Show and TellThursday, November 19, 2009
Today is show and tell day. Wonderful pictures have been sent to me and I want to share them with you.
Jane Anderson made the above pictured quilt from our pattern "Halloween - 1904" for her daughter Kathy. Not only did Kathy get this quilt...she got a wonderful sheet and pillowcase set too!
Love the witches flying on their brooms.
Kathy...we are all coming over to your house to spend the night! (I know, enough to almost frighten you....but it would be wonderful to sleep under your quilt!)
Sue Dunn from Australia sent the picture below to us.
Melody writes, "Thought you might like to see how nicely your little freebie worked up for me.I love your new Joyeaux Noel book – can’t wait to do the mini Eiffel tower stocking – darling. Here’s my blog post if you care to take a look http://wooley-thoughts.blogspot.com/2009/11/souvenir-de-france.html
Thanks for all your great designs – can’t wait till you and Barb come back to the Olde Green Cupboard some time. Next time please do a class on hooked rugs – my other passion LOL."
Her Souvenir de France is pictured below. The beaded trim is a great detail.
The next 6 pictures were sent to me by Lori Jennings....She writes,
"I just had to share with you some pictures from a recent trip I took. Several of us gals decided to get away from the mundane (work, kids and husbands to be exact) and spent the weekend at the beach in Rockport, TX. One of the ladies brought along all the materials needed to make Pumpkin PinKeeps from your Tis Hallowe’en book.
Anyhow, I hope you enjoy our Pumpkin-Palooza ’09 pictures and thank you for your wonderful creativity and easy-to-follow instructions."
Lori.....I think Barb and I need to come visit you next year in Rockport. You ladies look like you know how to have a good time! I can almost hear the laughter as you set up the pictures! Love your pumpkin patch.
Deborah King finished this covered box and sent the following note.
"Loved your box tutorial so thought I would send you a photo of mine. I picked a large box 9 inches tall so it was a bit tricky trying to get it just right, but even so it was pretty straightforward thanks to your clear instructions. Mine has a few bumps and crinkles - but I won't tell if you don't.
As you can see my colours are not at all muted! My box came with a circular tag - and I am going to "ALMA" it once I have had a chance to read your tutorial on tags."
Deb...I love the paper inside your covered box. Did you do some collage work on this or did it come this way? Love your fabric too. Not everything has to be muted!
"Here are some photos my last work !!!! I have finally sewn the model "Their Song" with other embroideries. The other embroideries come from a French designer L'R de rien. I have used the same fibers as "Their Song." Have a nice week-end.
Thank you all for sending your wonderful pictures!
