Wednesday's here again

                    Hi every body. Well I made the shop window at Quilters Haven or should I say Elfin Patch quilts did,also my Seaside Sampler, they were all looking very smart in the autumn sunshine. These are the first two designs that Karin from Quilters Haven and I have collaborated on, I design the quilts and she writes the instructions 
(I do hate writing instructions)  

                            Well it was Wednesday Club and there were not a lot of us there.We should rename it stitchery club as only three people had brought their sewing machines, the rest of us were doing things to do with stitchery. I have finally put a sleeve on my Lynette Anderson Christmas quilt of two years ago, and will now give it to my two youngest grandchildren for Christmas.

My finished Quilt

This is my favourite panel
This little panel always makes me smile, its just so funny and I might just make this one again for myself to hang up at Christmas.I have so many things to do on my to do list, that it might not be this Christmas ha!

I spent the rest of the day hand quilting another Elfin Patch quilt that I am designing, possibly for Karin, it's still secret so I can't show you yet.

Jan's Stitchery Pillows

Jan was working on some stitchery pillows, the Red Work bunnies were from Bird Brain Designs 
I have used lots of their patterns and their site has lots of free downloads too. Well worth a visit.

I had a bit if a shock today, I ordered some Cosmos silver thread from Crab.apple Hill, as I could not get it here in the UK, they were $6  a skein, and I ordered six, the postage was $17 and then would you believe it, I got hit by customs and then the British Post office handling fee £12.49p. These six skeins have cost me a fortune, I do hope they look GOOD on the Christmas quilt I am doing. It's for the elves beards. Will share picture with you when it is finished.

Keep safe and keep stitching...... Doti....


  1. You forgot to mention the vast cost of sending your husband to go and get it.

  2. Those customs men are so random.... I don't think it fair to include the postage costs as that is not the value of the item.... Appeal.....!!
