It's located upstairs in the bonus room and is even set off from the rest of the house by a little ante-room which we use for our home office. When he sees me heading for the stairway, he always asks, "Are you off to the Ivory Tower now?" Yea, he asks that a lot =^..^=
So here's a little update of what's going on in the Ivory Tower....
Here's another little sneak peak at my progress. It's almost done -yeah!!!
Can you see the wonderful aqua blue metallic thread I used for quilting this gorgeous peacock? YUM!!!
My day for the Dare to Dresden Blog Hop is Tuesday, so be sure to come back ;*D
I haven't had an opportunity to work on my slow stitching projects, but my granddaughter Emma has really been enjoying embroidery since she learned how to do it this past summer. This is her latest project. She continues to improve - her stitches are getting smaller and neater. We still need to work on french knots, and she wants me to teach her how to do a satin stitch for filling areas. I love her choice of colors. She took all of these separate motifs from a book and put them together in this little vignette - very creative!
Well, not really :*) I didn't do any shopping this week - yay me!!! But for those who missed yesterday's post, I thought I'd share this wonderful gray text fabric I pulled from my stash for this block....
Can you see how the gray text print adds an extra layer of yummy to this Lone Starburst block? Oh yeah, I'm loving it!!! And I especially love that I had it in my stash - that feels like free to me LOL!!!
It's coming along, slowly but surely. I got four more Block A's done Friday at sit-n-stitch with friends, and there are only 6 more to go. All the Block B's are done and most of the setting triangles. I'm still hoping to have it done by the end of the month to complete my Get It Done project list.
So what's going on in your Ivory Tower?
Hugs & Blessings!
