Long Weekend Project

I always imagine that with a long weekend I'll sew up a storm. It never turns out that way. Somehow I'm distracted by a hundred other little tasks that need attention.

I was pleased to have made this wallhanging from a design by Gail Pan. Gail's design included a stitched house but I changed that to applique.

As promised here is a picture of the paisley quilt.

Hope your weekend was a restful one.

Happy Stitching


  1. The paisley quilt looks fantastic!!
    I can see why it would be hard to give it away.

  2. All that loveliness is awesome!!!!!
    You knock me out with your wonderful needle work!!!
    I managed to sew a wee bit too but not nearly on this level!!!!!

  3. Love the applique on the house. Wow, the paisley quilt is magnificent! Hope your brother realizes how special he is!

  5. I love your little wall hanging.
    It's adorable.
    Ann, your paisley quilt is beautiful. I love the blue fabrics. Blue is my favorite color. I have often thought about making a quilt that is predomintly blue.
    Now, tell me how you find the time to do all this beautiful work.
    I have found that there just aren't enough hours in the day.

  6. Lovely effect with the applique Ann...and great warm colours. The paisley quilt is stunning...I'm sure it will be treasured...Have a great week...Dzintra♥x
