Annabelle's Adventures

Well, hard to believe but October is just around the corner!  I have Blocks 3 and 4 of Annabelle's Adventures ready on Craftsy.   Blocks 3 and 4.
 Here's a peek:

In Block 3 you will find Annabelle collecting her basketful of shamrocks.  She also found her lucky four-leaf clover!  The shamrocks are three dimensional made with wool felt.

For Block 4 Annabelle has her yellow raincoat and umbrella.  She's having a great time splashing about in the puddles left over from those April showers!  :))

Little bit of red

Here's a peak at something new I have been doing.  Some red work!  First two blocks of my version of the Twelve Days of Christmas.  A small beginning...a few more blocks to stitch before any assembly.  Of course there will be wool felt, too!  Some hearts and swags and flowers.  ;)

There's always something in the works around here!

Lots of big news to share.  Yes, yes, I know...where have I been?  Preparing new things, getting ready for today!  I have opened my own store on Craftsy!  I have my very first pattern, "Annabelle's Adventures" available now.

Annabelle's Adventures is a BOM (really two blocks per month) for my fun, embellished bunny!  She has patchwork, wool felt and regular applique as well as lots of extras...beads, buttons, metallic threads, as well as ribbons.

Here's a peek at the first block:

Annabelle is all set to bring in the new year.  Her sash can be used to stitch the date the year the quilt is completed.   She has some pretty ribbon for her hat and a few beads for her clothes.  After a few simple embroidery stitches (running stitches, back stitches, satin stitches and chain stitches) she is ready to celebrate!
The blocks will  be available around the first of each month for the next six months.  I would love to have you join me on this brand new 'adventure' for myself and Annabelle.
