at the house of broderie, noise, yes stitchers are a very noisy lot when lots of them gather together
we have had lots to look at and always excitement at starting something new ! and also seeing finished works of art by the friends who gather !
following on from our weekend with margaret sampson george, so inspiring, thanks marg, all sorts of things are being worked on and lots of ooohs and aaahs are heard as we all look at each others work, we all have more than one thing on the go at a time and the birthday girl, marlene, is no exception to that, she has started two new ones of these, identical they will be for her grandsons !
and this is one of her stars for 'come fly with me'
deidre is doing hers with a christmas theme and last sunday we were treated with her progress
oh christmas tree ! that's what i like about marg's teaching and influence, she gives you an idea and you can do your own thing !
looking pale and very pretty, anna has started her 'camelot' quilt
and then michelle came for dinner during the week and brought her 'camelot' blocks that she has done so far and in complete contrast they are looking very gorgeous
such a contrast in both of these making of 'camelot' !
the pattern and others can be purchased from my sidebar, all designs by trish harper
the embroidery girls had some finishes, noelle with her scarf, and jan with her clutch purse, both really lovely, very happy embroiderers !
in all the excitement and noise, i have to blame something, the camera did not take the usual sharp picture, but jan was wearing the perfect jumper to match her bag
and i have been interviewing some fabrics for a new project, yes i have heaps started, but back to the interviewing ! after seeing another of marg's versions of an old quilt, i want one too ! very early days !
and i have been to brigitte giblin's website and downloaded her pattern for her large hexagon bag and saw these scissors, oh i do love scissors !
they are really good, as my hands are now arthritic and very sore a lot of the time, i love these !
happy days to you, i have been having lots of them !
