Bow Ties, Farm Girl Finish and Birdhouse Updates


Bow Tie Leader/Enders

If I counted correctly (and that is questionable), then I should have 768 bow tie blocks in this basket.

That is enough to sew these into bigger blocks for a layout.

Hubby made a frame for the Farm Girl stitchery, so she is completely finished and ready for gifting!

Farm Girl

I love how she turned out!

The birdhouse project (I really should name this thing) has gone from the designing stage to the fused applique stage.

Birdhouse Wall Hanging

I really like it now…definitely enough to finish it!

Birdhouse UFO

This is my first post using the ‘new’ WordPress editor. I am a bit lost, but I am figuring it out. Except that I cannot seem to make photos clickable anymore. Hmmmmm?

*I have figured out how to make my photos clickable!  At least for now!

Quilt On!

  1. The new editor is a little tricky. Things don’t happen like they did before. Farm girl looks great! Can’t wait to see fancy quilting on the birdhouse.


    • I don’t like the new editor, but I will learn it eventually, and then it will be okay.

      Machine applique is up next for the birdhouse, and then I’ll think about how to quilt it. Thanks, Donna! 🙂


  2. I just clicked in your photos and they opened up as just the photo, so it must be working! Love the bird house with sunflowers and all those bow ties, wow!


    • Thanks, Kathy! That is the way that I like to have my photos…hopefully, I can keep it that way. I am good for now, anyway. 🙂

      That birdhouse has become a fun diversion! Ha, ha!

  3. Wow! That’s a lot of bow ties!!! I love the bird house quilt, very cute 🙂


  4. I clicked on your original post to ‘date’ the ‘cheddar’ because I remember using it in a few embroidery items (with lime green floss, no less!) in the late 1970s. Turns out that color is still around – and as it is with cilantro, you either love it or hate it. I love it! (both)
    But, darn, that’s alot of bow ties!


    • What goes around, comes around…so it is with cheddar (I do not, however, want to see avocado appliances back). I love the cheddar, also, Laura. I wonder what you made with the lime green floss…pillow covers or maybe tablecloths?

      Stitching up the bow ties slowly…filling small blocks of time, or time when nothing else is calling me…makes the creating of all those bow ties pretty easy. 🙂

  5. That’s a basket full of bow tie loveliness! I do like a leader and ender project on the go but I generally get carried away and it becomes the main project! Farm girl looks nice sitting in her new frame too.


  6. Hi Laura! WOWEE! That is a lot of bow tie blocks. I didn’t know there was a trick to make the pictures clickable. Hmmm. The new editor is something else. I find I have to go back and forth between the new and classic editor sometimes but I’ve trying to get rid of that crutch. Some features are really nice. ~smile~ Roseanne


  7. The frame for Farm Girl is perfect. I’m glad you persevered with the Bird House – funny how an abandoned project could become a favourite 🙂


    • Laura Conowitch

      The frame is made from wood from a torn down chicken coop…it is great to be able to repurpose it!

      I really don’t like to abandon projects, so I am glad that I stuck with the birdhouse. It wasn’t that hard to come up with a plan…just needed to force myself to make the time.😉


  8. Love the Farm House Girl with frame and all! WOW 768 Bow Ties! Great! Hugs
