Happy Halloween

A little needle punched pillow I made a couple years ago.  I found the orange lights this year and simply wrapped the pumpkin with them. I hope you have a spooky Halloween, I'll be spending the day on the couch, a cold hit me like a ton of bricks yesterday. I don't even feel like stitching......I must be sick....time for one of many naps today.

Have a good Halloween!

Redwork Stitching

I finished the stitching for my Birdbrain pattern called Celebrate the Seasons. I wouldn't have done these with the Sulky product that goes through the printer.....I'm loving that stuff.
Next will be to wash off the Sulky, maybe some tea dying and then framing. I have the prefect frame but it needs to be painted, so you know what that could be a while before I get that done. I'm not saying because I'm slow but rather it's raining a lot now and I would wait for a nice day to do the painting.

Keep Well and Happy Stitching.

Smile Friday

This is what happens when I go shopping. Boo loves to jump in the bag....what a silly cat! He makes me laugh.

I finished some redwork blocks last night, I plan to frame them but I'll take a picture first.

Happy Stitching.

Pincushion Finished

Last week was incredibly busy, didn't have time for much sewing. It seemed I was doing more driving than anything else. And to top it all off, I've started priming the living room with the help of my daughter,  I picked up the yellow paint yesterday. It's going to be a big job. I did manage to finish this little pincushion from Kaaren's free patterns.

This is before washing away the Sulky Fabri-Solvy, I love how this product saves on all the work of  tracing the design and is easy to stitch through.  Does anyone else use this product? I love it!

And Speck is quilted and ready to enjoy for the fall.  There was a few squares leftover from the charm pack and I had enough for a small mat, it's not quilted yet, hopefully soon if this week turns out to be less busy.

Happy Quilting and Stitching.

Needle Case

Still enjoying all the turkey leftovers, I might make a turkey soup tonight.....I love turkey.

I almost forgot to show my finished Sue Spargo needlecase, I showed it before doing the embellishments here. This is the front of the case with all the embellishing finished.
Here is the back.
Completely open you can see the front, back and inside sections.
Here is the inside with the wool pages for needles and scissors tied in place. I really enjoyed doing the embellishments around everything, there is a lot of stitching in this case. I used cotton, wool and some silk velvet for the appliques. You can find the pattern here. It's free!

Happy Stitching!

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends. I've made the cranberry sauce, my daughter is making the pumpkin pie today and soon the house will smell of delicious turkey.
A cute fabric pumpkin I made yesterday to decorate the table for fall. Thank you Linda for the kit and pattern to make this adorable pumpkin.....I love it!

Have a wonderful turkey day!

One Finish....One Not

A little 9-Patch quilted and binding sewn down....woohoo....something finished. Pattern is from Country Lane Quilts free patterns. I haven't felt like I've accomplished much lately, but doing these little ones gives me that feeling of having something finished. 
The blocks from the Summer Star Sew Along became this little quilt, I changed the setting and only did 6 of the 8 blocks. I'm happy I participated and got a few done. I'm a bit undecided about the green setting fabric....not sure if it's to busy or maybe when it's quilted it will look fine.

Happy Quilting!
