Online Class

Hello, I have been a busy girl practising my stitches, I have joined an online class for crazy quilt embellishment and it is really good. I have never seen some of the stitches and I especially like one called wheatear, which is exactly what it looks like when stitched. Christen Brown who is taking the class explains everything very clearly and it is lovely to see the questions other people need to ask because this answers some of your query's too.

Yesterday, was a really beautiful day, Kathleen (cottonreel) and I went to IKEA for a browse, Kathleen ended up buying some new garden furniture and a pretty little pale green metal table for the conservatory. I bought some bits a pieces, I bought fabric, they have some very chintzy one's at the moment, very Kath Kidston and a pretty chintzy duvet cover and pillowcases as you can tell I love florals. We had a nice lunch and managed to get everything in the back of my little Pugeot 205, today I have been round to attach the legs to the tables, they look very nice, we sat at the green one and had tea and cheese scones, Lovely!

Jilly, Wonderfully fun, isn't it! See if you can find a CQ stitch book by Carole Samples. She has the most amazing collection of stitches in it!
