last details

So here is the final sample scarf. It is quite simple with only decorative top stitching and fringe at the bottom for the sophisticated look.

And the final beading on the art quilt and finished gift box.

this year's scarves

Just so you don't think that I've been sitting around twiddling my thumbs. Here are samples of the scarves that I'll be teaching as the end of the year project for our quilt club.

ribbon cup cake pin cushions

Here they are. Ribbon cupcakes. They are made completely from ribbons with a very intricate ribbon flower rose on the top and then embellished with a beaded hat pin. We have a person who has a very wonderful ribbon store along with antiques and other goodies. A 6 bay garage full of wonderful stuff. She pleats the ribbon to look like cupcake papers and teaches her cupcake making. They are BEAUTIFUL. Here is my interpretations from her classes.

needle felted gnome

Maurine Adrezen taught us how to needle felt a figure this week. We had a 2 day class making our gnomes. It was soooo fun and relaxing. Maurine is a good hostess, too. She not only taught the class in her wonderful studio but served us lunch both days. We are very lucky to have her among us. So here is my first needle felted figure. I love him and have to make another.
