Sorry, I couldn't help myself. I just had to make this. It's delicious and very high in calories. I'm thinking of giving it as holiday gifts this year so I just had "taste test" it. Luckily, I have young people in my life who will take these things off my hands before serious damage can be done. Here is the recipe:
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to listen to Mark Lipinski's web seminar about the Slow Stitching Movement. What a treat! Mark's point of view really resonated with me. You purchase the seminar here:
Here is this sweet quote all stitched. I have been playing with how I want to do the embroidery on the lettering. The top one has the embroidery done after quilting. The bottom one hasn't been quilted yet. Since I don't care what the back looks like I think I may do the quilting first. That way I won't have to do really fussy quilting. Anyone out there ever done this before?
Also, anyone out there interested in a pattern? Let me know.
So, life has a way of, you know, being life and last week was no exception. I was all packed and ready for Quilting LIVE and I was EXCITED! Well, then I was completely banjaxed by the head cold from hades. I mean completely BANJAXED!
So, now I am here to apologize to anyone who came hoping to see me. My friend Diane taught the classes and said everyone was lovely.
I will have bog worthy writing soon, once I stop blowing my nose!
I had bunches of fun this summer getting ready for the Bursting Star Quilt Along (coming later this year). The fabric we used was Miss Kate by Bonnie and Camille. Isn't it yummy? This video series showcases this really fun pattern, Bursting Star. It's a great way to get up and running with strip peiced diamonds without having to worry about set-in seams. I'm hooked and I know you will be too! Stay tuned for more details.
