Appliqué Chimneys and a New Project from The Cozy Quilter

A few weeks ago, I noticed that another one of the Slow Sunday Stitchers was starting a new counted cross stitch project through Linen and Threads--it runs a new part of the pattern each month for a larger sampler project and there is a bonus Christmas ornament pattern each month as well.  I have decided to make a few of the Christmas ornaments and started the January pattern this week. The pattern suggests using one colour for the entire design but since I did not want to follow the directions, I picked out three shades of gray and a ...

The Big Weird Bead from Quilt Paint Create

Remember the folded star ornament I wanted to paint?
I finally got around to doing that.
ornamentI wanted to add a button to the middle, but I didn’t have anything interesting in a complementary color. Enter the big weird bead.
It came in a pack with a lot of smaller more usable beads. I’m just glad to have found a place to use it.
That’s one more thing off the project pile.

Embroidered Ornaments from From My Carolina Home

I have made ornaments from crewel work and cross stitch, and today I want to show you how to use your embroidery machine to do something different.  My embroidery machine has cards with motifs on them.  I began with this angel, but not in all the colors.

Threading the machine with a white rayon thread, when the machine stopped to change colors, I just hit the button to start again.  I ended up with a lovely embroidery all in white.

Sparkles and Sequins from Needle and Foot

Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to spend some time with my son and his family. They were spending a long weekend in Colorado while my daughter-in-law interviewed for a job she is interested in. Since moving and changing jobs is a huge decision, the kids wanted time to look at the area without the added help of their two year old daughter. So I got to be the nanny for a few days.

I had not been to Denver until this trip. Denver is at an altitude of nearly 6,000 feet and I usually avoid high altitudes ...

Christmas Makes from Oops Lah

As every year I've made a few Christmas gifts and Christmas ornaments. A friend of mine has recently retired and wants to start to embroider so I made her this box and filled it with some essentials.

Then I made these patchwork note book covers

Then I made a couple of folders with papers I bought in China. The first is a very typical Chines pattern

and here are some Shanghai ladies from the twenties. I hope my friends from my Asia time will enjoy them.
