I used to be very good about posting show n tell from the classes I teach. This past year - well, I did NOT do a good job at all. I went back to my blog and noticed that I posted show n tell ONCE last year for this class. Yikes!
I will try to be better this year? So far, I don't think I'm doing great either. Let's see what we can get done this week.
A hand full of students took on the Little Sew and Sews which is a super cute project, but a lot of work - a LOT of applique.

I didn't want you to think you missed out on something, so I went back through my pictures and found some of the missing photos. I have a feeling that there were some months that there were no photos to take. There could be one or two on my phone but I think you're going to get the idea of how it went.

I'm not going to put names in - I don't remember them all.
|This mouse looks happy!|
|Whimsical stitching around the edges of the applique|
That is one huge pile of fabric and this mouse looks lost. Do you know why?

|Empty shopping list|
|Look - I found the perfect ribbon in my stash!|
|Tug a war - this person wasn't brave enough to cut the ribbon yet|
|Cut the ribbon and let's hope it matches!|
|I'll take some of the lace that she has|
|What about me? I want some lace too!!!|

As I mentioned, there was a LOT of applique in this quilt and I know people (including myself) are still working on it. But it was loads of fun. Check out the website for With Needle and Thread. There is a video of when Nancy was on America Sews Creatively (in the TIPS sections). It's pretty interesting and shows how she shades her designs with inks. Adds a cool effect if you're into that kind of artistic thing.
On that note, I'd better get myself organized for the day. It should be a quilting day, but it's going to be a sewing day. I've got a guest coming! I'll tell you more tomorrow.
Have a super day!
