Then of course  I had to do my FMQ for today.

I drew the design free hand some time ago directly to the fabric...so I don't have this one on file...but altered it a bit as I went.  Its a bit lopsided!
The colour is far brighter than it actually is.
I used an old gold coloured silk thread with Aurofil in the bobbin.
Now I shall have to have another think as to what I will do next :)

I hope your day has been special.

Great design! ♥

I really appreciate the way you list the type/size thread in the top and the bobbin...it is great for us "newbies"- I recently bought some 12wt and I noticed the needle size is suggested on the end of the spool! (Sulky, and King Tut 30wt too) I did start practicing...now will mark my Cube background black fabric- Sandy

Hi Joan.
Thanks for visiting my blog. It's good to hear and see all that is made in the quilting world. It gives me inspiration. I like your blog, and I like what you make with all the different threads.

Hi this is a return visit. It is so nice to have new people stop by.
I'm sure we will see more of each other once I'm actually back home in Sydney . The only stitching I have here is for the klosjes.

The BBQ looked fun not sure about the logging.
Talk again Terry

Another fantastic sample. I must get the books and really have a go, your stitching is looking divine. Do you match the colour thread in the bobbin to the top thread?

Your patterns alway intrigue me. This one is lovely too. I think you need to publish some of them :o)

Hi Joan, What pencil or pen do you use when you draw directly on the fabric. I'm looking for something other than a plain mechanical pencil.
