Let me start off by saying I had a great time last night! Joan and I and Several of us wool applique/rug hooking women were invited to Twila’s to share our love of Maggie and her patterns. Some of us brought some Maggie projects that we or others had made and we had a big show and tell! Twila also shared with us some helpful tips!
In the picture below, this gal made this pattern into a valance! Isn’t that a neat idea?!
I had heard about Maggie’s Book of Days and ever since have been wanting to see one. Twila had hers on display.
Don’t you just love these little Black eyed Susans?!
I took this picture of the backs of some hooked rugs to show you how someone made really nice labels to put on her projects. We all need to do this so that in years to come people will know when and who made them. Doesn’t she do a great job?
Of course there were some yummy refreshments!!
Isn’t this just the sweetest little thing? I have this pattern but haven’t done it yet but seeing it has got me all inspired to get it done!
I was very honored to be asked by Twila a while back if I would give a demonstration on how to make these birds that are in Maggie’s second book. They are very easy to make and you could use them for many things, Christmas tree ornaments, garland, gift tags, table decorations, the ideas are endless.
And looky looky looky what she gave me for doing it…. some scrumptious beautiful wool that she dyed! How sweet is that?!!!!
Twila also showed us this wool coverlet that she had made. I didn’t get a picture of it but it is in Maggies first book. This is the quilt.
She had made it on a old white wool blanket and it was absolutely gorgeous!
It was a very enjoyable evening as is any time spent at Twila’s!
