Craft Napa Art Retreat 2017, Quilt Binding, Embroidery Stitches....

Satin stitch and outline embroidery work on my kit.

Binding sewn on 'Piece of Cake for Penny' quilt.
This is what it will look like after binding hand stitched down on back.

What's Up Thursday!!!!

I sewed the binding onto the front of 'Penny's Piece of Cake' quilt and I'll be hand stitching that down on the back. Love, love turquoise!

Satin stitch has been finished on my embroidery kit project. Now I have outline stitch and french knots and lazy daisies to work.

Craft Napa 2017 is open for registration and I'm signed up! I'm taking one of Jane LaFazio's
classes, Monoprinted Art Quilts. I'm looking forward to that, big time. 
Lots of inspiration and beautiful surroundings.

We have a lot to be thankful for today. Make a difference; starts with a smile!


  1. Thank you for your good advice - yes, let's start the day with a smile. It is easy when one looks at your colourful work. Turquoise is a colour that will always add a bit of pizzazz, and is a good choice for the binding; it frames the quilt well.
    Have fun with your next quilt journey - mono printed quilts, that will be a difference from your multicoloured ones!

  2. Lovely colourful stitching once again. Curious to know - are you stitching on denim?

    1. Thank you.
      Yes, the denim came in the kit.

  3. Beautiful stitching, as always and great colours too. Mono-printed quilts sounds interesting - I hope you'll show us what you get up to.

    1. Thank you! Yes, I'll post results, Jane LaFazio's classes and style are full of fun and color.
