Are You Stitching Mrs. Beasley's Sampler Quilt?

Vignette magazine Issue 10 is out and already I have seen lots of images of what you have been stitching on the net! Very exciting:

I can't believe that in just a few days some of you have already pieced the first block and are working on the applique and the stitchery:

Hope each of you also enjoy the free postcard included with Issue 10 - Mini Pincushion No. 1. As well as having a lot of fun creating the pincushion, I have also been loving how practical it is too:

While you are stitching your new quilt why not munch on some Chocolate Caramel Nougat Slice from the recipe on page 8. Yummy:

Moved out from my studio (too many other distractions in there!) into the living room. A day on the couch catching up on 'girl t.v.' and working on Block 4 of 'Mrs. Beasley's Sampler'.

'Mrs. Beasley's Sampler' is the next BOTM quilt in Vignette magazine. Block 1 will be appearing in Vignette Issue 10 due out in March.

Here's a sneak peek of when I was working on Block 1:

In the next few days I will post photos of the exact fabrics and threads that I have used right here on the blog incase you need to get purchasing. I have had a lot of fun using 10 different colors of Cosmo stranded embroidery cottons and three divine Cosmo Seasons varigated threads!

Hope you can join the next adventure in Vignette!

Now back to the couch...
