Bee Runner is finished and Leo loves it! Worked on hooking it for an hour everyday since June! It measures 12" x 40" all wool. Pattern is in Wool Works Magazine, Summer 2018 issue, designed by Hayley Perry, Loop by Loop Studio.
Angel Face Heart punch needle pattern by Country Keepers. Designed by Donna Munson. The gold thread for the outline of the Halo and Wings is from Handy Hands Tatting, #20, 310 Liz-metallic. It punched beautifully, no problems with breakage. I sewed the front to red felt and turned inside out in the center. Before sewing I cut a slit in the center of felt. Once it is turned, add poly fill, sew up the slit and place a heart over it adding your name and date. Nice easy pattern.
Santa was posted in Wool Works Magazine, Winter 2017, pattern by Diane Knott. This one is punch needle and there was one for Applique.
Tis time for the tree! Free punch needle from Myrtle Grace
I did well at the County Fair and surprised to received 3 Best of Shows! My hand applique and hand quilted Lap Quilt, a 10 inch tatted doily and Mock orange marmalade made with yw squash. Dick like the ribbons but wanted to know if we get the jam back. It is delicious. Blue ribbon on the cross, pin cushion and placemat. So I got 24 blues, 5 reds and 4 whites.
Did we get a bad tunderstorm at the wrong time when everyone is picking up their entries and all the animals.
This is my design of Sodus Bay, NY Light House. Below is a picture of the light house. It is appliqued with Superior Threads Bottom Line. I also use it in the bobbin thread of my sewing machine with King Tut on top.
I have embroidered with size 12 threads but not cross stitch. This is Superior Sew Sassy size 12 and stitches up beautiful. The picture of the threads below is what I am using. This will be a double/queen size quilt.
These are different types of threads that I want to try in hand and machine quilting.
