Well here is the lastest. First I must admit that I made a mistake in February by putting in extra eyelets in each square. My MIL spotted this so now the back of my work looks like a rats nest.

This month I chose to make the triple cross a bit more delicate by only using one of Kreinik in the step.
Now back onto Twister for a while.

Sue Spargo Class

Okay here a few photos of the work I did the last weekend in Feb with Sue Spargo at a quilting weekend getaway. It was wonderful to just let the creative juices flow. My only wish is that I'd had my whole studio with me to pick embellishments from.

Loved working with silk velvet but followed Sue's suggested of using Presto stabalizer before appliqueing it.

There is still a lot of work to be done on this, but a think one of the biggest challenges will be when to stop. I intend to add a lot more beads next and finish up some of the areas that I started whilst there.
I suggest looking at Sue Spargo's blog as she has posted more photos from this event.

Easter projects

Hi there I know it's been a while. I have been to my weekend getaway but not yet unpacked as I had a bad infection after a cold.

That said I did buy a kit for a cute Easter mat while I was there that I have now made up as a gift for Louise. I'm also making another version for my own family.

Feels like I'm behind on everything this month as I also haven't done my ANG stitch of the month. I did purchase some batting yesterday so I will try playing with my Bailey longarm somemore

as soon as I find the tub with the quilt tops in.
