I just received these photo's from friend Terri. She is working on her Coronet. Just look at her hexi-ruler work! She is using a high loft poly batting and it makes the hexi's very deminsional but it is a little tricky to work with because of the loft. Looks pretty darn good to me. Thanks Terri!!!

So, a bit of this and that. Well, I have sewn essentially nothing for the last week, I am supposed to be recuperating. I am getting pretty restless. I want to get back to work. Know what I mean? If I had been more organized this morning I would have remembered my camera for today's Ladies of the Cloth gathering.
|At our Tuesday gathering we were discussing ways to mark our quilts, use stencils, papers etc. I tried this out some time ago and plan to use it again. I drew the lines from a rose stencil on the Press 'n Seal with a Sharpie, stuck it to the fabric and quilted the lines. Tears easily, didn't gum up the needle, at all. This is also highly recommended by Nicci Brazail as a top stabilizer for machine embroidery.|
