Kentucky Stars from Applique 'n Patch Quilting

It has been a while since I last worked on this project.  The hand quilting was 3/4 done.  So, a few weeks ago out it came and I've been busy working on it since.  Before I knew it the quilt was done! Then a bout of stomach flu got in the way and so it sat for five days.  Once I recovered from that, the binding was done a little bit at a time. When I got tired and needed to stop and rest (

Something Else from ... Cat Patches

There was plenty of time for sewing yesterday, but I found myself dragging my feet about getting into the sewing room. Does it seem like I've done some sewing pretty much every day for the past month? It kind of does to me.

So I considered other options: baking bread, for one thing. I'm fresh out of toasting bread (aka "bread I've baked"), and so I set to work on a No-Knead Crusty White Bread from the King Arthur website. This is a super easy recipe. No special ingredients nor techniques required, and it makes a whole ...

A Day With Friends - BFF Meeting from Quilting My Way

This morning I really didn't want to get up but knew I needed to. We had our Brazilian embroidery meeting today. I did get some TLC time in with Heyhey.

Picked up Cherrill this morning and took her to our meeting. She worked with Pat while the rest of us worked on getting scissor holders started...but that didn't really work out. We had some issues with the pattern. So, a couple of the gals are going to think about it and see if they can get a better pattern. We are trying to decide on what we ...

OMG: March Goal Complete from ... Cat Patches

My brother's quilt so took over my life this month, that I had no expectation of finishing up my monthly goal for OMG. Then, it all happened faster than I thought it would. I give credit to the crappy weather, since there isn't much else to do around here. 

When I started the EI-EI-OH section of And on that Farm, I was thinking all of the three poultry pictures were roosters. Actually, the middle section of the triptych is a hen. Sorry, ma'am.


When she was finished and fused down, Sadie wondered if she could help with ...

working weekend . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

I *did* get in some good stitching time over the weekend . . . yay!!  And I managed to play in a wide variety of mediums/techniques, too, so double points for me!

I started off the weekend by tackling the sixth block for my fairy frosted orphan project . . .
I think this block fits right in with the other five, don't you think?
Oh yeah -- can't even tell it's not an original!  LOL!  I didn't get the short block fixed.  Fiddle-dee-dee.  There's always next weekend, right? ;)

I also set my hand up for this little wool trick . . .
Hahaha ...

Coming Up...Spring! from ... Cat Patches

Smitty, do you want to go outside? You never have to ask him twice. He's always up for a good meal of mouse. Since building the catio, he's mostly limited to going outside when we are out with him, and he's not very happy about it. Also, he hates our weather. He wanders around whining and crying and looking for the door that leads into summer.


The past week's deluge stopped for a while yesterday morning, and so the two of us went out to fill the bird feeders. While we were out, we saw definite ...

Using Dorset Buttons from Creating Chaos

I've made some of the Dorset Buttons from the kit I bought last month and have used them as the starting point for a new piece of work.

I've signed up for Maggie Grey's Workshop on the Web and one of the workshops in the latest issue was by Isobel Moore.  Do check her work on her website - here   As the workshops are all available only for subscription I won't give any details, but it is a mixture of painted paper, fibres, fabrics, machine and hand stitching, plus any embellishments you wish to use.

Stash Report And All New Projects from Quilt Paint Create

No fabric in this week.

The Bricks top finish used a yard and a half. A lot of the fabrics came off the charity table.

With that top done and set aside for now, I started a bunch of new things. I colored the background of January’s Art Supply Play block using a rubbing plate and silver crayon. I think it looks like frost on a window. I also started embroidering around the heart.

I made a plus block for my guild’s volunteer quilt.  They didn’t want them squared up.

I pulled floss to do the embroidery ...

Even more embroidery from Wendy's Quilts and More

Yesterday I chose my fabric and threads for my other major embroidery class - Holey Moley.  Again, I'm a student, not the teacher.



I took my inspiration from the beautiful verigated Stef Francis threads and just picked complimentary colours.  This class starts on 5 April so I'm almost ready to go.  I just need to trace the design onto the fabric now, but I'll do that at Nancy's Stitch Studio because they have a light box.

One of my "no reply blogger" readers asked me to recommend an embroidery book, so I'm showing this Embroidery Stitch ...

A Late Night/Early Morning Finish from ... Cat Patches

For all that Wednesday was a productive day, Thursday couldn't have been more slug-like. There was just one small housekeeping task to accomplish, and I did it early so that I could spend the afternoon sewing. Then I headed off for my monthly pedicure, making a couple of stops along the way home. When I got home, I had some lunch, and then sat down in a chair. After that, there was little movement, but a whole lotta sloth. Finally, I made my way to the sewing room at around 4:30 p.m., but Mike arrived home early ...
