Margaret and I are taking a little break from the Toy Chest, so I have been furiously working on my pesky WIP's. This is my Valentine mystery quilt that I did with My Girlfriend's Quilt shoppe. I changed the borders from purple to red. The banner will be added after the quilting is done.
That's all for me today. Hope everyone is healthy and happy. Thanks for your wonderful comments. They make my day. Happy Sewing!
|This was a fun little stitch from Heartstring Samplery called Joy to the World. It looks much different from the original. The creative ladies at Shepherd's Bush changed the fabric color, floss colors, and added the "Joy" on the chart. Give them a call if you like the changes and would like to get this from them. I added my initials and my husbands initials over one, along with the date.|
|I made some quilting design boards from Lori Holt's website. This is actually the 4th set I've made. The others were for gifts. You use these to keep quilt blocks from getting mixed up while you are in the process of sewing them. Six blocks can sit by your sewing table and not be disturbed...unless someone knocks them off! Easy project to do, you just need a lot of glue sticks.|
|As much as I've tried not to start something new right now, I just had to cut out this sweet project. It's from Need'l Love Strawberry Threads. I saw this done up in California last year, and fell in love. However, the book was quite pricey and I was spending a wad already, so I passed on it. Recently a friend of mine was getting rid of some patterns, and lo and behold this book was in her giveaway bag. I bought it for a few dollars. I already had the frame, so it was practically free. Love those kinds of projects, don't you? It will look much better when it's stitched and the seed beads are on the strawberries. I like projects like this for traveling.|
|Speaking of traveling, we have been. We went to Florida in March to visit my brother and his family, and went to DisneyWorld one day. Here I am with my daughter and her favorite character Jessie.|
