Shannon's Busy in the Studio???!!!!
I spent most of yesterday and part of Friday night helping Shannon make some simple tree ornaments for her co-workers. She saw some she liked in the new issue of Quilting Arts Gifts, we changed them a bit, and off she went. Bentlee also got into the action, making a bird to go on her dad's Yankee tree.
Shannon picked fabric from my stash,
cut out the pieces with the templates she made from poster board,
fused the fabric to Timtex, and finished the edges with satin stitch.
Bentlee also learned how to satin stitch--
After decorating the trees and giving the birds button eyes, she put on hanging loops with pearl cotton.
And here are some finished ornaments!!
If it looks like I've gone a bit overboard with documenting this- getting Shannon interested in what I do in my studio has been a bit of an uphill battle. Here's evidence that there may yet be hope!
