Finished!

 YAY - finished
I'm really please to have finished this. It's not exactly as the one we were shown on the class - but it is in the style of. I've really enjoyed doing something different. Beading wasn't something I'd really done before - but I'm pleased with the finished piece and would certainly include it again as embellishment.
 And here is one of the altered books I'm working on. The cover (above) and the inside pages (below).
I won't be able to show you anything else on this until I get it back - completed - at the end of the year.
As you've probably guessed the theme is 'The Celts'. I'm intrigued what others will some up with.
Hmmm. I need to find something else to make now....

Lovely little quilt, setting the little gems on the slant makes it work really well.

Outstanding Projects

Do you remember when this... became this? Well - It's time to get it finished.  This is my next project.  I intend to hand quilt kit with big black stitches. I always like to have a hand quilting project.
Last night I went to the Lutterworth Embroiderers Guild talk.  It was a great talk from Gizella K Warburton.  She shared her work with us - both textile work and photographs.  I really enjoyed seeing both.  Do have a look at her work.  It's abstract and uses some great fabrics which give the feel of the countryside.  These images give you a hint at the work Gizella produces. I hope to make progress with a few things this weekend and I'll post about it next week. Have a great weekend.

How to avoid lots of unpicking!

As I'd made good progress with making up this quilt top I had the bright idea to add a 'fillet' of yellow to brighten it up and add a couple of borders. So the idea was there - but how to do it wasn't - hence lots of unpicking.  I thought I'd share how I worked it out so you could avoid the unpicking So cut a 1 inch strip, iron in half and baste along the outer edge of the quilt. I basted along the edge so they be picked out easily - there is still a bit of unpicking.  Then stitch on the next border. 
Then press out and remove the basting. YAY. How else can you spend a damp Bank Holiday weekend. Hope you're all enjoying sewing too. Best wishes
