FLATFOLDS

Ann,... Adriana[my Mom].... Kathy,.... Angie,.... Barb.[our guider through the making]

This a picture of the group of us that got together at Ann's to finish up our flatfolds. Obviously I'm not in the picture because I took it but if you go to Ann's Blog she has posted some too.
She actually named all of the pieces. I just know who did what, not what the charts are called..Again She has that info.

Kathy did the Boo and the PS Angie did the witch.
These are the 3 pieces I did...oh I love them.
L..to R Mom's ...Barbs....Ann's
A sideways view. This a very nice way to finish because it stores so well. Mostly these are seasonal things so need to be put away.

I want to thank Ann for her hospitality and Barb for her assistance..the other ladies for there company.

Kathy and Angie are on their way to AZ soon so they will be missed. Our group is just not the same without them !!!!!!!

Now I need to get back to my stitching and I will drop by the blogs to say hello to everyone first.
Take care and stitch with happy fingers!

These all look fabulous! Your witch and punkies turned out so cute. Great job! It is so wonderful to be in a group of ladies who share a passion. I am so thankful that I am able to host a quilt group in my home and also have other handwork friends I get together with regularly. It is so inspiring!

Hugs ~

Beautiful!!!! Wow. I love them all, but I have one favourite, and it happens to be one of yours: the smaller one on the right. I don't think I've ever seen that design and it's fabulous.

Hello Beatrice, what a nice idea, those flatfolds! I must keep that in mind when making seasonal things, thanks for the tip! They all look beautiful and how nice to see a picture of 'the fellowship' again!

Take care & hugs, Carolien

Hi Beatrice!

Oh Boy...Oh Boy!!! Those flat
folds are all just beautiful.
I love this method of finishing.
It really shows off the stitching
and you can appreciate the backing
fabric as well. You all must have
had a wonderful day getting together
and working on these. At least
judging by the grins on your faces
in the picture. :)

Those are spectacular pictures
of the Autumn sky as night closes
in. What amazing colour. It's as
if the sky was on fire. Who needs
tv???

You've been making great progress
with Bling and it surely won't be
too much longer before you're done
with her and ready to see her
framed.

The Lizzie Kate piece is also
looking fantastic. Love the bright
colours and the "key" words that
make up this design. It'll make a
nice addition to your Christmas
decor. And Lizzie Kates are such
fun projects. Pure stitching
pleasure.

Cheers!

All of them look wonderful, and what fun to do them as a group. Flatfolds do store so nicely, they make for a great holiday finish.
