Hi Kath, I had to put some new old transfers away so I thought it was a good time to look for the one you wanted. I may stitch that one again for myself. The two I made were gifts. Well, enjoy the pattern and have a Happy Holiday! You're going to love seeing the catalogs. They're both really fun to look at!
Hi Kath, it took me awhile to find this pattern. My collection of vintage transfers is quite extensive! Anyway, I found it, I scanned it and I posted it to my blog today. Hop over and grab it and let me know when you stitch it so I can see a photo of your piece! Happy Christmas and Enjoy!
Hi Kath, I'm happy to dig it out and scan it for you. If you don't hear from within a week of New Year's, please drop me a message and remind me. I have a lot of vintage transfers including some new ones to put away so I need to get my boxes out anyway but I want to do that for you asap so I don't forget!
Hi Kath, finally saw your message to me regarding the photo design. That's a vintage Vogart transfer from my collection. I've actually stitched it several times. The next time I have my transfer collection out, I'll scan it and email it to you. It may take me awhile to find it as my transfer collection is quite large!
Thanks for your comment on my blog and transfer book. Don't hold your breath until you see me stitching one of those designs; you'd be long gone before I do! I just had to add the book to my stash on the basis of there might be something in there that I will need one day...LMAO
Couldn't help but jump in on your applique coversation. I have one of Mary Sorenson's patterns also. Love it. Have you every tried the lightweight interfacing method of applique (I use the non-fusible kind). It works great for small pieces (not too tiny). You put right sides together, sew all around, slit the back and turn it, press and then applique it into place. I don't use this for everything, just sometimes.
Kathleen....I saw your comment on Marja Visser's quilt. Don't practice your hand quilting...just take the plunge and quilt something. Begin with a small piece. Quilting on an actual project is all the practice you need. You will see before your very eyes, how it gets better and better and better. I, too, love hand quilting, but do my fair share of machine quilting as well.
Hi Kath! Thanks so much for the kind comments on my hardanger cushion/pillow. The pattern you can buy from here, but you'll notice that I changed the flower colour (to Anchor multicolour #1344) and the beads to Mill Hill #00252 and a turquoisey colour, the # of which I'm afraid I can't recall!) and ditched the outer row of green blobs!!=)
There are about 808 beads on this monster, so be aware that you'll need a lot of patience with it. It can be quite hard to line up correctly too as the chart is a quarter one that you rotate etc. Still, if you've done a lot of larger hardanger pieces, you'll be used to that OK. Let me know if you buy and stitch the design. I'd be interested to see if and how you adapt it.
