Crazy Quilted Needlebook

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of taking a class from Pat Winter(http://gatherings100.blogspot.com) I really wish I knew how to add links right to the name. If you have never checked out her work please do. Pat is a very gracious teacher. She kept saying to take more goodies and trims and such. I have to tell you her studio room is just beautiful since I am hoping to have one soon I just kept looking around at how she had it set up. She also has a lovely home. Even though I had a bit of a cold I could hardly believe that we where there from 9-4 time just flew it was so much fun creating!!
Pat taught Lelia and I how to make needlebook and today I finished mine up:




I had a littl mishap with my finishing when I did not layer it in the right order:(! but otherwise I think it turned out pretty good.
I think I have another hobby to add to my life I am hooked!!
Until next time,
May you be blessed with stitches,
Karol

Karol, it is just beautiful!!! Happy belated birthday. I hope it was a wonderful day for you. How exciting to be getting a new studio. You will have a blast! It was really fun having you and Lelia over. The time did pass so quickly. You must come and play next time. There is a lot more to try, and no need to buy supplies.
Smiles,
Pat

Karol: Your book is fabulous!!! I love your embellishing! Job well done. I don't know what layering mistake you made - but I think it looks stunning.

I haven't picked mine up since our class.

I will get mine finished, tho. I just loved learning the stitches and using ribbons and fancy fibers. What a load of fun.

Pat is indeed a generous person - her studio is fantastic. Eye candy everyplace you look!!! Inspiration surrounds her table & you cannot help getting hooked.

In addition to the CQ, was the VersaCraft ink pad & what a delight that was. Transform a simple trim into a colorful rainbow. I hafta get one of those!!! I think I could do that all day long.

P.S. I sent you an e-mail about hyperlinks and codes. Hope it is helpful.

How lovely! Who cares if it's out of order, that just personalizes it for you. It's still wonderfully crafty and clever. Nice job!
