Pam's Pansy

I'm back to my Wooly Flower Sampler. This panel is suppose to have pansys on it and I just didn't like the pattern. So, I've been searching for one that I liked. This one is from Pam Kellogg of "Kitty and Me". She has posted a tutorial on her website. Her's is done with dyed dryer sheets, but I needed to do mine in felt. I need to do some more stitching on the flower, and I have to use the leaves that came with the sampler, because I've already cut those out and used the felt up. So, anyway I think I will like this. Thank you, Pam. If you want to see more of this Sampler go to my Sept. 4 post, I have a picture there of the other blocks I have finished.
I spent pretty much of the last few days watching the Ford Funeral. It was interesting to see all the old guys who's faces I recognize. Don't think I want to hear "Ruffles and Flourishes" or the 21 gun salute again for awhile.
I'm going to work some on Sharon B's. TAST (Take A Stitch Tuesday) project and get that posted. I need to get another notebook. I have an idea of what I will do with this. I will make a notebook of the stitches and put my samples in there and then I'm waiting on some Valdani Varigated Threads and I will choose one and using that as a color guide make up some blocks of plain co tton to embellish with the different stitches. Sounds good for now anyway.

I love your work! I looked back in your September post and that is going to be so lovely when you are done. Your cq is awesome too. I am practicing my stitches for the TAST. This is all a new experience for me cause I have never done these stitches before. I plan on using my Printed Treasures fabric for the inkjet printer and putting the type of herringbone stitches I will be doing and leave enough space to where once I printed off the type of stitch and thread used then I can actually make the stitches on the fabric. Then once I am done I plan on making it into a Journal Quilt. Perfect size since the journal quilts are 8 1/2 x 11. That's my plan but everything is subject for change.

That looks great. I love Pam's designs, and this pansy looks so good in the felt, too!
