Inspired Stitches

Saturday morning saw me at Quilt Fabric Delights' Inspired Stitches with tutors Natalie Lymer and Natalie Ross. We were to have a third tutor, but she couldn't make it. When Janelle Wind heard about this she sent a new release pattern for us to use. (All the patterns at Inspired Stitches are brand new patterns) So there was plenty to do! This was our table.

There were so many pretty things to look at and to do. I chose to do a Cinderberry Stitches stitchery (by Natalie Lymer). There were a couple of stitcheries to choose from. I chose the gadget bags stitcheries just like the bag in the photo below.

Natalie Ross of In Stitches had a gorgeous strawberry themed stitching set with some needle turn applique. Lots of people did this appliqued strawberry so that they could learn Natalie's needle turn technique. I think every one on my table (except me) did it.

This was the bonus pattern from Janelle Wind. It is a journal cover and just looks so very like Janelle!

I really love Natalie Lymer's birds. Sooooooooooooooooo cute! I just had to take a photo of this because I really love the way it is quilted. It's just beautiful! I want to quilt like that when I grow up!

And this is my stitching. Wonder what I will use it for? A bag maybe?

Sounds like a lot of fun, wish I could have been there! A bag sounds like a great idea ;-). A girl never has too many bags, does she...

You obviously had a good time, your table looked good, I'm liking the look of those snakes in the glass.

Lots of good projects to pick from. I probably would have picked the strawberry just because I like strawberries.

I needle turned the strawberry on Nat Rs bag and started the stitchery for Nat L bag so fairly pleased with my effort ... who knows they might even get finished!!!! Great stitching btw. Lucky you to have done Marg Low and then IS!! Love the bookmark you made with Marg. Cheers Sue
