things look this morning. Hot from under my presser foot…
I’ll be tucking in ends during lunch! ; )
It’s Autumn here and the trees have been making a wonderful showing of divine color. Mums are in bloom. Many homes are festooned with Hallowe’en decorations…pumpkins, cornstalks, scare crows, ghosts and such. It’s FUN walking Jingle in the evenings. All treats and no tricks! ; ) Enjoy your day.
about the big black dog…
There was even some sewing too…
Fall Break has come to a close. This will be the last of my “Breaks”…it was good while it lasted!!!
Jingle in the Atlantic Ocean!
This is what "surfing" means at the Beach...
Need I say more?!
Thanks, Marianne AND Karen!!! ; )
glueing tiny/thin vines
And, who couldn't use a little Hearts and Flowers, AND LOVE...?!?!?!
End of the season zinnias still make me smile!
Thank you ALL for your kindness and comments. Things continue to evolve and change in our households. It’s all good. Just new. The chaos is stress producing. More changes ahead…!
I use a digital photo to help me with fabric placement and color choices. It’s SO quick and simple to do…and re-do!
Amy Butler’s LOVE line, specifically, her Paradise Garden print has been my ‘jumping off point’. I am using these Paradise Garden prints in two colorways to guide my fabric selections and color choices for this project. Hmmm. What do you think…?! How do you choose fabrics for a project?
I will not add the ‘tongues’ until the little bit of floral applique is done, but this is how LOVE is looking this morning. Remember, I am making this small. I did NOT enlarge the pattern in the Quilted Romance book. My Hearts and Flowers quilt will be a wall hanging.
Hearts and Flowers with a little Amy Butler LOVE! : )
Uh, see that coral finger tip heart…? Yep, it’s an old Gap shirt that has been sacrificed for the cause. I like it better here!!!
satisfying about speed. That happy feeling when a project is moving right along. In just a few short hours of BLISSFUL sewing…
up. It does not become me. The faster I go the behinder I get. I’m not too late for TGIF, am I?! No? Look what the post delivered today…a chartreuse bag of goodness!!!
P.S. Enjoy your Friday AND your weekend too!
Hey! Thanks for the Etsy info. I will investigate further, and I am looking forward to it. : ) I really appreciate your comments and emails. You each were a help.
The wool sort of worked. Well, it wasn’t a raging failure. I think with some different kinds of wool, more experience and some experimenting it may be quite fun. I will definitely try it again. Sometime.
We are continuing to keep our fingers crossed and are chanting a mantra of + juju and good thoughts. We did get GOOD news yesterday. HoOrAy!!! Lots of balls in the air…
Meanwhile, I’ve been finding time to stitch. Stitching brings me sanity and balance. Stitching is SEW necessary!!! I sewed some of my Roseville Album pieces that had been glued in place. I’ll soon be ready to add more. Here’s what it’s looking like!
Enjoy your day. May stitching bring some balance to your life as well! ; )
Hmmm. Looking at that top bird…is he too flamboyant?! I can not decide if the tail and wing fabric is just too much? Maybe a striped tail and solid colored wings instead…
This is our “new” old front door – distressed, and with the addition of new hardware and a Plink curtain. ; ) I did decide to leave the interior of the door aqua!!!
Hmmm. What do you think…?!
