I am recovering from a fantastic week
spent with many talented and entertaining women.

Mostly I learnt some new stitches which I have turned into my own.

Most of the class made beautifull pieces for their wall.
Not  me!
I decided to sample every stitch separately and save them in a little book
I am going to call:
 "stitched together or pulled apart"
Thank you so much Mary.

In the meantime

I have started quilting this quilt
but in the meantime
I thought I would do something with the scraps from that quilt.

The pieces were tiny and I just thought I would see what I could make.
I didn't even cut the selvedges off!

Hand quilted
and there you go....
it looks different in the evening light doesn't it?

Still keeping busy

Can I say I have had a "brief" distraction to finish this?

Pocket pendants

Are these pocket pendants or pendant pockets.

 You know what this one is for?
I love making these little things.
Should I put them on etsy?

My friend Jan gave me a lovely length of dark blue cord
so I could make some more of these...

I am looking forward to my next work shop so I can wear my new "jewellery".

Can someone tell me, though,
when I have edited these photos (cropped, rotated, compressed)
when I blog they come out sideways??

A bit bigger

I've done a bit more...

I think I'm liking it.

I am having a sort of hibernation,
confined to quarters.
I am taking this time to get on with this quilt.

Am I blue?
Cutting edge?
