It's been a while since I popped in here. I haven't been idle though! Things are always busy around here. With 4 teenagers, a husband, and 2 mini schnauzers we never have a shortage of work. Just feeding them, making sure they have clean laundry, and get driven where they need to go is more than a full time job!
I've finished 3 hand embroideries for flckr friends in the Hoop Up, Stitch & Send Swap and I've transferred and hooped up 2 more.
I drew this one up and stitched it for Marilyn's "Sweet Dreams" theme. I was inspired by artwork by Emily Martin of Inside a Black Apple, I'm really pleased with it.
I stitched up the next 2 for Quiltdad's Whimsical Woodland theme. One for the swap, and 1 bonus piece for doing such an awesome job organizing the swap. The colours on the next 2 aren't my usual palette but I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.
I drew this one up after viewing a quilted masterpiece by Judy Coates Perez on flckr. John sent the brown, pink , and blue flosses for his pieces. I am hoping the unexpected foliage colours add whimsy.
This bonus piece was inspired by the artwork of Valori Wells. I drew this up for John and stitched it up mostly using his colors.
I've also longarmed a few quilts for others and have 1 to do this week too!
This one was pieced by my friend Val and I quilted Feathers With a Twist on it. It turned out great.
