for the year. Can you believe it? I think we all say the same thing, each and every year. Well, too bad it hasn't slowed down for any of us!
I havent stitched much the later part of the year, I just havent felt like it. In the last couple of weeks, I did manage to take time and I made 2 quilts. I am excited about them and looking forward to making more. In fact, I just pulled out 3 I have 'kitted' up. Do you say that for quilting-- kitted? Either way, I am looking forward to those.
First up, I know that alot of you have had posted a year in review and I think that is so wonderful to go back and look at the amazing progress that was accomplished this year. I have completed several beautiful samplers-- coming to mind of course is Dutch Beauty and Elizabeth Mears.
Below, is La D Da- Peace House. I LOVE this frame on this sampler. It is 2 3/4" wide on this super cute I think 5 x 7-- 40ct piece. Where oh where to hang them?!!!!
This coming year, I am not sure what will be accomplished on the stitching front, I have a start picked out for tomorrow, but I don't know if I will start it tomorrow, or in the next little bit. I am still plugging away on Jane Tindall, and finally starting the animals on the bottom. It seems like I have been stitching on her for years. But slow and steady right? Maybe she will be my first finish? I have to pull out my stash and play with it for a bit, perhaps I will get the bug back.
Until then, my desire for beautiful fabrics for gorgeous quilts continues :) There are sooo many options and I want to quilt them all!! LOL.
In the beginning of November you might remember I had made a quilt with my mom. We both used the same fabric grouping and each made something different. I had mine quilted over Thanksgiving and I finished the binding last week. It is amazing the difference of when you finish it. It is the equal to framing your sampler right?
The 2nd quilt I bought also as a kit from a shop that was having an end of year inventory sale and I was thrilled to be able to participate. I bought this of course among other things-- kitted up a few other quilts. I am trying to be brave and piece the fabrics together. I have no issue changing the colors on my cross stitch, so quilting shouldnt be that hard right? It really has to do with how much fabric, like I mentioned before in a previous post.
Until next time, enjoy the rest of 2013, and Happy New Year to all of you!!!!!!
