I was on a "stitchin" mission today and did not even know it!!!!
First thing after breakfast--
I always hand quilt a little--or alot---
and you all know I am working hard on my ABC quilt--
I have been waiting for some cosmos thread to come in to do a blanket stitch around the last two rows of the alphabet--
so in the mean time I did have some rows done
and so I have been doing the hand quilting on them--
I came to this one row of homespun blocks and decided they where "too" plain in the centers and I really wanted to do something "neat" in those centers--
so here goes-----
there is 5 blocks in this row--
so in the center one I did this heart--
Then in the other 4 I did--
a cat with a bow around her neck--
See--then I did some more hand quilting on the pointed fabric pieces going around the block!!!
Then after a quick bus trip just before lunch to Wal mart for chips, chocolate and bread!!!!! and coming home and having lunch it was off to the sewing room--
when I came out--
this block was all done--
We had gotten March's black and white block already--so it is done!!!
Then I traced off two blocks to stitch for this years bom--
(what--you thought you heard "Di" say she wasn't really going to do any this year???)
Welllllll--luckily I am "woman" and woman can change her mind!!!!
The first one is from the Raspberry Rabbit--
This was January's block--I just kept picturing it with some beads--
so I finally had to give in and try it--
I like the way it came out--and ---
this will not be a quilt or wall hanging--
this will go on the front of a tote or something and will probably be a gift for a give away---sooooo!!!!
The second one I did was the first letter for the Home Sweet Home quilt--
I love sayings like that--and I did try to stay blind and deaf to the calling of this quilt--
I remembered I had this jelly roll and I decided I really had to make this quilt soooo-
I could use up this jelly roll--
Ok so far--but as I was stitching this first letter--
I remembered another set of charm packs I had and wondered if I would like them instead--
and while I was looking for this set of charm packs--
in the my charm pack drawer--
I found this set also--
Now what to do---what to do??????
Which set do you like?????
Hey this sounds like a plan to me--
see ya tomorrow!!!
