WIP Wednesday for the Needle and Thread Network Gang!

At least I’m getting in here and posting now.  It is motivating to know that others are out there doing their stuff.  I worked on my embroidery this week.

Here it is soaking in cold water because I am using “Transfer Eze” for the transfer.

I also put together the windmills for block number 1, the centre block:

I’m following the directions for the blocks with each month.  I forgot to take a picture of the 3rd block that I am just starting.

I also received some more 6-word memoirs from my students and they are stunning! I finally found a fabric marker that writes well.  They are called “Stained by Sharpies” and come in a package of 8 I think.  So vibrant! I got them at Staples for those interested.

I think that I am going to photocopy these in colour and work with the images.  I am starting to get a lot.

Well, I am linking up with The Needle and Thread Network, so got on and visit everyone! That’s where I am headed.  I should be back in to post my 3rd block.  I am also going to try to get my windmill colours decided so that the rows can go together.

Happy Stitching everyone!


Putting my feet up and stitching…

After doing housework this week-end and my last long run before my marathon (Ottawa), I took out my stitchery. I am doing an embroidery BOM and I am on the 2nd block:

Here is the first and the book that the stitcheries are in:

I ordered it from Sew Sisters because I didn’t want the headache of finding the material to go with it.

Head on over The Needle and Thread Network to see what everyone else is working on.  I so enjoyed my visits last week. So many talented ladies.

WIP Wednesday

Now that I am finished my challenge piece and my Saturday Square Dance workshop, I can concentrate on my windmills…my square dance project looks like miniature windmills….so colourful!

My windmills are starting to wilt :(…but back to it.  In fact, last night I won two fat quarters that would look great in this! 🙂

Here is my finished tablerunner:

Stitching in the ditch was hard, so don’t look too closely.  I also had a hard time at my corners…but practice, practice!

I found a place to lay my runner:

Go and check out the other Canadians who are stitching up spring storms over at The Needle & Thread Network!
