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!

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!

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!

Slow Sunday Stitching

I have finished stitching Farm Girl.

She is washed and pressed.

Farm Girl finishes at 4.5″.

I need to find a suitable frame and then she will be ready for gifting.

At 7:30 am, it is dark and eerie, and it will stay that way all day.  I live in Washington state, so I am currently living under cover of thick smoke.  There is no going outside, except to work and back.  No work today, so I get to be home all day!  Yay!

Since Farm Girl is finished, I will consider my slow Sunday project to be free motion quilting on the Let’s Sew quilt.  I am certainly slow at it!

But I am making progress!

And today is a good day to spend quilting!

Slow Sunday Stitching

A small amount of hand work happened on the Farm Girl stitchery since last Sunday.

Good thing that there is no hurry.  Or what would be the point to a relaxing slow Sunday?

Farm Girl

I plan on a slow Sunday drive today, so may not stitch.  Sometimes one just needs to get out and enjoy the view.

Meanwhile…remember this?

Lets Sew Quilt Along

I haven’t forgotten either.

So in spite of the heat and the day job, I have been working on free motion quilting.

I hope to finish this project soon.  I’ll show better photos then.

Slow Sunday Stitching

I did not post updates of my slow stitching project last Sunday because I was blessed to spend the entire day with family!

So happy!

I do have an update for you, however.

I have completed stitching the alphabet letters!

Here is a last look at the letters before washing and pressing:

And here is a look at the washed and pressed letters:

I shall be cutting the letters apart and then I shall have to decide if I still want to make pincushions, like Jenny did, or make a wall hanging with them.

There is no hurry to make the decision, since I have a free motion quilting project currently under the needle.  I don’t want to set up the sewing machine for another project until I finish the quilt that I am working on (it has just been too hot to work on it).

I have already chosen another hand stitching project, and I will be working on it this Sunday.

The project is called Farm Girl, and comes from Australian Country Threads magazine Volume 5 Number 11…January 2006.

Farm Girl

I already have a certain someone in mind to gift this project to when I am finished!  She is a born and raised farm girl, so I think she will love this!
