Monday Making 2/20/17

Share What You Are Making

I've missed my sewing machine because I have been busy doing handwork.  Today I will be joining Beth for some 'making' time - I really need it!

I don't have permission to show this commission piece, but I can give a little peek.  Those elephants are about an inch tall.  Yes, I work tiny cross stitch along with my tiny quilting.  This will be blocked out today so it is ready for pick up.

Bleeker Street w/Wendy

My making will be to get to Part One of the Bleeker Street QAL with Wendy.  I don't plan on doing the big quilt, but making different sections into minis, table runners, and/or pillows.

  The white has a swirl in it - left over from one of last year's projects and needs using up.  And a tote with some left over layer cakes, FQs and pieces.  They need to find a purpose and I think this project will fit the bill.  Now to go wind some bobbins.

To our quilty friends on the West Coast - hope all are safe,
Sewingly Yours,

Such tiny little elephants- I'm sure the commission is exquisite!! Have you already decided what parts of the QAL will become what? I see so many options.

Those tiny elephants are so sweet, but I can see why you miss your sewing. Have fun today with it.

Your commissioned piece looks beautiful! Such tiny stitches. Bleaker Street looks tempting, but I better not.

The commissioned piece is very cute. Hope you got in lots of fun sewing time this week.

Thanks! We are drying out now. Lots of road challenges. A good time to stay home and quilt!
