If you live near here you have to come next year!!!

Today I took a few pics during class…both classes so far were awesome!!! Wonderful Ladies all willing to learn all my secrets!FullSizeRender 5FullSizeRender 3IMG_3744 2IMG_3742 3IMG_3743 2

Everyone is all fused down and ready to stitch!!! Did anyone recognize Janet here???? Do you read her blog? http://roguequilter.blogspot.com

Janet brought me her mini of my APQ Stitch along quilt.  These blocks are 3″!!! It was so awesome to see it in person as well as Black Little Buds!!!I WANT THEM BOTH!!!  I want Janet to enter this little quilt in Paducah!!! Go to her blog and comment that it deserves to be there…Those little white squares are 1/4″!

  3. Is anyone else not able to get to Janet’s blog? When I click on the link it says that there is no such blog….

  4. I wandered through your classroom for a few minutes on Thursday so I could say hi to Janet and see everyone’s projects – such a great group of gals working on a great project!

  5. Oh that all looks like such fun. Love those trees and the crescent moon. Hope I can find one of your retreats to attend!

  6. Hi Lisa, your class looks wonderful. So nice to see everyone stitching and to hear you’re having fun! I missed signing up for your stitchers gatherings class while you were in CA recently, and I’m bummed I’ll miss you in WI in Dec… when you’ll be in CA, Lol. Maybe I’ll see you at Road in Jan. 😊 BTW how about some pics of your grand baby? Keep stitchin! Hugs, Jakey

  7. Nice try, Lisa. : )
    Luckily, since my blog name is misspelled, the link has not worked and I have not been hounded to comply.
    Loved class, and having the chance to work under your tutelage again. You are the best teacher out there, you know. I’m practicing my stem stitch, but I’m still not sure I am doing it correctly. I’m such a remedial student.

  8. I tried to register for the rogue quilt we from the link.
    Got a reply that it doesn’t exist.
    Just a FYI so it can be remedied.
    Thanks in advance.

  9. I tried to do the rogue quilter blogs and got a message that it doesn’t exist.
    Just FYI so that it can be fixed
    Thanks in advance

  10. I see me!!! Loved your class Thursday….I’ve got one scene done plus the snowmen!!! I love it! I’m ready to order scissors and want to be sure I order the same Dovos you had in class…can you help me figure out which ones they are??? Also need thread and a ruler .. I think I’ve got the bug!!!

    1. The 5″ Dovo Scissors would be the best ones to use for wool appliqué. Please call the Shop and the ladies there would be happy to help you with all your other questions. thank you 920-722-7233
