Bolliwood Turrets

Jeanette's been doing more work on her 3D "Bolliwood"
inspired piece and now it's down to assembling and
adding the embellishments.
The picture does'nt do justice to the work in each piece,

Cot Quilt

Sylvia's one of our new ladies and last week she made a

needlecase. Her first real 'go' at patchwork.

This week she mastered the Rotary Cutter by cutting out

all her squares and sewing them together for a cot quilt.

She's a lady on a mission as her new great grand child is due

in February and wants the quilt finished to hand it over

when they arrive. She does't know whether it's going

to be a boy or girl so has chosen vibrant colours to be on

the safe side!

I must say as well, Sylvia used up the fabrics

she had and some she had been given.

I love to do this and it is often more of a challenge.

Wow, Sylvia what a morning, you got so much done!

See more patchwork on my site


Carols all fired up for more patchwork and Quilting

and is making a miniature Kimono, using my full size

version as inspiration.

Her fabrics are beautiful and vibrant.

The flying geese sections are going to be very tiny!

A good challenge!

See previous Wednesday the 12th blog entry this month.

Gallery Embellishing

Gallery Tuesday 18th of Jan was as busy as ever on the

creating front. Here, Jeanie is embellishing felt tops

on the embellishing machine

and using one of her original watercolour paintings

as inspiration.

Her painting was of "Withering Heights".

Avery atmospheric painting of a house on the moors.

See more embellishing on this blog and on


Heres me with mine on too.

I'm the one on the left!

My label says,

"6projects on the go, a real Quilter!"

I think that says it all!

Look at our Aprons

Look at this line up!!!

Barbara was such a clever lady and made us our own apron.

Each one had a label on it relevant to us.

Sooooo clever!

Coven Girlies Dinner

Here we are The Coven Quilters, on our celebration evening.
Don't we all look happy?
(The frosting round the photo was not intentional, I am
still getting to grips with the flash workings of
my phone!).
Anyway, we meet once a month and in January we celebrate by having our
meal where we each bring a course and have a
"Coven Christmas", pressies, party hats and all!!
It was such a wonderful evening and I feel so lucky
to have such dear friends.
Thank you girlies for another wonderful year together.
