The inspiration for this ribbon tree ornament came from the one given to me and each member of our Tri-County Quilt Guild at our Christmas party. They were a part of our place settings and were made by committee members of the guild.
Hop over to my craft blog for a tutorial on how I made 16 of these for a Christmas party.
It's been a while, four months to be exact, since I went anywhere near my sewing machine. That may be because even though it's been a rainy summer, there were stretches of really good weather and there's always a lot to do and admire in the garden.
At our last Quilt Guild meeting before summer break, the guild needed someone to take on the responsibility for their newsletter which is published once every two months. No one seemed interested in taking on the responsibility and, being one of the newest members and never having seen their newsletter, I was a little unsure of what the post involved.
Mouse Pincushion with Matching Scraps/Thread Catcher
This duo was made last April for a DQ Challenge project. Links were provided in that post for making the pincushion. I've since received a request to share the directions for the thread catcher, so here it is.
Congratulations, Ranju Gandhi! You have been crowned "The Mistress of Quilts" for submitting the highest number of entries to the 2013 linky parties on this site. As mentioned in my previous post, there will be no more linky parties, so all the entries for each participant were added together and Ranju won with 20 entries! She will receive a surprise package in the mail. This has been so much fun, thanks to all who participated. Wishing all of you years & years of quilting pleasure. Cheers!
