Elephant Quilt

Our elephant quilt is now complete. It was a lot of fun adding rhinestones to the elephants.

The designs are in 3 sizes: for the 5″x7″ hoop, the 8″  hoop and the 8″ x 10″ hoop.

I have written instructions for 2 quilts: the first quilt uses the 8″ designs; the second quilt uses the 5″x7″ designs.

You may wonder why there is an elephant in the bottom border of quilt 2. I ran short of the border fabric!

In the Slideshow below, you can see the elephants designs as sewn and some of them with rhinestones added.

You can find the designs for sale at KennyKreations

Rangoli Designs

I love these Rangoli designs. Rangoli Circle 1

Rangoli is a traditional decorative art of India. It is usually done by women, using dry or wet granulated rice or dry flour, to which vermillion, turmeric and other natural colors are added. The designs are painted on the floors of living rooms and courtyards during Hindu festivals.

I have stitched these designs on black fabric, using metallic gold thread – they look wonderful.

You can download the first rangoli circle design here to try it. I hope you enjoy stitching it.

You can find all of our Rangoli Collections here.  Rangoli Squares is one of our featured designs in October – 10% discount.

KennyKreations Update

I am just in the process of updating our blog. As you can see, nothing has happened here in 2016.

Family has come first and it has been a busy, even chaotic year for us.

Christine and Neil have moved to Riverton on the Queensland/New South Wales border, where Neil is again working in IT. Christine is managing a beautiful home stay property, Dumaresq Homestead. It caters for 12 people at a time and I think it would make a great venue for a sewing workshop. I’m keen to plan some workshops for next year.

Graeme has been all over the country side supervising the building of storage facilities – Melbourne, Sydney, Yatala. Most of the time I have gone with him and spent some time relaxing and visiting family.

In September I was hospitalized for 10 days with a heart attack.

  I have been home now for four weeks, and have just had a very positive report from the doctor. I am feeling much better and much more positive again.lk2

I have a number of designs that are complete, but without written instructions. I am planning to work steadily through them and get them up on the website, hopefully before Christmas. I have done some lovely Bulgarian designs that I plan to use for reversible table runners.

I have also been playing with dyeing, painting, screen printing, stamping, rubbing, stencilling on fabric, then adding embroidery. Lots of fun.

I will try to get a design up for you in the next few days.

Cheers, Lyn
