Jane's TIAS is a Pram!!

Many Thanks Jane Eborall for a wonderful and challenging ride through the TIAS!!! Enjoyed every step and learned some new techniques. Lots of split rings, split chain, Lock chain, and Catherine Wheel Join. I finally learned the Split Chain and Catherine Wheel Join.
 Excellent instructions and diagrams.  Looking forward to next year.

Here is a "Click-It" Bag. Very easy to make. The click-it comes from the metal ruler and it really does click and closes tight. The tatted medallion above is a pattern from Nancy Tracy. If someone would contact me  if they know the designer of the medallion below. That is one of my biggest problems is that I do not label who the designer is and have lots of nifty tatted items to add to projects. Perhaps that should be one of our discussions as to how you store and label your work!

Winter Wonderland Quilt

The embroidery has been done some time ago and part of the hand quilting. This past week I have been hand quilting the top part.  Need to quilt around the tree and the center is finished. Will begin the borders and edging soon. One of my goals to finishing a UFO!!
One can see the embroidered blue snowflakes but the hand quilted snowflakes do not show up. They are very pretty and were quilted with the fly stitch. I use a 14 inch hoop so I can turn my quilt all the way around and it is comfortable sitting in a recliner. So far I have over 300 hours of hand quilting. I usually work about 1-2 hours a day.
