Grasshopper beat me to the next project on the list.
She wanted to embroider.
Good thing I had started to prepare for this new endeavor. We did a quick tutorial on stitches and settled on the back stich. Her smiley face hanky/tiny blanket (can't figure out what it really is) is now in constant use.
I purchased fabric rolls from Fabric.com with strip quilts in mind.
I layed out the strips in waives of color... greens going into blues, yellows into oranges.
You can't see the effect here, but I willpost the finished quilts later.
I played around with using a different batting material and I am super happy about that choice. You see, I recently attended a quilting class at 35th Avenue store and I watched and listened and walked out of the place with some new goodies to try out. I also tried quilting with my Singer by using stitch number 16. Can you see the waviness above?
And on this Sunday afternoon, I had some coffee and cake. It reminds me of the afternoon tea experience lived my Europeans wherever in the world they find themselves. My Momma had it prepared for us on special occasions.
What is it I like sewing more than anything? Bags and pillows.
This white soft one was made from a remnant that I purchased , not knowing exactly how big it was and what I would make with it. I opened it up when I got home and decided its fate.. a pillow. It is a treat for someone who likes hugging soft things when sleeping ... me.
