I have been super busy lately. Lots of work to do, lots of projects in the works, lots of events to go to. My best friend had a baby at the beginning of this week so I have been hanging out with them a lot this week, admiring this little man.He is super sweet and I am in love already. My lovely friend is an awesome mommy already, and I can’t wait to watch him grow up.
I finished the Quilt Along quilt. And have been putting it to good use lately. I did finish it in the 7th week of the quilt along, I just haven’t got around to posting about it yet.
Another little project I made this past week was a gift for my sister for her birthday.I have been making little samplings of different patchwork patterns, and I decided to make a little something out of one for my sister. The letters are embroidered on, I printed out the words in the font I liked and traced it on the white fabric with pencil, then I ironed a stabilizer on the back and back stitched over the pencil markings. I really like the way it turned out, stay tuned for more embroidery projects soon. I actually sandwiched this with a plain white and batting, and pebble quilted the whole thing, then framed it in a frame without glass. It measures 16″ x20″. I hope she likes it, it is currently in the mail and hopefully will be delivered shortly. I forgot to take a picture before mailing it of the finished product, so I will have to have her take a picture for me.
I have a lot of irons in the fire right now, and am hoping to be finishing up a lot of projects soon. I am hoping to par down the things I participate in and focus on some simple living this fall. I leave you with a few photos.Some fabrics I picked up the other day.A french country side table that I am trying to sell, let me know if anyone wants it who lives somewhere in Chicagoland.This is a fun old bullzeye sign I found in my Grandpas shed when I was there this spring.Another little man I had the pleasure of meeting a couple of weeks ago, Izrael.Lastly, I found this picture in my archives and just thought it was fun. It feels like a giant mushroom forest.
Thanks for stopping by…
