Sunday stuff



Had a busy day today - bid farewell to our visitors, including driving them to the airport - they are all back home safe and sound and the Minnie Mouse ears which were left behind shall soon follow them home via the postal service, along with the Dear Jane block I made for Cathi recently - if I can find it. Tomorrow I have a sewing room clearout planned, so perhaps I will find it then...

Anyway, today I first made binding and attached it to the Twisted Mystery 4 Quilt - someday, I will be able to show you that quilt! Hoepfully I will get it sewn down in the next few days and it can go in the post.

I also made these postcards which are for the "W is for..." swap - the first two I did with a lovely variegated metallic thread and on the third one, the machine just decided it hated the thread and wasn't going to sew it any more. So the other three were done with a variegated rayon thread - needs must. And finally, I did four little houses for the November block lotto, which features Amish style houses. I hope to get four more done over the course of the month some time - we'll see how that goes.

Here's an update on my cross-stitch - before you get too impressed, this is two weeks' worth of work. I am nearly at a stopping point on this one - once I finish the bird section I am going to move on to something Christmassy. It will probably take another week to do the birds, though, as I have to do all the back-stitching. Joy! (Vicki, I know you'll sympathise with me on that one...)

I was going to list my new goals here, but this is getting long, and it's late, so I might do that tomorrow. Or I might just update the list in the sidebar without discussing them...

Oh, I never know what to comment on, everything is so lovely. I think the webs are adorable, love the fabric in the houses, and the cross-stitch - I'm very impressed.

Love those houses.

I never know how you manage to achieve so much in a short space of time.

Gorgeous cross stitch. I used to do a lot of that before I discovered other fiber arts. I have a more-than-half-finished Christmas stocking somewhere...

All of your work and especially the cross-stitch pictured is amazing! Like you. I love all the various fiber art crafts. I'm mostly into vintage feedsack and cloth but also have a passion for ATC's & collage art!
