Lesley Teare Needlework design

Idea !

23rd Nov 2017

Looking towards 2018......and SAL thoughts. I like this idea of Sunbonnet "Sue's and he's!" Any thoughts please. There will probably be a 'grown - up one as well, based on flowers and butterflies. Depends how well I can get on with them all. 

Look forward to hearing from you all. x 

Just an update from this earlier text. Thank you so much to everyone that has replied, and I think I may have deleted one message by mistake! if so please send it again....x

Comment from Marie Neil

Thank You, Lesley. I really love your designs - and would love to see a "grown-up" SAL with flowers...

I think we might have to have two going?


Comment from LittleOldLady

My son's great grandma made him a quilt to celebrate his birth. Back In the 60's it was not possible to know the sex prior to birth so she when 50 - 50, Sunbonnet Sue, but in blue! A sampler of this type would be something I could complete and give to my granddaughter. And, make a second one for my grandson. Fortunately there is a 7 year age difference so I won't get bored! The "grownup" one is an absolute YES! I LOVE butterflies and flowers together. I might even keep this one for me!!

It definitely looks as though you might get your wish and also have one for yourself Donna.

You are welcome. I hope you will partake in the SALs next year Beaj


Comment from Sue

Love your idea of the "Sunbonnet Sue's and he's" because they are full of colors, feel good designs & never get tired of working on moral boosters or feel good designs. That is why I like you as a designer!

What a lovely comment Sue, thank you.


Comment from Wizzi

I love the sunbonnet sues and hes, but would prefer flowers and butterflies.

Looks as though you may get your wish as I think there will be two SALs on the go!

Hi Lesley! I absolutely love the idea of Sunbonnet Sues and Toms! I wasn't able to do the teddy bear SAL month to month, but I have all the patterns downloaded. I would like to do the 2018 SAL from the very beginning. Please let's do this! hugs, queeny

Jolly good, I think this might be a yes.


Comment from Louise

A lovely choice Lesley. I'm halfway through the Teddies which are going into a quilt and loving the little details in them Thank you so much.
