She often tries to steer my pencil as I sketch out a possible design, be it block, layout or FMQ.
AppliquéingShe parks her butt on freshly appliquéd blocks, helping to secure the layers.
|Much to her exasperation, she was removed (more than once) from said appliquéd block|

This past year saw her work with wool, both knitting and appliqué
|She quite liked it! Thanks to Sue's comment below, here is the link to the kit I bought, on sale right now for $11CA. The pattern only is available here. And, if you prefer to crochet, Kalurah has the same cowl kit for crochet, also on sale.|
Writing poststhis very one, as a matter of fact!
Pattern Writing!We did it this year! And she helped...

Calling meto leave my sewing when it's time to eat
Be sure to take advantage of Craftsy's Early Black Friday (like seriously...I know...eye-roll)...but there really are some terrific deals again, and if you're like me, you wait for your faves to go on sale. Did you know they carry quilt batting and it's 30-40% off right now? Um, can you believe there are some quilt kits for CA$27 or US$21?? Check out several from Timeless Treasures like this Tonga Treats "Next Move" one I particularly love. Apologies for poor quality images (snagged them off Craftsy) but you get the idea.
and I believe I just have to give one of the Blueberry Park fat quarter stacks a home. At CA$57, US$44, (50% off), that is a pretty sweet treat. There are many many more, but don't be like me, and put them in your cart and 'think about it' (aka forget)....only to find they disappear because they are no longer available, waaah, or you remember about them on Monday and the sale is over...waaaah again. Might have personal experience there.
As always I thank you SO MUCH if you click through to Craftsy on my links in this post or on the sidebar. I do get a small commission on sales and on classes; if you are interested in how to become an affiliate yourself, shoot me an email. And always remember, if you don't buy through me, that is fine, but please choose a favourite blogger to buy through since we are the ones who help spread the word. I would not endorse anything I haven't used or bought and I have been very very pleased with every single thing I have got, supplies and fabric and classes-wise from them. They also have excellent customer service. :-)
