Progress on Embroidery Projects

This embroidery will be used as the back of another tissue pack cover. The pink background was painted as part of the free Intermediate Crazy Quilt Class 102: Working with Paint, Dyes and Inks.

I also pieced a crazy quilt stocking featuring a cross-stitch of Santa from an Alma Lynn pattern that I stitched up at least a decade ago. I hope to have embroidery completed to share next month.

And, I finished page 3 of the retired Heaven and Earth Designs Freebie Santa and the Mouse pattern I have been working on. This is how it looked on June 24th.

Baby, it's hot outside!

With temperatures in the 90s not much is being done here creatively speaking, except some cross stitch and sock knitting. I avoid anything that requires me to drag out the iron so my Christmas sewing projects have been postponed a bit. I added another section to the Scandinavian Christmas sampler and stitched another Advent Animal.

Garden Progress

Merry half way through the year to all.

Not only has there been progress in my outdoor garden, my Merry Christmas Garden-block 2 is slowly blooming from this in March

Patriotic Tote Bag

This month, I combined a red, white and blue crazy quilt block and a couple of patriotic fabrics to make a tote bag following this tutorial. It will be a gift for someone that served in the Army.

I also made a fair amount of progress on my free Heaven and Earth Designs Santa and the Mouse chart. This is how it looked on May 25th.
