Quilted Art Project Update 4

I know, it has been a couple of weeks since I showed any progress this project.  I had to set it aside while I worked on the Moda Bake Shop recipe that published this past week (Pin Woven Tote on the sidebar).  Between that, the charity quilts, the car club, and spring springing, little time …

Quilted Art Project – week 3

Another week, and it has again been busier than expected.  I did manage to get some stitching done this week, and I plan to do more today. I added a few more buttons, and realize I need more lighter ones for contrast.  I finished the couching on the lavendar trim too. I made one little …

Quilted Art Project – Part 2

I finally got back to the Quilted Art project, but couldn't spend a lot of time on it this week.  However, even a little bit of progress each week will, over time, complete the project.  I think I'll be able to stitch some on it today.  For now, here is where it stands. The last …

This project will be a Slow Stitching project over the next few weeks.  Today, I'll show the overall plan, and will update as I get farther along.  Someone asked me recently how many projects I have going on at any one time, and the answer is usually two or three.  I'll have something next to …

Super Bowl Sunday, Fun Food and Slow Stitching

Go Panthers!! Today will be a fun day, and I hope the Panthers do well.  One thing I learned a few years ago, I don't want any company for the game, and I don't want to go anywhere.  I want to watch both the game and the commercials, without having to entertain or have conversation …

Mardi Gras Mini Quilt

The table stand needed something colorful for Mardi Gras, so time to bring out the scraps and make a new mini quilt.  The colors of purple, green and gold are gathered in this small quilt based on a single block.  The diamond shape created with the color placement is reminiscent of the harlequin designs used …

Slow Stitching Sunday #11

Slow Stitching was a success as I finished the little sewing ornaments this week.  Participating with this group has really helped me to stay motivated to make progress each week.  Sometimes it wasn't much, but every week had some progress. They looked a bit unfinished when I got them all stuffed and closed this week. …

Slow Sunday Stitching #10

I didn't get a long way on these this week, it was very busy with work and a continuing education class that required an overnight stay in Greenville SC.   I was delighted to get back to the sewing room!  So, here is where I started, with all the fabrics I thought would be good for …

Slow Sunday Stitching #9

Week 9, hope you all had a wonderful holiday!  I had lots of turkey and Thanksgiving goodies, football and friends.  Watching holiday parades and an extra day of football meant I could get the stitching complete and block the piece. Here are the pins and button hooks.  The blue one is supposed to have a …

Slow Sunday Stitching #8

Wow, have we really been going at this for two months? I wish I could say that I finished these ornaments up this week, as that was the goal.  Alas, a busy life this week didn't leave a lot of stitching time.  I did get one more almost finished, the tape measure. I haven't gone …
