Weekend Sewing

Posted on December 10th, by Amy in work in progress. 5 comments

I had a busy week last week, which meant I didn’t manage to get to my sewing machine at all, but I made it a priority over the weekend! I hope you had a good weekend – I had been feeling restless without any machine time (relate much?) and love how sewing soothes my soul.

First, I have a sneak peek! These are Field Study by Anna Maria Horner, paired with a Herringbone in Willow, by My Mind’s Eye.  I’ll have to share more of that at a later date, but I’m pleased with my progress!

This is a bee block for the lovely Emily Herrick – she sent everyone a different color, and paper patterns for the “color wheels”.  Our only job was to piece them, and Emily is planning to applique all the wheels to a white background.  Can’t wait to see this one come together!

This Dessert of the Month set has been the most fun to work on! There’s no deadline (obviously!) and I can pick up the little project and just stitch.  If you are interested in a fun email once a month the Frosted Pumpkin has a new sampler that has just been released! If I finish by the end of the year, I will let myself sign up for another.

The best part is – my girls want to learn to cross-stitch!  I need a few more little hoops and some kits, like my grandma used to give me.  I think it will be a fun inside project for the cold winter months ahead.

I hope your week is off to a great start!

    I remember being delighted when my daughter learned to cross stitch ; ) she’s on her second quilt now too. Enjoy stitching with your girlies!

    I spent my weekend trekking to Moria with my boys. 12 hours in a dark theater eating pop corn watching The Lord of the Rings trilogy one after the other, extended editions, on the big screen. Not a needle nor thread in sight, but it was okay because they loved every minute….and I was with them.

    The rest of the week should be a different story!

    I love the color wheel, that should be really beautiful when its done. I remember my nana teaching me to crochet and making little kits for me, I was always so excited when I got to go and spend a few days with her and she would teach me to knit, crochet, sew, embroider and cross stitch. Having 3 brothers the one on one girl time was so much fun!

    I so understand…no sewing time makes me one cranky momma. I love that your girls want to learn cross stitch. I’ve been doing that sort of needle work since I was young. I can’t wait until my own daughter gets the bug.
