Some Finishes from Thread Head

I finished a few things this past week.
The Granny Stripe blanket made from leftover fingering weight handspun-



It is 26"x55", the perfect size for laying on my legs or putting around my shoulders. This is my second Granny Stripe blanket and once again I loved making it, I will miss this project. The pattern is free from Attic 24.


I crochet a little edge around this one for a change.


I also finished sewing a robe, from some fabric I was given.


The pattern is from this Japanese sewing magazine (vol 10).


These patterns are very easy to ...

Everlasting Blog Tour from Expect Moore

I’m so excited to join in today on the Everlasting Blog Tour! When Sharon Holland asked if I’d like to join in to make a project with her gorgeous new fabric line for Art Gallery Fabrics, of course I said YES! And here is the quilt that I made to showcase these fantastic prints:

The quilt was largely an improv project. I knew I wanted to use the fabrics to do some English Paper Piecing. I got my hands on the new Brimfield Awakening Brimfield Beginnings blocks. I chose the Soleil Brimfield Beginnings design. I actually made four ...

Strawberry Sewing from Threads On My Socks




Strawberry Makin' Today!

I had visions of strawberries all over my work table and wala...there they are. I love making them in pinks and reds. These were made with the sweetest little berry pattern and you won't need much fabric either, which always makes for a nice, easy & fast project.




So, Sew, Summery! The plan for this .... a 24" SQ mat for a table in my sewing room. I still need to cut fabric for sashing and the binding but I put that aside and made more pink berries! That's the best part of strawberry making...they ...

Fremont Tote from Liz Makes Crafts

I'm about to go on a 2 week trip (including a 14-hour flight with a 7 year old ... wish me luck) to Shanghai, and I wanted to make a bag for the trip. I wanted something that was roomy, versatile, and able to withstand the rigors of weather and travel.

Enter the Fremont Tote designed by Ellie Lum of Klumhouse. I was in love with this bag as soon as I saw it, because there's lots of hardware (which I love), it has a great look, but feels very hardwearing. That's probably due to the materials it ...

Adventure Waits with Bonnie Christine's "The Open Road" from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Have you ever been on a road trip that just inspired you so much? There's something just so exciting about packing up, jumping behind the steering wheel and heading out on an unforgettable adventure. Windows down, music up...observing all the sounds, sights, smells..as you drive through quiet forests, open fields, majestic mountains, serene deserts...welcoming spontaneity and the unexpected. Trips like this often bring new perspectives and creative ideas, and this is exactly what happened to our designer, Bonnie Christine!

Bonnie recently went on an 8,000-mile road trip across the country with her family in a ...

Beating the Blahs from Hooked on Quilting

Over the past 15 years of owning this shop, I’ve had several ladies visit during the summer months looking for something to inspire them. Why? Because they have what we’ve come to recognize as the Summertime Creativity Blahs (SCBs for short). Now you might be thinking that that’s kind of an odd malady to have in the summertime when there’s so much to do and so much daylight in which to do it. However, it’s a true enough ailment caused by, in my opinion, the lack of a need for curling up under a cozy ...

Mommy and Me from From the Strawberry Patch...

You might remember from a previous post (here) that our youngest granddaughter chose fabric recently for a sundress for herself and her doll. While she's been vacationing with her other grandparents in another state, I managed to get their dresses done and ready for their return back home.  The pattern is shown here, it was a great pattern and easy to follow; however, I would add two
