Dazzling Diamonds Stitch Along Coming Soon

 If you have my Dazzling Diamonds book...then dig it out cause I'll be dedicating the month of October to a "re-do" of this quilt. So, if you have not made it yet; and want to do a small wall size CQ quilt go pull it off the shelf and collect your fabrics. 

Any color combination you like will work. I will not be doing another Autumn version (as photo shows above)...so you can see different colors.


Happy Rooster


I've been working outside of the crazy quilt world lately and totally enjoying some collage quilting "of sorts". You know me, I used part of the pattern idea...then did my own thing.

Have six different roosters fused into place now, ready to begin piecing this together. Will post a photo when the top is done and ready to quilt.

Hope everyone is having a day worth "crowing" about! HUGS!

Small Ballerina Doll


Just got back from Mississippi where I had a wonderful time with a group of lovely ladies from the Jackson Stitchery Group...we had a fun time working on some small cloth dolls together. If you are anywhere near Jackson or Meridian, MS...look these gals up; they really know how to enjoy their rug hooking, embroidery, pottery, etc.

These dollies have boobs...but, could be done without these as a more traditional style ballerina doll. We painted the shoes and used tulle for the skirts. The hair is a combination of many strands of various yarns/fibers/ribbons. 

Attaching links to the handouts which I've uploaded to GoogleDrive; just in case any of you might like to try this pattern out.
