Playing with Christine

I'm off to sew and chat and eat lunch with lovely Christine at her place.  I know I'll have lots of fun...but how much sewing will be done?
(This is another delightful whimsical Inge Look piece of art.)
Do you visit Chaos and Love.  It is a great place to visit.  I spotted this project and was instantly in love. Please follow this LINK.
Huge thanks to Jessica - she is such a clever cookie.
Have a fun day

August OPAM

Not a huge amount of finishes this month but I do like what I finished. All are presents.
A picture, a mini and a table runner.  
Here is the LINK to this fabulous pattern and tutorial.  Designed by Gina it is very kindly shared on The Shabby Creek Cottage and I think it is wonderful.  Many many thanks to Gina.
Have a fabulous day

Sewn and Quilted

Not much progress on any of my sewing so I thought I'd share some pictures of some of the new samples hanging around at Sewn and Quilted.  I had a fabulous time there yesterday afternoon although not a huge amount was actually sewn.  The place was buzzing with friendly conversation and busy with lots of customers.  A great place to be.
I just adore Anni Downs in French General

I am so happy I found Pinwheel Ponders.  It is a great place to visit with fabulous tutorials including one for this beautiful Christmas ornament.  Here is the LINK.

A Community Quilt

Members of my wonderful quilt guild, NOTYQ, make hundreds of community quilts each year.  Many are a group effort, with someone cutting a kit, someone else piecing, another quilting and finally someone else to bind the quilt and label it too.
Most go off to members of the wider community, who need the comfort a quilt can bring, but some go to guild members too.  This one is for lovely Helena.  
I spent a bit of time getting many of her friends at the guild to sign some hearts, which I sewed on the back.  So many good wishes for a lovely lady.

Kacey over at Stay at Home Artist has so many wonderful ideas and we are really lucky as she very generously shares them with us.  You can check out her tutorials by following this LINK.  I particularly love her Mistletoe,which you can find if you follow this LINK. It would look lovely decorating Christmas parcels.  Many thanks to Kasey.
Have a wonderful Friday

Beautiful art

I ordered some more beautiful pieces of art by Michelle Palmer.  I am a huge fan of her work.
Each drawing contains exquisite detail.

I'm planning on combining Michelle's works with some of Barb's beautiful buttons and a bit of simple embroidery too.

If you are looking for a multitude of delightful free patterns you should pop over and visit wonderful Jacquelynne Steves The Art of Home.  There are many adorable stitchery patterns such as this one

Simply Vintage

Simply Vintage is my favourite magazine.
I think Issue 11 Summer 2014 is particularly wonderful and contains lots of projects I want to make including this one which is called Tree of Love and is designed by Marg Low

I have trouble sleeping so at 4.00am I was up doing the prep on this project so I can take it to sew at NOTY tomorrow.
I'm adding the word Noel as I thought it would make a lovely Christmas project.

I am so in love with these gorgeous pillowcases.
We must thank fabulous Mary of At Home on the Bay for sharing a tutorial on how to make them HERE.
Another day playing with Henry for me.  This always makes me so happy.  Hope your day is happy too.

A new mini

I'm turning my August Stitching with Rosie project into a mini.  
I'm using some of Rosie's new fabric range which I bought at Gail B's.   It features tiny teeny weeny hexagons.

Here is a Link to a really sweet little project.  Pop over to Craft Designer For Hire for a multitude of projects.
Hope there is time for some stitching in your day
