This was the workshop we had last Saturday... The technique is fabric weaving and I made a mug mat for my project. Some of the girls who did the project at the workshop...I plan to make a larger piece probably with more Christmas fabric. And I am still working on my Garden Party Blocks..I have to start thinking how I am going to put them all together...

Around the Table
Everything went well in making this project but at the very end of the machine quilting I found I had made a mistake. It was too late to correct it and I was not about to throw the piece away....
Now for the challenge I am extending to you.... can you tell me what the mistake is?
Visit Karen's website http://www3.ns.sympatico.ca/sewkaren/patterns.htm to see the original pattern without the boo boo . Leave me a comment that you discovered the mistake and e-mail me your answer.
Do not give the answer in your comment post.
Your name will go in the hat for a draw and on September 27th.. my birthday. I will send the lucky winner a pattern of the Around the Table by Karen Neary.

Elaine came to sew on Friday and I think we chatted more than we sewed...
I did get a Little cushion made for the Guild..
and she made napkins to match. Beautiful... She made this for a friend she visited this summer in Boston.
You can purchase this pattern here and others she has designed..
For my weekly projects I did get all my stippling and quilting done
Although the weather is not fall-like I feel that fall is in the air and with it comes the coziness of wood burning and long evenings. That motivates me to do some hand quilting.
So I have a little lap quilt ready in the hoop..
It took me all of last fall and winter to do one that size, so I imagine it will be my 2011/2012 quilting project.. I am a novice at handquilting but I enjoy it and want to learn the right way of doing it. There are amazing hand quilters in the guild and I do hope to get some pointers from them.
And Monique DIL and Teacher)
Happy Sewing ..
