Friday Evening

Today I made this 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" needlepunch necklace. It goes into one of the little frames made for needlepunch and other small creations:

Last Tuesday was Stash Sisters evening. One attendee brought this pretty applique quilt she had recently purchased. Any opinions on the date for this quilt? Remember when the print that is in it was so widely available in the 70s (and is now being reprinted)? The ladies there said that the print was sold from the 40s to the 70s.




All of these were brought in for Show and Tell:



aaaaaaaaaar don't you love this pretty little Jo Morton??



This was one done in a class in which the motifs were customized for each quiltmaker; thus, the "donkey" in this quilt (in the center) to symbolize the ex-husband...

is this cute or what? I'm so glad they are reproducing some of these old graphics.
Isn't this a cute idea? Little Quilts sold these during the Olympics; the yo-yos symbolize the five Olympic rings.

This is a tote made from a kit. A 6x24" rotary cut ruler slides into the bottom and as you see, a cutting mat fits into the main part. Inside has lots of handy pockets. Fantastic!
