MERRY CHRISTMAS STITCHERY



Well isn't Christmas the most busiest of times,  I am frantically trying to finish my Christmas Wreath to get it up before the festive seasons ends.... hopefully have a post soon.

In the meantime, here is a lovely Rosalie Quinlan stitchery that I finished and put on a canvas frame for  hanging.  I attended a class with Rosalie a couple of months ago and haven't made it back there yet but I hope to do another in the new year.

The thread is a Cottage Garden called Snapdragon and I love the way the red and green blend together.


I have also managed to finish my Crazy Quilt Beginners Class and here is the finished block.  All the silk ribbon work and beading is done and I popped on some charms and lace motifs to finish it off.

Very very happy with this class by Kathy, I would highly recommend you keeping an eye out in the New Year for the next Beginners Class and I am waiting to sign up for the Intermediate Class now.


Beads and sequins added.
 See the difference a few embroidery stitches and beading makes........

I wish I lived close enough to attend a class with some of your fabulous Australian designers!! I am definitely going to look out for the next online crazy quilt block class.... your finished block is fabulous! I just love the colours you have chosen and all that exquisite stitching.... just stunning! Congratulations on getting it finished! Have a good week!! :) xx
