Sue Spargo tree quilt

I have been busy today updating the shop and sending out the shop newsletter. If you haven't signed up, you can just see the link on the right. Promise I will only send you Two Little Aussie Birds info!

Anyway, I know a lot of you would like to see the work I did on my recent Sue Spargo workshop. I had SO much fun, and I am totally a wool addict now! How come I didn't know about this magical material before? And what a way to use all those embroidery stitches that can be so unfashionable right now, but seem to look right at home on Sue's designs.
First of all, I thought I would share some photos of Sue's beautiful samples that she bought with her: 
{the table with all her little samples}

{the inside of a beautiful greta needle roll}
{One of the signature birds}

{Close up of one of the many leaf samplers}
{Sue's tree quilt. 50 birds for every of her years, and 4 butterfly's for her children}

{Close ups of the tree quilt}

So, I guess you would like to see my version? I'm a long way from finishing, but have made a good start.

{lots of beads, embroidery and stitching will make up the quilt}

You can also read Sue's blog for some of the projects the other girls in the class did, and a mention of my friend and I who went! :)

Till next time,
