February's completed projects

I have managed to complete a few items this month.......

The first is my geisha quilt. I gave up trying to work out a quilting design myself and sent it to Chris from Sandlyn House to quilt it for me. As usual, she has done a wonderful job.

In January, I attended a Cathedral Windows workshop with one of my favourite tutors, Julie Fenn at Somerset Patchwork.

So far, I have completed two of these nifty pin cushions, but I am hoping to complete more as, although they are time consuming, they are quite addictive!

Lastly, with the encouragement of my lovely friend Barb, I have discovered ATC's. Here are two I created for my group's monthly swap....

The theme was "Love is", and these were my attempts on the theme.
I'd love to hear what you think of my month's efforts!

Beautiful quilt Al, the pin cushion design is one of my favourites too! Are you in the SCQ ATC group or another one?

Hi Julie,
I am in another group - yes, it's a change for me not to be linked to a SCQ group, but my friend Barb (a fellow SCQer and amazingly talented lady!) suggested I join her group. I'm working on my second swap,and hope to become more creative and adventurous as I go along.

Great job Al,
Your work is beautiful - I really like the 'love is in the air' ATCs you made the ATC-WDU swap - I'm so pleased you joined us - it's a lovely group.
