Hi Everyone, today I have some great news, the carpet is going into my new studio this morning YAY, I’m so excited to be getting so close to the move, which will be full of un-packing more boxes (hmm could be another un-boxing video coming up), stacking shelves, purring of my sewing machine (as I’m behind on a few things), cutting kits, and more…stay tuned.
I’m just finishing the label for Zach’s quilt (I should have done a Kite label to keep with the theme and maybe I will, but his theme for the baby shower was ducks so this is still suiting), it seems like I’ve been working on this for a while but hey it’s one of the first quilts I designed from top to bottom, I really LOVE the colours and I’m a bit sad to see this one come to an end….good thing I’m finishing up the pattern and it will be kitted soon enough 🙂
Besides painting, painting and more painting, I haven’t done much sewing but I did finish the embroidery on A Kittens Tale Block of the Month (One) and I’m planning to launch this one in a couple of weeks sooo if you are still debating starting a cute and easy wall hanging quilt come and join us here. Two options full kit (dupioni silks, embroidery needles, silk pins, silk flosses, yo-yo maker, sewing machine needles, private blog posting with step by step instructions and more $25/month) and also a Pattern only option $15…
Their cute little faces, and I LOVE working with the silk floss, they glide through so beautifully…
Before I forget to mention, these are my new 3 favourite things:
the 3.5″ x 18.5″ Gingher Ruler, this little baby I’ve been using so much lately, it’s the perfect length and width, also the copper topped embroidery needles, love these AND this thread holder you see is made by and excellent craftsman, custom made for Pastimes Online..will be for sale shortly.
This thread keeper, is so perfect for applique and doing binding, keeps your needle in the right place (magnet on side) and your thread always at the “ready” position.
I’ll be at my Lakdside Quilters Guild “Quilt til You Wilt” day on Saturday which is always full of fun and interesting projects, stories and more 🙂 Can’t wait!!!
Until next time, have a happy and creative weekend,
