Pinestream Quilters

Last night I was the guest speaker at Pinestream Quilters in Upper Hutt, Wellington.  

I've spoken to Pinestream Quilters previously, so I decided to take along some of my bags and tapestry cushions, as well as my most recently finished quilts of course. 

Everyone loved my Giraffe tapestry cushion designed by Kim McLean.  I thought that they were no longer available, but upon checking I see that they are back in stock at the Crewel Gobelin in Sydney here.  You can read more about my cushion and how I attached the tassels here. 

I also talked about bag making and showed some of the bags that I've made myself.  

My modified One Hour Basket made with a Renaissance Ribbons velvet ribbon was very popular.  I've found the velvet ribbon in stock at Bower Bird near Hamilton.  Mel from Bower Bird has two new versions I haven't see before:

Both of them would make beautiful baskets.  I'm getting tempted myself! 

Someone asked about my Pandemic Sampler by Long Dog Samplers and I was horrified to realise this morning that it's been waiting for the back stitching for 11 months now!! I really must get onto that ASAP.  

Thank you Pinestream Quilters - it was a lovely evening spent with like minded quilters. 

Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  Feel free to link up a recent blog post below.

I'm happy to know you continue to get out to share your beautiful creations. No doubt everyone enjoys seeing the things you make, and all those bright, happy colors. Can I tell you that I'm relieved to know you've let something languish for 11 months?! :-) Makes me feel better knowing I'm not alone in letting things slip, now and then. Ah. The beauty of being a human creator.
