It’s pretty obvious I haven’t been writing–and that likely means that there hasn’t been a lot of stitching happening either. What it also means is that Facebook and all the blogs I follow have also been neglected. But I will be catching up. Let me catch you up on projects for the last month.
I am still working on quilting Sherry’s bargello (how many months has this been on my frame?). It is so beautiful, but I had to take breaks to make those pillowcases for Christmas and the stockings. So, here are some pix of things that I have been doing. I’m sure you’d like to see the pictures more than read about them. I’ll tell you more about stitching them in the coming weeks. I learned new things about making pillow cases and tried several different ways to make them. Besides what is pictured below, there was a stocking for Elliot and pillowcases with wild animals and manatees and other fun things.
When I can’t be stitching, I can always work at the computer. So, a little digitizing was done. I worked on some new applique stitches. I really like a more lightweight stitch because it launders so much better than a satin stitch when used in a quilt. See if you can pick out the new stitches.
