Eliott Stitchers

Before getting to Eliotts this week, I called in to see Jan K and was rewarded with a viewing of her students’ work, which I’ve been given permission to share with you. Prepare to be stunned!

    Wow – Jan K’s students work is stunning – all kudos to Jan – she’s such a brilliant teacher! And I LOVE your fabrics for your auntie’s quilt – soft and gorgeous – I may have to come take some tips from you on how to do “soft and gorgeous” – because I’m always “bright and …..”

    Who are those amazing embroiderers? I am actually scared of birds but those ones are stunning.I am in awe of their work.

    Truly some of the most awesome embroidery work I’ve ever seen. Then you Elliot Girls aren’t too shabby yourselves. And, of course, lunch always looks deliciously yummy.

  5. Really enjoyed seeing those amazing embroideries! What a great teacher. Looks like you had a nice lunch complete with chocolate bunnies! Wishing you a happy Easter.

    That embroidery is out of this world!! I am amazed and trilled to see your pictures!

  7. The embroidery is stunning – I ooohed and aaaahed as I scrolled through the photos!! The little hedgehog is very cute. Excellent sewing from the Eliott girls – I watched the first three episodes when I was sewing on Tuesday and thoroughly enjoyed them – I had forgotten all the ins and outs of the plot, really just remembering the clothes from when I watched it way back on tv.
    Drooling over the food, it’s a diet day!!
