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!
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.
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!
