It will be very interesting to see if these come together to make a few decent blocks!
I traced off the fusible shapes for the February Hootie last night while watching TV....
I still need to dig into these crumb jars and whittle them down.....
|Just look at all those yummy little scraps just waiting to become a gorgeous little quilt!!!|
I have a few ideas of what I might like to do with them, but I probably won't decide for sure until I sit down and start playing :)
And after I finished tracing the Hootie pieces last night, I sat back and relaxed with some knitting. Before I knew it, Wingspan was DONE - WOOHOO!!!
There are supposed to be 8 "wings" but as you can see from the tiny ball of yarn remaining, I didn't have enough for another wing. I think this will be fine, though, since I'm built rather small - at least from the waist up LOL!!! This still needs to be blocked, but all the ends are worked in and it is ready to go! This will knock 400 yards off my stash yardage :*)
So what's in the works for me today? First, I'm excited to show you the February Bertie wall hanging that I finished embroidering this week....
Isn't this just too darn cute?
|One last peek!!!!|
Later on, I will be joining Kathy's Quilts doing some Slow Sunday Stitching on my little hand-applique Miniature Heart Blooms while watching the Super Bowl!
You can tell from the red hearts on the left that this was an early attempt at hand applique! I was trying to do them by needleturn, but they are not very smooth. I may end up taking them out and redoing them..... but then again, maybe not. From past experience, I've learned that sometimes it doesn't really show that much when looking at a completed quilt. Since this will be for my own personal enjoyment, I may decide to leave it as is :*)
I'm also hoping to get a few of these pieces for Rose Medallion prepped with the luscious oriental fabrics - I'm really anxious to see how that's going to look!!! It's been quite a while since I played with the orientals - a task that I enjoy way too much LOL!!!
Also linking up with Judy's Design Wall Monday & Connie's Tuesday Linky Party :)
I wish a lovely week for you all!!!
Hugs & Blessings,
