I'm not sure how this post is going to go with all these changes to blogger, but here is an attempt anyway, to see if I can master it!
We have been blessed with the most beautiful weather today, which just called for lines of washing to be hung out! yes, sadly I had multiple washes to do, to my shame, but I honestly believe the family members of this house land down their entire wardrobes when I call for dirty laundry!
Again, another busy month has just flown by and again as a result my poor stitching only gets fits and starts here and there, so I will share with you what I am working on, as there doesn@t seem to be many finishes around here anymore.
So blogger puts photo's on in the order we download them now???? Well, I will know for again-maybe you should start at my last pic for that was how they were intended!
I am still slowly plodding with 'Home Sweet Home' in fact I am behind as I have only one stitched of this grouping and the next set have arrived. I so wanted to keep up with this one. I suppose if I stopped starting other projects, that might be the answer......
Like this one.....just had to have a little cross stitch on hand and loved this from 'With thy needle and Thread'
What it will hopefully look like....
I haven't ever done much piecing and some time back I bought a layer cake by French General, so thought I would give it a go-a bit less prim than I am used with but I so loved the fabric and so enjoyed making something bright and 'summery'!
Don't be looking too close but I am trying to hand quilt it after googling techniques-I think the secret to even sized stitches might me a special thimble which I don't have......that's my excuse!
I have loved seeing/drooling over all the new patterns/fsbrics from quilt market; so much to be tempted by, but sure not enough hours in my day to accomplish many, but it doesn't stop me wishing.
Thanks again for stopping by-I hope this publishes ok as the preview thing is scaring me-looks like it has already published and I haven't finished. We shall see how it presents, O no, where is spell check gone????
I love quilting, stiching and wool applique. Although I love to admire all styles, I am drawn to primitives, muted colours and comforting fabrics like plaids, checks and of course felted wool!
My life revolves around our family of three children, part time nursing and my therapy is stitching.
I love life and as a born again Christian, each day is all the more precious as I believe God has given me a second chance at life.
This blog is primarily about my crafting journey and meeting other like-minded people.
