In Monday's post, I told you about being snuggled up under my new alpaca throw while I stitched.
Well this is what I was stitching! This is another Folk-Art Fusion piece I have just finished!
Folk-Art Fusion is a combination of hand stitching, machine quilting and wool applique.
Here's a close up of the primitive stitched border. I use my Valdani 3 strand floss for this and the wool applique stitching.
Several of you have asked about a release date for my book, Briarside Lane. (I couldn't reply to you as you are "no-reply comment bloggers and have no email address) As of today, it looks like it will be ready by the end of May. There will be 15 patterns in the book. I'm so excited!!
I'm still toying with the idea of making it an e-book as well as a printed book. I know that so many people have Kindle's and ipads now. I have to admit that I'm still kinda old school and I really love the feel of real book in my hand.
What are your thoughts on e-patterns and books? Which do you prefer?
