Always time for Christmas……

Hi Suz,

It is time for Christmas trees to appear again.

Five years ago I stitched your  Large Christmas Tree 2012  (BFC-1220) on a single sheet of balsa wood that was 18″ x 26″ and framed it to a completed size of 20″ x 27″ as a wall hanging.

This year I again used the design to make another wall hanging and during the five years it had grown and needed a 22″ x 30″ piece of balsa wood, framed out to a finished size of 24 1/4″ x 33″ and took on a trimming of lights.

I love your embroidery on Balsa wood – the trees really look great on it.

Tiger Quilt

Tiger quilt made for friend. King size, log cabins are 6″. Sorry about the blurry pic, but hopefully I’ll be able to get a  better one when I can find someone to hold it up for me…(maybe two or three someones)

Thanks for your help on lining up the tiger Suz.

Verona

It’s wonderful Verona! The large embroideries look excellent as a quilt center! And a King size – so much work on that bed 🙂

I’ll send you a photo soon cause I did not have the fibers so did something a little different but actually love.

Completion of Stained Glass Floral Triptych. Don’t think photo does it any real justice. Since I didn’t have fibers, I used a lightly molted batik and iris, gold and a light brown metallic in all of the open areas. It sparkles. I’ll send another pix when completed. Jody

I love what you’ve done in place of the fibers on the Floral Triptych!  Very creative and really pretty.   Suz

Carol’s Eagle

Well, here it is!  I somehow managed to get the very first joining line off just enough to tweet the entire stitch out, but didn’t realize that until the head was put on!  I love it anyway and so will my Dad!!  I just need to give it a good steam press (using a pressing cloth) and add a small border with hanging tags.  Comments today at our quilting group were:  is that a fabric panel?  How real looking!  Beautiful….and of course, Carol – you’re crazy!!!

Maybe I’ll do another one some day when I am not rushed.  Thank you for ALL your help and encouragement.

Sunny’s Beautiful Wall hanging

I got two of these Geisha panels years and years ago from E-Quilter online, and just recently decided to do something with one of them.  Can’t see it in the pic, but I outlined most of the wisteria, flowers, stream and the Geishas and with matching threads.  Then I cross-hatched the black borders and then hand stitched all the Geisha heads and the warriors.  I also used black batting.  Decided since it “could” be reversible I made tabs and used a bamboo plant stake to hang it from.

I’m envious sunny!!!!  I got that same panel way back and mine has not been stitched into anything yet.  This is a beautiful use for it!  I like the balance between the individual designs and the large panel.

Jan’s Owlbert Einstein

From Jan:  I love this design.  I donated this one to a silent auction in support of the arts programs at our local community college.

I asked if I could post him here:

Absolutely.  Before I sent it I went to your BLOG to see all the projects others have made and there wasn’t an Owlbert.  I mounted mine on canvas.  Owlbert got a lot of buzz at the auction and he did well.  Jan

He is just gorgeous Jan – I love the way you have created him.  Suz

Art Deco Ladies Quilt

Hi Suz,

I thought you might like to see the quilt that I have made for my 14 years

old grand-daughter. She chose your designs, and when you put up some

freebies, I thought they would mix in OK with the others. It’s taken me

about 5 months to do this, but I have done other smaller things in between.

I’m quite pleased with it, and I hope she will be too!

Regards, Pat

Connie’s Bags

Here are a couple pictures of my recently-completed bag.  A fellow sewist saw it at the last Embroidery in Motion meeting when I took it for show-n-tell.  She called me a few days later & said she bought the pattern from you because she liked mine so well.   I’m now working on the Kokopelli bag.  I just finished the bag part — very gorgeous.  Now for the lining.  I bought all the threads for that one from you all.  Such gorgeous colors!  The bag will be a gift for my DIL-to-be.  She & my son will be married in September & plan to start a family right away.  So Kokopelli, being a fertility god, will perhaps be of some assistance!

Thanks for great products & greater service!

I hope you have loads of Grandkids by now Connie!!!  Suz
