Oh yes I do know today's date is--May 28th--but there is also a 'couple' 24's for today!!!
First up --is this week's heart block--
this weeks was just the saying with the ring of French knots all around it--like 5 rows of French knots, but you know me--gotta do something a bit different--so first I appliqued a fabric heart on the piece and then embroidered the words on--a heart button will go in the point of the heart--and I got 2 rows of French knots done before my wrist gave out!!
And I decided to start a new mystery stitch along by thelittleredhenonline.com-
And it is called Jack-O-lantern lane and it is done in wool--and there is a story that goes with the mystery--so that is 'cute'--I even got brave (or lazy--cause I didn't want to take time to go though all my wool scraps and find colors that might be close to what she has done--plus I was pretty sure I did not have an orange piece large enough for the pumpkin--) and ordered the kit--which also means I get the buttons!! We will be getting 2 blocks a month--on the 6th and 20th of the month --believe there is 6 blocks total--so here is Mr. Jack-
Wonder if it was the silly pumpkin or that sexy black cat that forced me to do this mystery????
And I got another embroidery piece finished that I got for my birthday--the little flowers are French knots--so had a 'knotty' week!!!!!
And-- I know you have been waiting on pins and needles to see my next heart quilt that I have been working on--
And here are "24" blocks I have appliqued so far--not a real theme going here-- just fabrics that I really like--and I have seen at least 2 more fabrics I want to order a bit of, to add to these hearts!!
And I have spent the last 2 days working on this mess--Button--Button--who needs a button--rather which button do I want to sew onto this baby sweater???
