There will lots of free motion stitching happening and even if you are a total beginner when it comes to dropping your feed dogs you'll be able to make this.

Talking to the lovely girls over at Feilding Kowhai Quilters

Pop on over and have a look at the Feilding Kowhai Quilters blog, they have some photos up from the night I went along to speak. This first quilt is the one where some of my blogging friends all made a wee stitchery and I made them into a quilt. I always show it to everyone, I'm very proud of it!

They also have a photo of me hiding behind my quilt!
I also showed them some of the samples for my Symposium 2015 classes so they could get a close-up look at them.
I think it's hard deciding what classes to take and it's nice to be able to see the samples before you put your name down to do a class.

If you're thinking about Symposium 2015, head on over to the website - all the classes are now up along with all the tutors! Exciting!

Journal class

I am teaching another Journal Class in September! Yay!

I will be teaching it at Krazy Cow Quilts in Levin on 20 and 21 September. 
You will be making a very personalised journal and you'll be able to fill it as much as you want or leave lots of empty spaces to write in.


In this two day class you'll be playing with transfers, hand stitching, machine stitching, and you'll get to learn the secrets of making a fabulous journal.


These journals make gorgeous gifts, especially if you give them a theme. 

If you are interested give Trish a call on 06 368 5077 and reserve a seat. I'd love to have you join us!

Spring is coming!

We have had a couple of beautiful days, when the grey murky cloud lifted from the ranges behind the house they were covered in snow! Yay, I get very excited about snow. We've also had some heavy frosts. 

But the best thing about frosty mornings is that the days that follow are usually very nice.

I have these cute miniature daffodils out flowering too, a sure sign that spring is in the air!

I spent today out doors working in the garden, tomorrow is stitching day. 
What are you doing this weekend?

I should be working on my exhibition piece for Symposium next January, but, well, you know how it is!

I decided to play with some silk rovings, and if I would happen to do a spot of felting?

Might work. I think I just like the colours to be honest! 

Oh well, let's see what it turns out like. I'll keep you posted. I'm thinking I might turn it into a wall hanging?

See you back here soon!
