again with the tutorials

I had this site on my blog a few days ago . As there is a new tutorial every day I may be adding it more often. Today the tutorial is hand piecing. It is a good explanation of the technique. I once knew a prize winning quilters who hand pieced all her quilts, sadly she passed away earlier in the century. She was the lady who taught me how to applique.
This is so cute, I just had to share it with you. A great idea.

 I had a very full day today . We had the upstairs door replaced so the doorman came at 8:30. The nurse was late and while she was here my childhood friend Clairee from Washington state arrived.
We had a good visit and then went for lunch at the White Spot. For dessert there was a blueberry tart with whipped cream. It was delicious. Oh yes we did eat a legendary hamburger first. You know that old saying, Life is uncertain, eat dessert first LOL.
Clairee helping me into the van. Isn't she lovely and lots of fun too. I so enjoyed our visit.
She asked me at lunch if I followed American politics. I do , so we had a good old chinwag about the state of the union and of course solved all the problems LOL.
When I came home the door man was still working on the door but he did get it finished at the end of the afternoon.
After I got home I decided to take the bull by the horns and do some embroidery, I am going to do these little ballerina girls. Ballerina girls is redundant isn't it?  and I did this blue one.
Cute isn't she? These are going to be fun.. I have those 4 trippy little girls too that I want to do too. I wish there were more of them but I'll figure out something. That's the fun of it.

Ah ha sweet Charlotte what a beautiful chapeau for a cloudy day. She's having fun wouldn't you say.
Time for me to go, no nap today so it will be early to bed for me.
Have a great evening everyone!
Buena sera.
