Polka Dot Girls Block 3

The PDG's now have a sewing chair to sit and stitch. Doesn't it look inviting to sit and have a cup of tea and stitch on a warm afternoon.

This weekend was hubs birthday and so we went to see this concert. I haven't been to a concert in a long time and it sure wiped me out for the next day. I was so tired and the time change didn't help either. I don't know about you guys but it takes me a good week to get over not feeling tired in the morning. I also made bagels from this recipe. I must have been way out of it because after I kneaded the dough for the entire 15 minutes I realized I could have made the dough in the bread machine....duh. I did let them raise for double the time suggested and oh boy they were the most delicious bagels I've ever had. Sorry no pictures but you can see them here. I was inspired by this talented quilter. Speaking of talented, have you seen Happy Zombie has a quilt published in the newest issue of Quilts and More. Check out page 76.
Block 3 has the sweetest little basket stitchery as well. Five more blocks to go.

I've loved seeing all the pincushions this week. Hopefully I can get a few minutes to get a picture of mine to show you. Have a good week.

Your stitcheries are lovely. I saw Happy Zombie's Bagel post and thought it looked easy enough ..... thanks for posting the recipe you used. As soon as my oven is fixed (too hot!!!) I'll be giving it a go.

Question: Do you put your stitchery blocks together with fabric before stitching them? What advantages are there to doing it that way? Just wondering if I'm missing something by doing the blocks first.

The concert looks very interesting. I really don't like the time change, I wish they would keep it one way or another. Your blocks are beautiful. You do such a great job.

Thimbleanna said...

Your embroidery is beautiful. I love the colors you are using!

Your Polka Dot Girls looks great. You make me want to finish mine who has become a WISP. ;-)

Linda said...

Yummy looking bagels. Your PDG blocks are looking wonderful, will it be a full sized quilt when finished?

Guðrún said...

Your stitcheries are so well done, and the pattern and the fabric match so well together. Great job.

This stitchery is so dang cute! And I love your handwork too. You have such talented hands and a great eye for color and fabric.

I'm sooooooooo glad you loved those bagels! I think they are so fantastic and it's great to know it's just me!

Thanks you for all the shout outs and linkie love Wendy. I'm sooooooooo touched!

Concerts are such fun . . . although I'm a lot more careful with ear protection than I once was *s*

Bagels! What fun . . . I think I may just have to add that one to the list of things I'd like to try.

Pat said...

Your stitchery is lovely. You do beautiful work.

WOW Wendy I say ditto what the others have said. Your stitching is beautifully done and the colors and fabric look so yummy. It will certainly be a treasure when your done.

Oh, Wendy - I love the newest blocks! I must pull mine out again - I simply must. Wouldn't it be fun to sit them side by side! :-)

I love your polka dot girls!! I want to improve my stitchery so when I do them they will look like yours :)

Mad about Craft said...

These blocks are beautiful. I am a new quilter and things like these are inspiring.

Carole said...

Lovely blocks! What to do what to do next? I don't know, I'm thinking I should start PDG since it's the groove at the moment and leave Journee of a quilter for later! Thanks for sharing!

Knot Garden said...

I just love Bronwyn Hayes' stitcheries - looking forward to seeing the finished quilt and the Bagel sounded yummy.

Pam said...

Oh -- The Barenaked Ladies!! Was it good? Did you have fun? Where was it held? I love them. If I had a million dollars -- I'd buy you a green dress - no.. maybe fabric instead -LOL!!!

The stitcheries are so lovely.

Have a good weekend.
