Jackie Du Plessis has done it again!!! She has offered the opportunity to attend one of her classes online with The Shining Needle Society.

For me, it is perfect. I live in France and cannot go to a class in the US. And when I do go to the US, it is to see my friends. The occasion to attend a class at the same time has never occured.

Moreover, with a busy schedule and an active professional life, the online classes give me the opportunity to work on the project at my own pace.

The project I'm working on is called Thistlewood and it is gorgeous. I wanted to show you the stitching part finished. I love it :-))

I think I will have a new "antique of the future" added to my collection soon ;-)

A short post today, as the Butternut House appliqué is asking to be attached to the sewing case... and I have understood that some of you are looking forward to seeing this project finished ;-)

Until later,


  1. Love your first installment! I've attended her on-line class once before years ago and learned a lot of interesting & beautiful finishing technique. What a great word "antique in the future". That's exactly I feel while stitching. Enjoy your on-line class!

  2. Looks so good David! The colours are striking.
    Jackie is a lovely teacher and laid back too, which suits me just fine!
    I must get mine out, I keep reading the conversations inthe class,sohave to drag myself away from patchwork now:)

  3. Waouh ! les couleurs sont splendides... je vais suivre de près tes avancées, ce projet promet d'être une belle réussite.
    Bonne soirée,
    Des Bisxxx

  4. Thistlewood is looking gorgeous! Enjoy your online class. I agree, it's a great way to fit it into your schedule and not have to travel for a class.

  5. Enjoy your online class David. Your Thistlewood is looking gorgeous.

  6. Hola David ! encore un bien joli projet que tu réalises à merveille et il me semble bien que tu aimes beaucoup cet ensemble de couleurs : violet et vert , non ??
    Je te souhaite une belle fin de semaine,

  7. Great start to this lovely new project! Look forward to the rest.
