New Design Sheets....

(don't know why the red is reading orange here)

I decided to start all over with my class design sheets. I had tried to use a different type of collage and there is nothing wrong with the first one I put together. It just was not what I really wanted to work with. Before class had started I wanted to use some of my gingham in my stash as I have loads of it sitting on the shelves. I have five yds of pink, three yellow and three or four yds of the red. As my project from the samples will be a wall hanging, I thought the gingham would suit really well and I would not have to go out and buy anything. I am now a very happy camper with this project and can proceed without a creative block. Sometimes our first ideas are truly the best ideas. Off to stitch a bit now on a wip of the applique variety. I am way behind.

Stars Update

I have added five more stars for my quilt, bringing the total up to 26 so far. I really need to buckle down and work on this in the evenings if I want to finish this sometime in the next year. To my credit though, this has been a slow work in progress quilt. I only work on the stars when I take my parents to dr. appointments or have to go to the hospital to sit. I am thinking I want to work on it more now so I can get this one on the bed. Off for a cuppa and some domestic chores that needs to be taken care of. Have a great day and may your needles always have thread.

Working on.....

Natures Journey...

Natures Journey is being worked on today. Now that dd is at uni again, my mom recovered from her minor surgery and unexpected stay in the hospital and the oldest dd recovered from her surgery, I should be able to get these blocks knocked out soon. Prep work is done for two sets of blocks. Now off for a cuppa and some stitching time.

Only Two......

More little hexagons to go for this seam to be finished, then I can move on to another area to embellish. Still thinking on what else I will be doing for this. I also have a new book that I have wanted for ages and finally decided to buy it. It came today so I will be sitting with this wonderful book this evening for a closer look see. I browsed through early this morning, but I am looking forward to sitting and quietly looking through this book of techniques. I have been up for ages as my mom had a bit of surgery this morning and I am a bit tired. Now off for a cuppa and some quiet time.

Liberty Pouch

A bit more done on the Liberty pouch. Slowly this pouch is coming together. I plan to secure the hexagons in place this evening while taking a rest from all the hectic activity from yesterday. Spent the day at the hospital with oldest daughter while she had exploratory surgery. I also worked on my diamond stars quilt a bit yesterday while waiting as well. More on that soon. Now for a cuppa and a sit down with a good book.

Sampling, Doodles, Play

Taking a bit of time to warm up before actually working on a project has been really enjoyable for me. I will most definitely continue this practice. A few french knots, fme on mulberry paper, knots amid a few yo yo's as well as french knots on gold tissue. These are the pages I have added since the last post. Now off to complete some domestic chores left from yesterday.

Playing With....


these have long been my  nemesis and I almost skipped over this process in class. Then I decided it had been years since I tried making them, so why not try again. Something clicked this time and I am now making them without all the angst that I had previously had. Also, I am doing them two different ways for two different looks. More on the second way in a later post. This fabric is just a sample and will be made into a pocket at some time in the near future. Now off for a cuppa, enjoy your day.

New Pouch...

I have a new pouch in the making. This one will be for my broderie anglaise fabric. Just starting the stitching, so not much to show for my efforts as of yet. I am using some liberty fabric that was gifted to me by a wonderful lady on insta gram that I follow, but you can go here to her blog. She does the most wonderful epp ever and has so many lovely things on her blog. I am enjoying the stitching thus far, as I said it is not much, but it is a start. A seam of buttonhole stitch, which I may go back and do a second round. A bit of a puffed up circle, which is made using cabone rings. I have two more of those to stitch before I move on to something else. I also made a small book to do warm up stitching in. The idea was taken from Karen Ruane after she did a post on her blog this past week. Now off to grab a cuppa and stitch a bit more.
