I have some fun photos to share. The first are a couple of pillows my mom finished for a friend of ours – Dottie stitched Burst of Stars (originally a Mystery class) in the Tahiti colorway and Amazing Color in the silks. She wanted them “fun & funky” so they were sashed with Kaffe Fassett fabric and wild trim. I wish they could live at my house!
Here’s a closeup of each. First is Burst of Stars…
And Amazing Color…
I received the picture below from Pierrette in Canada – this is another version of Burst of Stars – I can’t remember what I called this colorway but I love the way it came out. She added an extra border and it looks wonderful.
Next up is a set of threads I pulled for Galaxy. The Watercolours are Eggplant & Slate – lots of purples & greens. Carol lives in Australia and is blogging about stitching Galaxy with these threads if you want to follow along.
And here are some obligatory photos of my “stitching companions” – they both love to lie on my quilts! First up is Boots – he’s my boy who acts like a dog and sometimes talks to me. He’s very laid back as you can see.
This is Samantha – she’s my skittish girl – always pretty much on alert to run & hide whenever the doorbell rings. She’s very quiet, serious, & smart but loves to play with her toys and rubber bands…don’t write me – she DOES NOT eat them – she just bats them around!
Until next time,
