That's right! I've managed to start and complete a project! Remember the crochet from the last post? Well, it's done and has been done for a while. I've just been so busy with work, baby and moving house. The main reason I've made progress on any of my projects is my commute to work. Which… Continue reading A finish and progress on two other projects
And, oh, so many things have happened! But mostly, this little guy has been taking all my project time and then some! But that's not all! I've been trying to tidy up my project closet, and found some treasures. My very first quilt was the quilt I started in my first quilting class twenty-something years… Continue reading It’s been a while
I signed up for the Curves class by Rachel through her Stitched in Color blogÂ and the Clamshell Pillow is one of the many projects in the class. I haven't had time to do anywhere near all of them, but I was determined to do at least this pillow! And definitely the Scallop Quilt. Anyway, I… Continue reading Clamshell Pillow
And it's done! I sewed the sides with French seams and bound the opening, quilt-style.
I like to use a little pillow for lumbar support in the car. I don't need it, but boy does my back feel better when i use it! But my current pillow is getting old, so I thought I would take the opportunity to replace it. I couldn't find a pillow form of the same… Continue reading Spool Block travel pillow
I had thought to discard the 7th row and column making the quilt 6x6 blocks instead. When I thought this, I assumed that this would make the quilt much smaller, so proposed to add a 3" pieced border to compensate, but after throwing up the blocks on the design wall, I decided that the quilt… Continue reading Winding Ways progress report
Jillian of Dakota Essence started another Mug Rug Swap way back in January this year, but something must have happened as there haven't been any updates from her since February. I hope she is okay! I signed up for this immediately, even though I already had several projects on the boil, because these are fun… Continue reading Inklingo Mug Rug Swap 2014
That's right, I've started another project! This one will hopefully not take too long, seeing as how I've barely pieced 12 of the 49 blocks of the baby quilt I'm making. This is the start of a pillow case for my back when I'm driving. The old pillow is at least five years old and… Continue reading Starting yet another project
Hurrah! Another large bed quilt is completed! It's bound and labeled and drying on the line! Because it is a gift, I'm considering sewing up a bag for it from the leftover scraps. Just need to figure out how big to make it. But really, I'm just thrilled I even labeled it! See!? UPDATE: The… Continue reading I’m done I’m done I’m done!
A little late, but here is a progress report. "Parenthesis" was the last word and the embroidery complete! Not being well-practiced at embroidery, I'd say that this effort has a lot of "character." I'm really happy with the overall effect.Sewing the binding on. No pictures of making the bias-binding because, after basting, it's a step… Continue reading I can see the light!
I promised a photo of the underside of the embroidery. I'm working on the third line, almost done! I am loving this font even though it has added so many swirls and flourishes, it's taking AGES to finish. That, and I've been taking a bit of a break from working on this quilt to play… Continue reading Embroidery underside
