Members of the Mt. Stars Quilters Guild came together to learn new techniques from my book,  "Embellishing With Felted Wool".  They collaged felted wool and embellishments into eye catching projects!

This piece began with a simple birds......the addition of other motifs make it a complete, integrated design.

Quilter's are always so clever....Jo is taking a coffee break.....the lack of a coffee stirrer didn't faze her......her scissors worked just as well!

So what could be a more appropriate subject for her project?  Yup, a embellished scissors the dragon fly she created!

A small purse is a doable class project (pattern can be found in my new book, "Embellishing With Felted Wool").  This design will feature embroidered & beaded stems, and multicolor embellished flowers.

This bouquet of flowers will be tied together with a button bow.

The Paisley design on this table runner will offer Gerri lots of opportunities to show off her new found beading skills!

After my lecture today, I'll be heading to Eugene, OR for a short visit with my brother and his family......Can't wait!!
