Now Jacquelynne has brought that style to a new book she has written and illustrated for Kansas City
Star (another thing we have in common). This book is a treasure!
Fruitful Hands is the perfect title.her blog because there are prizes each day!!
It is so fun to see not only all the great designs but the whole book is illustrated by Jacquelynne. It is filled with wonderful projects in stitchery, wool, quilting, AND yummy recipes.
Here's one of the stitchery projects, Fruit of the Spirit. Isn't that covered mat a good idea? You could use any of your favorite fabrics to highlight your stitchery, and the instructions for covering the mat are included, too.
I really think Jacquelynne can be proud of this book, and I know you will love it too. You can find it at quilt shops and on the web. If you want to order it from Jacquelynne, here's the link to her site.
