|Needle-punch tool that Linda used to felt her pincushion.|
These two photos above show how Linda P. needle-punched a felted pincushion, from start to finish in one day. She made up the design as she went along. Sure looks like she has enough felt to keep everyone warm!
The other Linda made a felt needle case and is shown here working on the embroidery.
Nancy didn't use felt, but she stuck with the cozy winter theme with this embroidery kit called "String in the Lights." Nancy hosted and fixed a delicious breakfast and lunch, but I didn't wake up enough until midafternoon to take photos. This time of year I'm pretty sluggish until later in the day. It's almost 10 p.m. now and I'm finally hitting my creative stride.
Carolynn carried through the warm, red theme with her quilt featuring panels of Northwest art. She's working on the binding here.
And yours truly reacts to the cold and gray by using sizzling summery prints in yet another Jelly Roll 1600 quilt, although the backing is a warm comfy green flannel. Love that chartreuse. I think this Christmas my colors are going to be apple green, turquoise, chartreuse and cherry red.
Here's a link to one of my posts explaining the Jelly Roll 1600: http://sherriequilt.blogspot.com/2013/03/rolling-out-color.html
Instead of the beautiful table setting, which I forgot to get, I'll end with our messy sewing table.
Have a colorful day
