Uggghhh... LOL I typed the heading and clicked publish before I typed anything. It's gonna be a great day!
Thank you all for your comments on my last post. They were all spectacular ideas. We are all just so creative! I knew I could depend on my friends for inspiration. I really LOVED the 13 star idea BUT since I am still so new to quilting I figured I'd stay simple. I decided on this...
As you can see I am hand quilting it. It's gonna take me awhile and I'm not so sure it'll be done by July 4th, but hey I at least started it right? Steve said on my next one he would help me with the layout of the 13 stars. My NEXT one???? I do have other fabric for another one. WAIT what am I saying another project!!!! LOL. Alright I took all your advice on the fusible webbing. I actually had some in my stash o' craft stuff!!!! Ummmm... we won't get into that part of the project. LOL. I then taught myself the left handed crafter to do a blanket stitch. It's not perfect, but I can live with it.
Notice I didn't do a close up because I found the points of the star difficult to stitch. So enjoy it from far away. LOL.
In this next picture what do you see that's different?
I made this little bag. I saw someone in Country Sampler had one on a peg rack so I figured it would look so cute above my little desk. I think I should write something on the chalkboard. Oh yea $0.00 dollars spent I already had everything!!!! This project took all day. Well, OK the coffee staining did. It was so humid the stupid thing wouldn't even dry in my oven! So while that was drying I worked on the following project.
This is the first machine stitched piece I've done. Look familiar? LOL. Yep left overs from my quilt I made a few months back. Hmmm.... do I here someone say how about giving that away in a giveaway??? huh what???? Hmmmm.... LOL
Oh and I asked my customer if I could show their bonnet I made them and they agreed. I thought it came out awesome.
Alright all my "window peepers" LOL here's a few more pics before I close. I am on my way to the doctor today AGAIN for my back. I have now developed sciatica in the last week and am still having mid-back problems too. I am sleeping sitting up in 2 hour increments. You'd think I'd get more crafting done!!! LOL. So... who knows my career as a paramedic may be over before I know it.
On with the show...
Don't you hate me for teasing you??!!!
