This little lot of goodies arrived yesterday from Foothills Fabric and Threads. It is all the result of the Creative Women Workshop I went to in Launceston last month. The white stuff is Weaveline to which I was introduced by Sarah. It is great for adding to the back of stitcheries to give a bit more stability - also stops your thread ends showing through to the front of your work. The little bottle is Roxanne's Glue-Baste-It which Gail and Rosie both recommend for holding your needleturn applique pieces in place. A tiny spot means you don't need to use pins. Can't wait to try another needleturn project soon - probably Gail's cute bag.
The size 10 straw needles will be great for this. The pink ric-rac was supposed to be for the Sally dolls hair. As I was too eager to get her finished and substituted linen ric-rac, maybe I will have to create a sister for her.
This little quilt is an older creation of mine called Harvest Stars. The pattern was from one of the first quilt books I ever bought called Little Quilts - All Through the House.
Some of the points are cut off and not all the seams match but I like the scrappy, naive feel of it. Most of the time it lives in the lounge room helping to disguise a rather unattractive stereo system!
Finally, thanks to Catherine from Quilt Obsession in Toronto, Canada who has decided to join my Pay It Forward. Catherine is another blogger with beautiful pets - two very cuddly looking pussy cats. There is still room for one more in the PIF and remember you have 365 days to make your gifts.
