Busy Stitching

Sorry it has been a little while but I have lots to show.  I have been having a bit of a fight with my computer.  I think I am winning.  I have also had to do some stitching of beads on flowergirl dresses for my sister's wedding on the 11th of March but I am almost finished yeah!!  The beading has been very time consuming and with three flowergirls meaning three dresses luckily Mikayla is small so her dress didn't take as long.  I will have photos after the big day.

Now after the excuses this is what else I have been doing.

I have been a bit naughty and signed up for a few BOM's.  I know this probably breaches my New Years Resolutions but one of the quilts will be for a special birthday so I will be well prepared (I can't say anything more don't want to ruin the surprise).

 This is my scrappy blue quilt.


 One of my new BOM's Blueberry Botanicals by Amanda Bergamin of Seabreeze Quilts.  It is Amanda's first BOM pattern and just lovely.  I have one more mini block to finish.

This is a kit I got while I was in Canada last year and have finished doing the blanket stitching so now I have to cut it back and add the borders.  It is a wall hanging size.
 This is the other BOM Merry Merry Snowmen by Bunny Hill Designs.  I am doing mine with blanket stitch.  It is so cute all those snowmen.
These owls are for Thomas, Joshua and Mikayla as they requested.  You can find the pattern in Cotton Floss by Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches.  I still have a bag to make that my sister Robyn requested.

Until next time happy stitching.

Pretty in Pink

I have been busy using up some of my fabric and have made this quilt top.

 I have made this quilt before in a class and it is very easy to make.  It uses 5 inch squares but I am going to adapt it using smaller squares to make some placemats and coasters.  I am also making one in blue and a purple/green one (I don't have as much purple in my stash as pink and blue).  The fabric boxes still look pretty full so I have a few other patterns that I can use now I just need more time sometimes work gets in the way of sewing.

I have also done part of another block on my Quilt Aid quilt.  I now have some hexies to make for this block.

Until next time happy stitching.
