.....it all began with one thread....

OK...where did the last week and a half go?  Here's one of the reasons:
Poor baby.  This is Klawd.  No, he is not going to the hairdresser's...he is wearing the latest in veterinary fashion...a soft "cone" collar.  Under that collar is a tube that was put in place to help feed him.  See the little bit of turquoise "sweater" he's wearing.  That covers his belly which had some very serious surgery.  Gallstones...which blocked the entrance to his small intestines....But the good news - he is on the mend and the tube will be coming out tomorrow.  Klawd will be one happy kitty. He is defnitely feeling much better and letting me know just how unhappy he is with all this stuff.
Bits of stitching did get done...here's my WIP on Eight Maids a Milking from the Twelve Days of Christmas from Nora Corbett.  Just her apron and the banner at the bottom to finish her.

A little bit of applique...my letter "E" from Merry Christmas to All.  Oops...I think I forgot to post the finished picture of my "M" for this one.  It still needs the bow to be appliqued as well as all the extra buttons and ribbons to be attached.

There have been a few sporadic stitches on a few other projects.  Nothing really worth showing at this point...but keep watching!

Seven Swans

Seven Swans a Swimming (a)
Well.....only one, really.  Isn't it pretty?  Seven Swans Swimming from Nora Corbett's Twelve Days of Christmas series.  I do like her interpretation of the twelve days, very elegant.

More sheep

   My sheep and little bird from Block #4 on my Born to Quilt...quilt. BLOCK #4(A)

A little preview of my newest project....

Monday, September 6, 2010


Ooohhh!  I started it!  I started it!  Born to Quilt, that is!  I had to begin with Block #4, which has two very cute sheep and a few little birds.  All the pieces have been appliqued...but everyone still needs their little faces, feet and accessories.  Peek #1
Peek #2
And, finally, Peek #3 with the little redbirds on their blue plaid background:
I know you can't tell what is what, just yet.  Off to complete all the embroidery and attach some pretty, little buttons I bought yesterday.  Speaking of which...OMG!  I spent a small fortune on "pretty, little buttons" for this quilt yesterday.  Hopefully, they will add that little something extra. :))

Tiny Town

Ta Da!!  Block #2 of my Tiny Town by Bunny Hill Designs.

A few extra embellishments...the ric rac trim on the houses.  It just seems that these should be more "gingerbread" type houses.
