Those dark blue lines need to be stitched in preparation for part 2 which has already been released and I need to find four golden beads which will fit in the pink jessica stitches. I do have the Aurum bicones which should go there, but I'm not sure I like them. Maybe something round would be better. I did the same for Victorian Garden and I like how it looks.
I did a needleturn demo at a quilt show in Holland, in a beautiful church, Pieterskerk in Leiden. Alas I do not have any pictures, because I was too busy explaining to all the eager ladies who want to learn how to do needleturn applique. It was my first time and I enjoyed it very much.
Edited to add: Rennie kindly sent me this picture of my 'booth' at the quilt show. Thank you, Rennie.
On the right you see Jacqueline of Samsara Quilting in the middle Rennie herself and on the left you see me, looking rather puzzled by what my visitor is trying to tell me :o)
Now it is time to pick up one of my quilting/patchwork projects once again. They have been sadly neglected since the show last Friday.Thanks for your lovely comments.

My first block 4: Flowers for Me of Heart's Desire by Esther Aliu is finally done. As far as I can get it done before the centre is pieced, because some of the leaves go onto the next blocks.
This is Minty, the fourth of our pussycats. She is very shy and frightened of the camera, so it is really difficult to take her picture. She was called 'Minty' by the people of the cat shelter because of the white patch (peppermint) on her breast. She has come along so much since we first adopted her almost six years ago.
