Free Applique Tips

Free Applique Tips

For free hand applique' pattern tips see link near bottom of this page. I recently added a second page with some details for actually doing the applique stitch.


A Different Way -

A new 'design' - actually 3!  Not totally new, 3 of the favorite flowers done in reverse applique and packaged as a set.  You will find it under the Reverse Applique Tab.
A Garden Trio
The Book!!

The Book!!

I could almost call this a miracle.  For those who have been in one of my classes, it is the answer to your requests.  It is the class in written form and as a kind of 'workbook'. The pattern is included - the same one I use in classes. It is not glitzy or fancy.  It is self-published and bound so that you can lay it flat if you want to look at pictures and/or read while you are stitching.  If you have not taken the class, I say it is a great tool for anyone - either to learn how, or to improve, with regard to hand, needle turn applique.  If you find the tips and blog useful, why not just go for (as Dr. Dyer would say) "The Whole Enchalada" and buy the book?!  It's all in there - plus way more!
Just to give you something to smile about while you are here

Just to give you something to smile about while you are here

Yep!  That is my boy Calvin.  Been with me now for over 3 years - wow, time does fly!!  I'm sure sent by my dear Sophie cause she didn't want me to be alone. ^_^
New Year - New Item/Idea

New Year - New Item/Idea

It's a new year and I have a new idea - every now and then(since I can't seem to do anything 'on a regular basis' these days, I will be putting at least one pattern and its associated kit 'on sale'.  Since this is the "Month of Love" - it/they will have hearts included in the design. ^_^
I will post on the FaceBook business page what the current special is. I will enter info here before I post on FB.

Click on Favorite Flowers  in tabs at top.  If you choose to do them like this, you might want to make those horizontal pieces of trellis for the Sweet Pea extend all the way across so it looks like one trellis??? The 3 patterns are available in one package if you choose. The package is on the Favorite Flowers, page 2. You must click on "More Info" to see the picture.


All The News That's Fit To Print

 High Sierra Quilters  - that's the place to come for a class from me!! Right here in Placerville! They are in the same little strip mall as $$ Store and Grocery Outlet - that's on the East side of town, (heading East) get off Hwy 50 at Schnell School Rd., turn right at end of ramp and left at the 3-way stop just a few yards away. It's about in the middle, between Grocery Outlet and $ Store (at 1444 Broadway).  Sooo, if you have been wanting to take a class from me - we can now do that even it it's only you.   Give them a call! 530-622-9990  to request class schedule or an applique class for yourself!  Cost is $35;  pattern included; optional kit for $5    You can pick a day just for you. ^_^ While there is not a class currently scheduled, I am happy to do a one-on-one. Just give them or me a call and we can get it set up!

It is now the long awaited 2018 - longed for by those of us who weren't having such a terrifically great 2017! ^_^  So I wiped this "news slate" clean; however, find myself with not a lot to say to replace all those words once here.  There are a couple vague ideas floating around in my head, with regard to new designs, but nothing has grabbed me such that I simply MUST DO.  We shall see what shows up.  There aren't that many who actually own every single pattern I've ever created. ^_^  So there's still a little something for everyone, if you so choose.

Unlike those of you on the East Coast - we here on the 'left' are having Spring-like weather - sorry.  And, since the rain has left for an extended period, I have been forced to attend to that clearing out task - stuff hidden away in 'off-site' storage for at least 15 years. (OK, probly 20) Here's hoping, if you are in the frigid zone, you are at least warm and dry, and maybe planning your next fabulous project.  I'd be honored to have one of my designs be included. ^_^
And now it's time to prepare for "Show Season"!!  Off we go! ^_^

And that brings me to my wish for all - for a happy, creative, fulfilling and peace, beauty  & love-filled New Year.
