Took this picture 6 times and it's still blurry!!!!! sorry!!!!

3.Lay out some wool rovings and begin.
8. After I get the tree in place, I go back to the wool rovings and put some leaves on the tree.
This is the beginning of another card where I sketch out what I want on the pellon and go from there.
Punch, Punch, Punch...

This miniature I call Umbrella Girls.. It measures
6 1/2" x 8" and the blocks measure 1 1/2".
I tried to get the picture larger and lost the first post!!!!
The blocks are hand appliqued with a blanket stitch.
I made a full sized quilt which I have on the bed in the guest bedroom. I had a quilt my gramma made like this, but when it got worn I got rid of it!!!! I was young and did not know anything about quilting then...Oh how I wish I still had it! When I made the bed sized one I was thinking of Gramma the whole time hoping she would forgive me!!!

The leader of the group Normajean Brevik has just published an apron pattern called" No Strings Attatched" and this was the pattern we used for the trade. You can get her pattern here.
The apron is made from a tea towel and because my towel was quite large, I used part of it to make pockets...... what is an apron without pockets!!!!
I used my embroidery machine to embellish with a few Xmas motifs....
I hope my trade partner likes it.
