New Slow Stitching Project from Romany Quilting

Yes, I know, I’m plodding along with my apron stitchery, but that’s no reason not to trace off and prepare a new stitchery project.  I've decided I want to do this freebie from Stitch Doodles.

P1000310

New pattern

Because I wanted to stitch something with a Spring vibe, I changed the words, and traced the pattern onto a very pale green fabric.  So far, I’ve made a small start. Sorry, but this didn't photograph terribly well, but I’m sure you get the idea.

I've made a start

I needed my helper to hold the ...

Cleaning up......... from Exuberant Color

 

Once again I'm attempting to clean off table tops.  I came across a pile of scraps and decided to cut them into logs for my ongoing project.  6 more blocks makes 22 total.  I need more light pieces so when I find a pile of light scraps I'll do some more cutting.






What do you do on a nice cool Saturday?  Bake of course.  I had a half package of frozen cinnamon rolls that I wanted out of my freezer.  They were all frozen in a heap so I had to microwave on a thaw cycle so I ...

Back to playing - from A Left-Handed Quilter

Today I got back to playing with Grace -  And wondered - "What if?" -  What if I tried to follow a stencil in this new section? -  I found one called "Over-All Swirl" -  That fit the area -    "Pounced" it -  And tried to follow the lines -  This time in "Regulated Cruise" mode -   That's sad -  Just plain sad - LOL -   I missed the mark in SO many places -  And mixed up some of the lines -

Community Quilts from Karen R from Jo's Country Junction

I have quilts to share with you from Karen R.  We have several Karens and Karins who are quilt finishers so I decided to add a last initial to try to help keep them all separated.  I know it’s likely for a reader to keep them straight.  For me, as the coordinator, it’s hard, thus […]

Thank you all for your fence ideas. I’ve read them all and will answer the ones I remember here. Move Fence to the Front Corner: We technically are supposed to have our fences start at the back corner of the house and not come forward but, they are allowing us (not just us but the...

Hooking, Knitting and Piecing from The Cozy Quilter

Life is busy in my neck of the woods.  This is not going to change any time soon so I will just share my little bits of progress each week as usual.  I worked on my sheep rug hooking project earlier this week. The green grass is just about done now.  Next, I will finish that last bit of green on the right side of the picture before working on the blue sky and the yellow sun. 



I was in the mood to do some knitting earlier today.  I dug out some yarn, needles and a pattern for a lattice ...

Portable project from Quilt in Progress

I said this was a great method for putting in just a few minutes here and there. It is also fantastic for being portable.

I live in Missouri but I’m originally from Michigan. I needed to go back for a visit and didn’t want to lose 7 or 8 sewing days, so I brought it along. I managed to fit everything into two smallish boxes, plus the small portable sewing machine.

I could have brought it into the motel room where I stayed overnight on the way there and on the way back. I decided I was too ...

Checking In from ... Cat Patches

The day we leave is nearly here. We've spent the past several days packing and preparing. Mike has worked all week getting the RV in tip-top condition. It's been frustrating for him at times, fixing one thing, and then discovering something else that needs fixing. I believe he has it all done now though. Just before sitting down here, I found him washing the RV. That's always the last chore before hitching up.

Yesterday, I took some time to snap a photo of the state of the states. If you were with us on our last big ...
