So much to share !

Well i had a great week last week ! i was taking an art quiltlet course with Heather Stewart and it was fabulous ! Heather is not only a wonderful teacher she also is super funny with a wonderful sense of humour ! i hope to take more classes with Heather in the very near future ! These are my quiltlets i made for each lesson she gave us,  i still have to finish the purple one.  The purple one is made from all the scraps and thread from everyone in the class we all through in our scraps onto water soluble then it was machine quilted and dissolved and once dry it was cut into small pieces, one for each person as a mememto of the class.

My next thing to share is this wonderful gift i received from Judy at http://judysfabrications.blogspot.com/ honestly if you havn't visited Judy's blog then go check out her wonderful creations !!

I have also managed to make a book cover from the painted lace i made earlier in the year and at the same time i made a postcard to send to Judy which has some of the same techniques and i also made another felted postcard .


And last but not least i bought a new machine to take to classes well i actually bought a small janome but had some issues with it and so i exchanged it for this little brother 900d which also does embroidery it is so cute, i think i will have fun with the embroidery when i figure it out ! well thats it a lot to share but now i feel all caught up lol ! Ok have to finish my postcard and ATC today and get them in the mail !


  1. Your work is stunning and so inspirational.

  2. Michelle your quiltlets are so wonderful and your so lucky to be able to do this....as for Judy's creations they are so stunning and im lucky to have had a lovely gift from her too....love the look of your sewing machine x

  3. Michelle, what a great time you had. Love the quiltlets, they are all wonderful, but I think my favourite is the purple one [made from the scraps........]. Love the sewing machine, and hope it gives you hours of pleasure. WOW, didn't your painted lace come up well in that book cover. Postcards are great, Judi's gifts second to none. My goodness, you were correct, so much to see and take in, thanks!!!

  4. Dear Michelle, your quiltlets are really works to be proud of and get you excited.They'll be a record of the techniques you learned.
    Thanks for the "rap"!!
    How is your poor hand? I have only just read about it.
    Shopping..what can I say. Glad you had lots of fun!!

  5. Michelle, The workshop sounds wonderful. Your quiltlets turned out beaut and I really love the purple one too and the idea of using up everybody's cut off threads really appeals. Look forward to seeing the finished article. Dianne.
