The Ladies Are Almost Finished

Rina has been working on her girls.  Most of the stitching around them is completed.  Just a few more things to do and then on to hanging it in her sewing room. Yes, she still has to work on their faces.

Stone Art

Renee has been making what I call stone art.  You place tiny stones on to a sticky design.  It does make some lovely pictures.  Renee saw a design that she liked so she made what she felt was as close as possible to the original design.  It is turning out really nice. I'm sure one of the ladies will comment on what this craft is really called.

A New Quilt By Ruth

Ruth has started a new quilt.  It has blocks that are 3 different sizes.  It's just getting started but I can already tell it's going to be terrific.

A Quilted Project

Sara has made a cover for a Kenmore mixer.  She used fabric that was already quilted so it was quick and easy to make.  Sara did quilt the orange fabric that you see.What a great idea.

New On Design Wall

This pattern is the X's and O's pattern that has been shown on many blogs.  You can make it with any size squares.  I used 10" color squares and 4" white squares.

Somethings The Ladies Made

Rina started a wall hanging.
 Shifra made a pillow
 Sara made a zipper bag. She was even able to complete it after being attacked by the sewing machine needle.  Check out the bandaged finger.
Ruth completed the binding on her latest quilt.
 Susan did some hand quilting and assisted everyone on making coasters and fabric bags.
Renee and Miriam made place mats.  Unfortunately I didn't get pictures of everything because of camera problems (ME).
