So, since I've been working on a few projects for several years now, yes! I said years, I figured I need to stick to two things and get them finished. I have to switch between them so boredom doesn't set in. Here is what I've been working on. First...................
This wallhanging or perhaps a tablerunner, I began it last year during the fall season and just got the panel put together with the backing and got it bound. So this year, I'm going to get the little details I wanted to do on it. I am embroidering different sections of the panel. I have sewn the Boo sign, the ghost, hay, with different color thread.
Here is a better picture of the witch that I sewed her dress, hat, etc. And down below the little carriage with some green outlining. This project is one that I'm working on while I watch TV. I like those kinds of projects. Last weekend I watched football and sewed. Yes, I love football, NASCAR too!!
And lastly, what I have been working on in my sewing area for quite a while, this is gonna take me forever at my slow speed. This is the Civil War reproduction fabric that I am cutting into rectangles and squares. Just the cutting alone takes a long time and I'm not done with that yet. Then I have to sew the two together as you see here, next I have to sew each of these together several times to make a strip. Then I have to sew all the strips together, until I have a size big enough to cover a queen-size bed. I'll be working on this one throughout the winter, I'm sure.
I have other projects ready to go in the wings, such as two very cute patterns of folk-art applique and of course sewing. One for fall, and one for winter. These are something that I could do anywhere. Once I finish one of the above projects, I can begin one of these new ones. If you want to take a peek of what it might be, go visit this store, one of my favorites, The Raspberry Rabbits. Michelle has some wonderful felt wool kits and thread kits too. Check it out, and did I mention her adorable studio bunnies, Hannah and Harrington!
So, happy sewing, happy quilting, happy weekend to all!!
