Felted Pincushions….



I made 2 dozen of these today!

I would have made more, but

I ran out of panty hose…




Felted Pincushions…








I watched an excellent tutorial video by Patsy Thompson








2 hours later….here they are!








I glued the pincushions into little dishes……how sweet.

for inspiration!
















Fabric wrapped around clothesline rope…








Beth's pottery style bowl…








Oval Bowl…








Nancy and Kathi are cutting fabric strips








Kathi is wrapping her strips around clothesline rope…








Nancy is stitching her wrapped cord on the sewing machine…








She is creating an oval shape bowl…








Kathi's bowl is round…























Beth is an excellent bowl maker…








Zig Zag stitching holds the covered cord together…





















































Thanks Beth for a very FUN play day!









Thank You Nancy for being such a sweet hostess!








Like eating potato chips…








You can't stop at just one bowl!





I was busy cutting strips for student bowl kits,
so I didn't complete my green bowl until I went home…




My green fabric strips…







I had a few strips glued on at the Play Day…







When I went home to the Thread Shed…







I wrapped and stitched my bowl in one hour 15 minutes…..yay!

Barn Lot Quilt Series...



Barn Lot Quilt #1




I am satisfied with the placement of the images...






I will fuse the images to the rusty background fabric…







I leave it up on the design wall 

and bring the iron over to fuse.







I haven't decided on using an edge treatment yet...






Barn Lot Quilt #1……ready for appliqué stitching







Dollar Pony and a mama cow….just outside the window





Barn Lot Quilt #2


A few hunks of rusty fabric up on the design wall







I think this background will work…








Now to sort through the images…








Each quilt will represent some sort of a theme 

with the images…







Dollar Pony is yawning…

he's not impressed by the barn lot quilts











Sunrise this morning in the back yard...
