Stitch 'n' Bitch - 9 Nov 07

We had a great night...again. Ate too much & didn't get enough stitchin' done, but we enjoyed ourselves. I finished stitching the binding on my Xmas wall hanging and that was about it. Now I just have to finish the decorations. Will put up a pic when it is all completed.
These are my friends Janita & Pam.
Jacko the monkey just wanted to see want Janita was up to.

We have all been doing patchwork for about the same length of time...2 years give or take. Janita is the most talented & does folk art painting & will soon be teaching beginners classes at her local community centre. Janita also decorates cakes, makes dolls & works with polymer clay. These are just a few of her talents.

The Japanese Geisha doll was made by Janita in a class at Cowes which we all attended. My doll has probably been shuffed in a cupboard somewhere. If I ever find it I might put up a pic.

The cage is home to two pixies which Janita made from polymer clay and dressed...they are so cute. They also have a tendancy to runaway from home, hence the cage.

Janita's current quilt project, which she has now decided to make a queen size.

Janita & I are both very impressed with Pam. She has finished several quilts and the quilt pictured below is the largest she has attempted to date. She is currently hand quilting it. Go Pammie!! It is to be a gift for her brother. Pam is the one peaking out from the side of the quilt 'cos she is too short to hold it up to its full length. That's OK us shorties have to stick together. Pam is also quite good had impersonations...see her Cousin It below.
