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.
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
A sunny sunflower!!
And now there are 3 that can be used together!
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.

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.
So, here we are, halfway thru March!! And I find myself still in an "artist's block"! Nothing to do but wait it out. And, yes, it could result in my 'retirement' - at least from shows. I will keep this webpage for as long as I can still type! ^_^ There are still some vague ideas afloat in this old brain. ^_^ Yes, I did kinda just repeat myself. ^_^ It happens (frequently). ^_^
And that brings me to my wish for all - for a happy, creative, fulfilling and peace, beauty & love-filled New Year.
