Since I wasn't able to upload pictures last night from
my laptop to blogger...today's post is going to be like
killing giving 2 birds with 1 stone home"
Okay...I know that's not how the saying goes. But who
wants to kill birds? Not me...
I'm gonna post about the tidbits from the end of 2011
WIP Wednesday linking to FRESHLY PIECED
(...if you would like to see more fun WIPs click
on the Freshly Pieced link)
I made this quilt for a friend who has been ill
for awhile and is using a wheel chair. Dog-gone it,
shoot!... I didn't get a better picture. These clips are my
favorite binding "holders"...a LOT less dangerous
and a WHOLE lot less painful than pins.
This is an embroidery quilt that I've started.
I bought a quilt kit with the embroidery designs from Dave's
Bernina in St George. Tammy, one of the ladies who work
spent many hours, several days to help me with the setting
up my machine to make these beautiful designs. Thank YOU
Tammy, you were so patient! This is WIP. I need to
embroider more blocks and piece the top.
This is a "Big Daddy" kit that I bought from
Broadbent's a LQS. The quilt consists of all 8.5" squares.
This is quilted and off the long-arm but, still needs it's
binding sewin on... another WIP.
This is another "Big Daddy" pattern (all 8.5" squares). There was
a similar kit at Broadbent's. But, I decided to use some of my
stash along with a few new prints. It still just a top without
A Christmas towel
This was a "private embroidery lesson"...
with my good friend Maxine. It seems that I still
need her as a safety net when I do machine embroidery.
Someday, maybe I will "graduate" to doing it
ALL by myself. =)
**I do have several knitted, crochet, fiber
finishes from 2011. I'm gonna try to post those
in a few days on my other blog....
and.... last but, not least...
something REALLY cool happened before Christmas..
I WON! ....a super duper prize from....
This is a great book with projects that you
can make with just ONE skein/ball of yarn.
OH!! and yes...
headband is handmade!!
I LUV the colors!! The photo doesn't do
justice to the purpl-eee/blue/lavender variations.
The knit pattern is sooooo pretty too!
Thank YOU, Mareth!
