SPRING SEWING with Kate~

 
Kate is busy making herself a new pillowcase with some blocks she bought at the MQX vending show.

She has come such a long way in our sewing room....measuring and cutting her own fabric...plotting out the design...drawing the words to embroider...embroidering the letters....sewing all the seams. Focused....lost in her creation....It's such a treat to look over and see her concentrating on her work~


Kate has been coming here for a few years now.....she was a quilter from the start~

 
 
 Deanne Fitzpatrick sent along a tote bag with the "birthday" frame that arrived at my doorstep~ It was calling out for my #6 perle cotton! Thanks Deanne!
 





Making it my own...
