Stumbling across a WIP

Once, there were two adorable Dutch salt-and-pepper children who loved to play outside.  One day they stumbled across a needleworker’s work-in-progress:

They started looking around to see if anyone was watching them because they were afraid that their calf that had tagged long might have soiled that piece of expensive-looking linen:

But the kind needleworker told them “no harm done”, and was glad that they stopped by to visit!  The end.

Thank you for stopping by today, my bloggy friends!  I hope you have had a great day so far!!

“Where they make the sausage” and News!

Hello Everyone,  I hope that you have had a great weekend.   I also hope that your Monday is going to be a GREAT one! :)

I did get to squeeze in a few stitches on my “Spanning three centuries” wholecloth quilt.  I am logging the time and see how long it takes me to finish this quilt.  So far I have logged about 5 hours.  I am always surprised how fast time passes by whenever I do feather quilting.  Here is the first “where they make the sausage” picture – nothing fancy.  As you can see, the markings are still there, threads aren’t buried into the quilt batt, no background quilting to fill in the negative space…

All this is brought to you and made possible by the Bernina Stitch Regulator:

Other news — stay tuned for some new patterns coming out in a couple of months using new fabric collections.  I am showing you sneak peek of two patterns:
