Stitching Weekend ~ Day 2 from Life in the Scrapatch

 


Stitchy Weekend ~ Part 2

This weekend I have been able to stitch the daily block and one of the blocks that I need to complete to catch up with the daily posts for the 

 October Halloween Stitch Along @ Pine Needles

I am really enjoying this stitch along.


Today's block was this 

Ghastly ~ Day 17

I decided to add black cross stitch eyes to the ghost

and add a few stars to the sky to add some sparkle to the blank space.

Today I also stitched the 

Boo ~ Day 9

where I decided not to extend the witch's broom ...

Stitching Weekend ~ Day 1 from Life in the Scrapatch


Stitchy Weekend ~ Part 1

I am still playing catch up with the 

 October Halloween Stitch Along @ Pine Needles


First I added one of the blocks that I needed do to catch up.

It is this Block 16 ~ Brew


Then I decided I could not resist stitching Saturday's Block,

Block 16 ~ Witch

next to her brew.

Magic Happened!

The bubbles floated over to the witch and the spoon jumped into her hand. 

There is so much cute creativity in these little cross stitch motifs from the designer,

 Sandra Workman @ Pine Needles

 that they bring out my own creative spark when ...

Floss Organizing from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Addie is having fun organizing my Victoria Clayton bobbins of floss. She helped sort the bobbins that were upstairs but her parents are on their way to get her so we’ll tackle the bobbins that are in the sewing room next time she’s here. I love these little boxes from JoAnn. I’ve ordered several bobbin...

Annie's quilt!! from JulieKQuilts


Happy Sunday (or Monday, depending on where you are, like LYN!) to you!    In my silly mind, my friend Annie lives on a desert island, alone with her goats, and her Bernina sewing machine.  In truth, she lives on an amazingly rural, yet refined and urban island, with many people about!!!  She is an amazing quilter, and we have had such a fun time sharing ideas and energy and fabric and life with each other!!  Above is her quilt, from Bonnie Hunter's quilt, here:


Spider & The Fly Digital Pattern (quiltville.com)


 

Here is my version.  Ahem...not as far ...

4 Favourite Things in One Picture, Autumn Pinks, Turkey Soup from Canadian Needle Nana

 This is Thursday, a lovely day to look back at the week and contemplate the weekend ahead. Thursday was my second favourite weekday...Friday being #1 signaling the work week ending. I used to say 4 pm on Friday was my all time favourite moment in a week.

Here is Neddy enjoying one of many walks down the deciduous tree lined path at the back of the property. This borders acres of undeveloped land so there are many trails to enjoy. Overnight it seems to have become leaf lined; lately the leaves are falling like snow.

I happened to step ...

Community Quilts from Karin from Jo's Country Junction

I have some eye candy for you all.  Karin sent emails that included three finished quilts.  Here they are…

Laurie writes:
Greetings Jo! Had to dodge lightning bolts and floods to get these out, but I learned so many new stitches, it was absolutely worth the wait!

First up, we have sweet little kittties, I believe, from the Cresco ladies.  A pieced cat block was surrounded by little paw prints and some solid colors, with a couple of wide patches of printed kitty faces.


I figured it was as good a time as any to see if I could figure ...

Even more 16-patch quilts from Marty's Fiber Musings

 There was just no good place to stop, once I got started.....making those patchwork 16-patch blocks.  And then there was three quilt tops, each different layout and sizes.   The first one blogged about  at Marty's Fiber Musings

Patchwork 16-patch #2:


I decided the on-point orientation deserved one of my favorite Malka Dubrawsky fabrics to finish.

Then, just this morning I finished the third 16-patch.  It's even more spontaneous and whimsical  with added filler blocks cut from my vintage linen table napkins.  No, I had no fear....either they worked, or they didn't!






This may satisfy my ...

Slow Sunday Stitching from Eagle's Wings Quilts

 I’m a little late in writing and posting this today. We had the family down for a visit in our little space this afternoon, so of course that took precedence. Funny how we can all live in the same house but not actually see each other all at once all that often. 

I’m working on multiple slow projects lately, getting some further along and others finished.  

I’ve finished the scrap sock yarn scarf that I was making for my husband, but unfortunately don’t have a picture of it. Once I finished that I decided that I ...

Simply Dashing in Blue Stonehenge from Tamarack Shack


Gay made our Highway 10 Designs Simply Dashing quilt in twin size for her grandson.  She picked Northcotts blue Stonehenge Gradations Ombre and a solid black background. 


I quilted it with the Bayside pantograph, used black So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting. This is a gift for her grandson and he had asked for a blue, black and orange quilt.  You can see in the next picture where she put the orange! Orange Fireside for the win!



We had a lovely display of Northern Lights on Oct 12 so I was out enjoying the show with my camera ...

Time flies! from South Jersey Quilter

 October is halfway gone! As the old saying goes, the days are long and the years are short.


Another page is moving along! 

We had a cold front zip thru last night, dropping the temps by about 20 degrees! I have all the windows closed, and Ralph covered the air conditioner. 

Our nephew David's funeral will be November 13. Manda, Steph and Dan are coming in for it. They are fully vaccinated. Ben will stay home with the kids, who are too young for the vaccine. Several members of the family on Ralph's side are refusing the vaccine ...

Back Home With a Giveaway from ... Cat Patches

Good morning, my friends. We're back home again, and settling back into our old routine...emphasis on the "old." There is still a little to do to bring our trip to a close...unpacking the camper comes to mind...but mostly, we're just soaking up what remains of fall in the Pacific Northwest. 

Backing up to when we left Winnemucca, Nevada, I took almost no pictures on the way home. It was flat, flat, flat with the occasional butte thrown in for variety. The road was straight, straight, straight. Mike was happy to get into some winding roads ...

sewing Saturday from Not Afraid of Color

 

blue flowers 15" X 18.5"

for this week's sewing round up, I'm sharing a finish and some wine bottle blocks for RSC

The challenge of the month at RSC is to use our light/lime green scraps... this top was made a couple months ago, and I finished it this week. If you don't remember this one, I started with some blue scraps from a flowering snowball block series way back. They had curves I liked, so I sewed the halves together and improv curvy pieced them with light greens into a blue flower abstract.

October Magic from Sew'n Wild Oaks Quilting Blog

 Hello Everyone,

 It was a dark Halloween night......in Paula's version of my October Magic pattern.  It is "Spook-tacular"!


I've had the opportunity to watch Paula work on this pattern and watch her painstakingly select all the right fabric for each and every element in the quilt.  She took it to a whole new level, and made an incredible wall hanging to give to her daughter, Molly.


Paula's embellishments add so much to make this scene come to life. 




The wall hanging was artfully machine quilted by Dianne Schweickert from Livermore, CA.  On occasion when I'm ...
