Next I machine embroidered the piece with metallic thread in the circles that I always seem to do. I was going to fold it in half for a book cover but need to use the whole thing as is and just make another for the back.

I had made a long, narrow piece of felt on the embellisher and decided to make a purse from it. After it was felted, I did some machine embroidery/quilting in a metallic thread. When is it quilting and when embroidery?
I used the Diva cord maker from http://www.joggles.com/ to make the cord.
Here is the back. I love to machine the circles and have to watch that I don't do them all the time and nothing else.

www.joggles.com offers a nice range of classes. This is the bracelet I made in a class from there taught by Christen Brown. When we were in S. California, the Wearable Art Connection guild had her as a teacher. I took a vest class that was wonderful, so I knew this one would be good.
The web has opened up so many opportuntities for classes that I'm having a lot of fun with them.

Marie at http://zquilts.blogspot.com gave me the Kreativ Blogger award. Thank you Marie. I'm glad someone is inspired. As usual I couldn't figure out how to get the icon, but I'd rather stitch then argue with the computer. I'd like to nominate all the blogs that inspire me, but the list is huge. When I'm tired, I surf and see wonderful things.
The 7 things that I like are:
2. Walks in the woods
3. Leaves in all their variety
4. Anything to do with fiber
7. All my friends both in person and cyber.
I asked for suggestions for the name of the last quilt and was surprised that two people saw broken glass in the piece. I thought that Shattered would fit the piece and how I felt at the time, but PamT mentioned a play on words pane and pain, so it became Shattered Panes/Pains. Other suggestions were:
Since several other pieces were waiting to be stitched-not sure how much I thought I was going to do-the names will be used on them. Thank you to everyone who responsed. Naming quilts is hard for me.
Boy, is this a long post-very unusual for me.
