I finished a little patriotic sampler. This was a fun stitch, and I did it in a few nights. I haven't been stitching too much lately. The sewing machine has been getting more attention, because of this...
My DD got a new sewing machine. This is cute Hello Kitty machine, that actually sews great. It has 9 stitches and a button hole. The perfect machine for DD to learn to sew on. It is a real Janome machine, not a toy, so I do have to watch her, but so far she has been really careful, and we haven't sewn our fingers yet...knock on wood!
I've been working on Garden Fence by Fig Tree. I really love this quilt. I am having problems finding the right color of fabric to go in between the blocks. I have a lot of orange going on here, and I'm not sure that I want that much orange. Opinions anyone?
The weather has been so awful here, I actually got to wear this last weekend for our towns annual Heritage Festival. It only got up to 55 degrees, and it rained all day. I've had lots of compliments on it, and I'm glad it turned out. Both patterns are from Serendipity Studios. The jacket was really easy, and I got my decorator fabric for a dollar a yard...Kaching!
Barbara from Quilt Soup. Her trunk show was fantastic! I love her patterns, they are fun and happy. Quilts that make you smile. I bought this pattern, which is not like her work now at all. This is one of her first patterns she designed. The center on the star block gets cut out, and you can make a bonus quilt with the extra piece. I love this idea! After the show, I got to go to lunch with Barbara. She is so fun to talk to. I love getting to meet creative people! Wish I would have had my camera!
Some of my stash haul from Shop Hop Can you tell what fabric DD picked out, and what I picked out?Jolene's blog to see some photos of the different stores.
I started on one of my Barrick Samplers. I have vision of a whole row of these black samplers hanging with black ribbon in my sewing room. I'll have to take pictures when I get them done.
Last but not least, I made a new ironing board cover. Don't you just love the samplers on it? It fits my room perfectly!
Take care dear blog friends! Thanks for all your wonderful comments. I love them! Until next time...Happy Sewing.
