It's week #4 for the hand work link up and I am just loving it! I enjoy getting a cup of tea and reading all the posts that link up. Thanks to everyone who is participating!
A big thanks to Carrie who introduced me to an adorable stitchery project, and posted the link to get the free patterns. I hope to sew at least some of these blocks.
Last week Teresa shared the view she enjoyed while working on her embroidery... what a great idea! Anyone else care to show us what you see while you enjoy some slow stitching?!?
This is my view...
a cold, refreshing fruit drink and my stitching! I'm not sure what else is going on around me when I'm in quilting heaven...with refreshments!
I was able to finish hand quilting another block of my "Quilter's Blessings" quilt.... "a more than 24 hour day". How many times have I wished for that?!?
I decided to quilt little triangles on the four sides of each stitchery, and am pleased with how it frames the blocks. There are 12 blocks in this quilt and I am making great progress with over half of them quilted now.
How are you coming along with your hand stitching project?
Link up your hand work blog post and you will be entered into the draw for this month's giveaway, which includes 4 fat quarters of the Sweet Shoppe fabric line, a Hera Marker (my new favorite tool), a few needle grabbers, and a sewing nail file. So far we have about 34 entries from the first 3 hand work linky parties. (Blog postings that are not about hand work will be deleted from link lists).
