HENRIETTA AND OTHER THINGS
These past few days I have been busy appliquing 3 of the Henrietta Whiskers blocks. Henrietta Whiskers was a free block of the month last year from Bunny Hill Designs. I have another ready to applique and all the rest of the blocks are pieced ready to fuse the applique pieces onto them. I have used the blanket stitch applique method which I feel quite comfortable with.
I also finished the bamboo stitchery from Vignette #5 but I am having trouble finding a 5" x 9" canvas to mount it on . Any ideas?
I have been stitching a couple of Gail Pan's pincushions from her Flowers In May designs using Cottage Garden threads which I am gradually collecting because I love them using them.
I have been cutting out and basting hexies for the first 2 borders of my Insanity quilt.
Too many photos? Sorry! Just one more. I love tins and wooden boxes. On the Fabric Frolic we called into an Op Shop and I found this gorgeous tin. It even has a thatched roof with a bird's nest on top!
I would love to know if anyone else is doing Henrietta Whiskers and if you also like tins.
Thanks for popping in.
