Our first hooking class was wonderful
first class we referred to as "an out of town teacher, we have to
arrange lodging, and gosh we are nervous we'll meet our expenses" went
very well. Don't all these rugs looks beautiful with the addition of
the braided edge? We expect we will see many more rugs finished with
We'd like to share a couple of quick and
easy projects by Bits & Pieces by Joan. When we visit quilt market
we always make a stop by Joan's booth and always leave her booth several
dollars poorer but many patterns richer.
Although this piece is called "Spring Angel" we think it could be
displayed throughout the year. Our piece is framed but the piece could
easily be finished as a small wall hanging. It finishes 5" x 12" and
your $14.95 kit includes the pattern, background cotton, and wool for
applique. We'll be happy to put together a Valdani thread kit for the
project if you'd like.
On a side note -- isn't that egg tree just the cutest thing?! Another
great find at one of the many local thrift stores.......sorry.....it's
not for sale.
"Wildflowers" is another Bits by Joan
design. Wouldn't it be a sweet companion to the spring angel? It also
can be framed or finished as a wall hanging. Your $14.95 kit includes
the pattern, background fabric (we used a really neat Diamond Textile
woven), wool for applique, and buttons (buttons may vary).
We recently learned Yoko Saito's book "Past
and Present" is out of print. It is a hard backed book filled with
breath taking designs published by Quiltmania. We have only a handful
of books and once they're gone, they're gone. Cost is $56.95. Since we
have so few copies, we aren't going to put the book on the web so we
don't oversell. If you want a copy, please e-mail
(firstname.lastname@example.org) or call (479-372-7403) quickly. Limit
one per customer.
We'll be back next Thursday with more new
projects to inspire you. Until then we hope you have a great week.
