Hi Helen I've only just joined the quilters group. So still learning.. Love your site n think I can learn so much from you. Thank you Vicki


Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on. Any tips?

Awww......... itx soo cool buddy the pink is looking outstanding in it keep it up................


I love the inside fabric and the outside design of that sewing project. mmm Joining those seams is tricky - maybe you need the join underneath the felt pics so that although they are there they are not as visible (at first look anyway)


i agree ... dont want to hurry things.. as you might run out of things to do (chuckle) looking forward to the pattern launch, as usual just marvelous

Helen ... I love your little needle book and the added Hexy's are lovely. Can't wait for the pattern ... but will be patient :-)

Instead of using the ladder stitch, you should use the blind stitch. If it is done properly, no one can see where the "smile" was.

I am so glad to read that you too can tell where you stitched your opening close. I recently made a Scottie dog and he looks like he was in a dogfight and had to be stitched up. I don't like that I can "feel" the stitching. Luckily his cape hides his "scar". I think this is the same/similar to the mattress stitch used in knit/crochet & it works wonderful for that but not so much in sewing.

    Colourque (R) is a techique I developed and use on many of my projects. It is nothing scientific, anyone can do it, it is meant to be fun and easy to do... it is simply using coloured pencils on fabric to get an applique effect. 'Faux Applique' a comprehensive technique book on the method is due for release late November. Watch this space!
