if you go down to the woods today...


you might find a pretty pink bear zippy bag!


I made this cute zip bag using the Art Gallery Fabrics pattern by Melissa. It was a present for my daughters friend but I know all of my kids would like one of their own!



This year my bee mates and I are making rows in the Bee A Brit Stingy Bee. It's really fun to see all the different ideas we've come up with. I have asked for flying geese blocks, all sizes but set the same way so they look like trees. Here's my first row that has arrived with Sheila:



Yesterday I was teaching a class at Patchfinders and one of the ladies had taken two of my previous classes, one to make the quilt and one to learn big stitch quilting. She perfectly combined the two and brought her finished quilt in to show me:

Tean and her stunning quilt!

Tean picked a great mix of fabrics and her stitching looks brilliant. She also added some adorable appliqué hearts with roses she had cross stitched. I love the whimsy and pretty touch they add:


I would love to add some cross stitch to my quilts too! Thanks for letting me share your work Tean :)

  1. What an adorable purse! Wish I had a granddaughter...or maybe I could turn it into a Lego pouch for my grandson?! That quilt is gorgeous, such rich colours! Isn't it exciting when our students bring us show 'n tell? You clearly are a good teacher! So cool: my uncle and aunt live in Manchester; my mum is from Bolton, but emigrated to Canada in '59, met my dad, and stayed!

  13. Isn't that super that you were able to see a finished class quilt? That's so cool! Fab work, Tean!
    Love your wee bear. I know a little girl who would love one in her Easter basket. I'd better get stitching.
