DONE!!

My little UFO Challenge Quilt from  2014 is done!  It's always a nice feeling to stitch on that binding... but that feeling is even sweeter when the quilt top has been sitting around for awhile!

 I BIG stitched quilted around each round of logs and then stitched around each leaf and flower...twice!


Here's the top right corner...You can the wee red flange border acting as a little pop of colour before the black star border was added.


Bottom left corner....


Now I'm off to the next UFO!  This is the year to get'er done!


How about YOU?  Have you finished off any UFOs lately...?  And please don't tell me that you don't have any!  My fingers are in my ears..."Lalalala..."  Nope.  Don't want to hear it...

Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Stitching!~P

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
