As Promised

I promised when the new year started I would start letting you know a little about me, my love for quilting and for animals, so the time has finally arrived. I started Purrfect Spots in 1996 as a cross stitch design company, then added needlepoint and finally quilting. Who would have thought that my first quilt design would be a monkey? Spring Fling Monkey was taken from the Purrfect Spots - Purrfect Point Needlework Line by Raffy L. Please see canvas on the left  and quilt on the right. I was advised to go into quilting as many of my cross stitch and needlepoint patterns would translate into applique quilting very easily. So this was my first attempt. On the quilted version of Spring Fling, the garland and head dress are filled with ribbon embroidery. Loving handwork the way I do, I had lots of fun playing with the garland. I even added some flower buttons. Hopefully I can get a good close up picture so you can see exactly what I am talking about. How many of you like ribbon embroidery. Would love to know how many of you like ribbon embroidery. Look forward to hearing from you.


  1. Nan very nice.....I too dabble in ribbon embroidery, not nearly as much as Iwould like to but hopefully in 2011 I will get a chance to more than I have....

  2. Oooh, I like this little monkey! I'll look forward to seeing a close-up.
