Red and Blue Embellished Cards

After Judith left I started beading and embroidering
my felted and embellished cards.
I love this combination of the rich reds and blues.
The flower type one in the middle reminds me of
a textile artist's work by another Judith who makes
"Heart Felt Wishes",
It was not intentional but it obviously came out with the
made felt design.

Studio Day with Judith

On Friday Judith came along to Quilters Cottage for
a Studio Day,
to finish her large double quilt.
The corners had to inset and the borders were
put on.
She also learnt how to use her new sewing machine.
Very nice one too!
She wanted advice on how to quilt a baby quilt
that she is making for her Niece in Spain.
So learnt how to do free machine quilting.
I think she will be straight stitching this quilt this time
and then practicing some more.
I tell everyone it takes practice.
We don't just get in a car and start driving it.
We have lessons and practice.
Skills of any description take time and practice!
We had a lovely day but sadly it was a little
to cold to sit on the veranda and have lunch.

Christmas Quilt

I know it's early but I have to start
Christmas Quilting now otherwise I
never have enough time to get a decent amount
of items together to do the shows I am invited to.
I finished quilting and put the bias binding on it,
