Slow Stitching Saturday...

Nothing new here...I will be doing more of the same...lots of slow stitching today...

 This little guy called for some BIG stitch hand quilting! I know...it's hard to see!   I love the look of the BIG stitches...
 and stitching helps to keep my mind off the heat!  UGH!  Only two more blocks to go!!

I'll keep you posted!

Have a super Saturday and happy stitching!~P

Gold, Silver and Bronze!...

Medals all around for these three wee pillows, stitched while watching the Olympics!  You can't beat good Buttermilk Basin patterns...true they are oldies but definitely goodies!


Love this one teamed up with my wee strawberry pillow...PROVING that you can never have too many berries in one bowl!!  YUM!


 And some close-ups!  Yikes I need to buy a new lint roller!


There you have it!  The patterns are from a series called "Crows Thru the Year" by Stacy West and being old, they may be hard to find!  I found mine at a Thrift Shop sealed in a ziploc bag looking very tattered and torn...but for 50 cents it was a SCORE!  Happy hunting and remember to dig deep!:o)

Have a FUN Friday and Happy Stitching!~P

Another One Bites the Dust...

Put your dancing shoes on and form that Conga Line....we have another finish!

I can't believe that this one is DONE!  I got it finished relatively fast in my world of UFOs! :o))  as I started it in 2014!!:o)  Slow and steady...well maybe NOT that steady!  I tend to stitch the wool blocks, let it sit, stitch the machine pieced blocks, let it mellow and sit, stitch them all together, let them stew and SIT...well you get the idea..there's always A LOT of sitting!

This is a Primitive Gatherings' pattern called 'Home For the Holidays'.  I made the quilt entirely from my stash...and ordered the border fabric (online) as it is a Primitive Gathering fabric and has the little reindeer on it... just like the wool reindeer in the bottom left row...just too cute not to!

                                         
I didn't want to mess up the quilt so I kept the quilting simple...a meander around the wool motifs.  Not the greatest but she is done!



 This one I am keeping and will hang in the dining room every Christmas!  It's just too cute not to!

I caught up with hubby out in the backyard...he was painting the deck bench so I roped him into holding the quilt for pictures!  Sure hope his hands were clean!!  Oh well, paint or no paint, she is done!  Start up that band, grab the person in front...and kick those feet nice and high! 

U-F-O kick!  U-F-O KICK!  U-F-O KICK!  Yup, getting a UFO done is always reason to celebrate!!  

Have a terrific Tuesday and happy stitching!~P
