Little Stealer

Look at this cheeky squirrel stealing the goodies from the fat ball bird feeder! The articulated acrobat works with perseverance to get what was not meant for him ...

German Incense Smoker



Fortunately, we do not have to rely on such virtuous gymnastics to receive something nice. Sometimes simple downloading is sufficient! At the beginning of the Advent season a free pattern is available for the German Incense Smoker.

Whether standing solo on a placemat, or in combination with pine trees or the Church of Seiffen - the little guy is a quickly-stitched decoration.

If you have a little spare time, check out the webpage of Site in English Superior Threads. The American manufacturer of high quality sewing and quilting thread also runs a Site in English School of Threadology. The seminars offer useful factual information about all aspects on a variety of different threads as well as their use and dealing with problems. In addition, there are extensive pages on Site in English specific topics. You can certainly find a lot of useful tips and ideas!

Inspired by the National Parks

US National Parks in Quilts

USA has more than 50 National Parks. Not all of them are as well-known as the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone NP, but each park protects a spectacular landscape. The national Park Service, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary, ensures that nature is protected and that visitors can explore via secure paths. A very important task. For the anniversary, many quilters created a quilt covering one aspect (landscape , flora or fauna) for each of the parks.

My topic is the Rainforest in Olympic National Park in the northwestern United States. My quilt is a vertically hanging landscape quilt - paper pieced of course. Please understand that I cannot show pictures before the book about the quilts and the parks has been published. This will be the case in the early summer of 2016.

Information about the National Park quilts and the planned exhibitions can be found on Site in English these pages. A small glimpse of some quilts can be seen there as well.

Next Exhibit:
January 21 - 24, 2016 at the Site in English Road to California (entire collection),
Ontario, California
