Here's Molly inspecting the haul of free fabric I picked up at the quilt guild meeting. She is going to sort it for me because I have to finish sewing my wool circles for the Sue Spargo class tomorrow. And yes, she came to speak tonight and was wonderful. I also volunteered to take some of her quilts around the room so people could see the quilts up close. (There were a lot of us that volunteered because she brought a lot of samples).
It was quite amazing because as I took it around people noticed and commented on different parts of the quilt. That was an education all in itself.
And now I have to rush off and sew circles. No slow stitching allowed! But here is a parrot I embroidered back in the 70s. It's sewn on the back of a work shirt...quite the rage back then. And yes, the eye and the area surrounding the eye are french knots.
