I was wondering as I was getting ready to do tonight's post---do you read the other blog site updates first---or do you do your post then read them?????
Ok on to some sewing goodies--here is some fall things I am working on at the moment:
This is a scarecrow that I am needle turning, but using the blanket stitch in black thread for all of it--it has been tricky cause as usual the pattern is backwards for those who do the sticky paper stuff!!!!
And here is the "biggy" one of have been working on--look closely, now:
First Can you guess what "these" strange shapes are???? Let me tell you that once again this pattern was for the fusible stuff--but I am again doing in needle turn applique--Please note how skinny those legs are:
today I appliqued their "high heels" on them----
What do you think????? Here's an even closer picture of the legs and shoes?????
I may be "blind" by now--the legs are only about an 1/8 inch wide--yet I was able to needle turn them--the only one I am not totally pleased with it the leg on the far right--I do believe that that leg has a "cellulite" problem??????????
Here is a couple of gift items I finished on Sunday for a give away one of these days??
I really love my bird pin/needle holder--especially when I am appliqueing!!!
Also today I got another wall hanging--the Sunbonnet Sue christmass one with the batting and backing and got it all basted and even started hand quilting it tonight---
THANKS FOR ALL YOUR COMMENTS ON MY WINTER WHITE QUILT--I did a rush job on it and as it had been a while since I had hand quilted--my stitches are not small--but it is for me and I do stitch larger than most--cause when someone looks at my quilts I want them to "see" that they have been hand done and not have to try to figure out if it was done by hand or machine--at least that is my story and I will stick by it!!!!!!!!!
Best to you all in your projects this week---Hugs, Di
