Needlework, knitting, quilting


This cute little needlework was designed by Sue Hawkins.
I bought the kit in France and finished it up yesterday.
It was fun to do.
 I like needlework and Sue's design is very special.

I also finished this knitted shawl.
It is from a class I participated at Craftsy.
The instructor Laura Nelkin is very good.

Have you done any class at Craftsy? 
At the moment I'm doing Shuttle Tatting with Marlee Rockley,
in the beginning I was really struggling, 
but I'm getting there, and really enjoying Tatting.
I will post pictures later, as I'm still practising.


I was going to hand quilt this top.
 After Dorothy sent me pictures of how she quilted hers S.N. I decided to use my machine. 
Some stitch ditch, some straight lines and some free motion quilting 
all with Aurifil Mako'NE 50/2.

ENJOY whatever you are doing and don't forget to breath deeply.

What a gorgeous needlework piece!
Your shawl is amazing too!
I will have to check out Craftsy.
I'm trying to learn how to knit.

Beautiful needlework, the colours so pretty. LOVE the shawl and look forward to seeing your tatting. As I worked on my May block yesterday, I was thinking of your Sweet Nostalgia and wondered how it was coming along.

Paula, your scissor keeper is beautiful - I do love Sue Hawkins kits. And your shawl is absolutely gorgeous. I have a couple of classes from craftsy but have not had a chance to follow them yet. Both are on free machine quilting which I have yet to master!!
