HAPPY NEW YEAR

Sorry it has been so long between posts. I hope that in 2013, I can devote more time to keeping my blog up to date.

I hope that everyone had a safe & Merry Christmas, & an even safer & Happy New Year. I pray that 2013 is the year for us all to shine & achieve all our goals & dreams.

This year I will be teaching online classes in stumpwork embroidery. So watch this space. I was lucky to be given a camcorder for Christmas this year from my DH & My son bought me a tripod for the camcorder to stand on. So I thought, why not use it to teach. This way I can reach more people around the world.

There is a bit for me to learn before I start the online classes, so hope to be ready for my first on line class around May.

Over the past few months I have been doing an online class with Karen Ruane as most of you know. I am making a highly embellished quilt/throw for my bed. It is a slow journey. But one I am enjoying greatly. Here is a photos of what I have done so far.

I am currently working on two more panels for this quilt. I think for it to be big enough for my queen sized bed I may have to make 20 panels in total. I am making the quilt out of old napkins, vintage fabrics & laces & anything in my stash that is white or cream. I have also added embroideries done for me by my mum & dear friend Isabell.

Well, on that note. I will close as I am off to pick my daughter up from the air port. She has been in Cairns this past week. Then home to do some more on my quilt blocks.

Take Care all my blog friends.
Warm Hugs

Hello Elizabethanne and Happy New Year! Your blocks look very interesting I can only imagine how long this must have taken you and the work that has gone into it, it will be well worth the effort when you get it finished!
