At last..... Kathy Doughty's book 'Adding Layers' and Wendy William's 'Wild Blooms and Colorful Creatures' have arrived.
One of Wendy's projects is this lovely sewing case. We have these little cases in stock now. Be quick if you want one......
I hate to be the one to tell you..... but that's not a sun bed you are sleeping on!!!!
Very exciting..... The new French General range 'Le Bouquet Francais' has arrived. 40 beautiful bolts. Now to start cutting and sewing!!!!
Lately, at Hettie's Patch, we have been seriously hand sewing. A couple of weeks ago, Sue Daley and the Quilted Crow Girls taught some classes on paper piecing and wool appliqué. This week some templates arrived from Kathy Doughty of Material obsession, so I have been putting some blocks together by hand.
The block pictured below is made from a single template "Antique Rose Star". It's very clever.....just one shape makes this pretty block. It's all in the fabric choices. Change the fabrics and the whole block changes.
This next block is called Pickle Dish. I used a Moda Candy from Janet Clare's "Hearty Good Wishes" range plus some fabric. It was fun to make and again, full of possibilities.
