My apologies the lightening isn’t too good at the moment. Here are some of the projects that I’ve been working on.
New since Monday is the Jane Austen Chawton Cottage WIP. I started these a couple of years ago. The beautiful charm squares for the pieced blocks were kindly sent to me by Tilde. Thank you once again Tilde :) I finished hand piecing the little diamonds while on holiday last year. Today I finally got around to printing out the larger diamonds using Jane Austen Inklingo collection. I also printed out the setting triangles around the edges. Tomorrow I will hopefully start the stitching together. I will do this bit by machine. I would like this baby finished by the end of the month :-D
I have also done a couple more of the Temecula 12 days of Christmas mini mystery. I’m actually keeping up with this one the blocks are so simple and there’s only 3 more days left.
The little red asteriks block is from the Craftsy new BOM. I’ve decided to make mine 6 inch finished and to use red and neutrals.
The Maple leaf is 6 inch finished also. This is for a BOM on an online group of which I am a member. Again, I’m choosing to make it smaller than the 12 inch block published.
The little cat face is crocheted. I made it a while back and have it pinned up there, just because. Same with the extra Leanne House embroidery block. I think I will use this block in a little gift for someone special. The little basket is in Jo Morton fabrics. It was a swap on the JM Yahoo Group. I didn’t participate but I made up one block… again, just because ;))
On my sewing table on the right I have a tray with a Dear Jane block in progress.
The magazine below my design wall is the one with the crocheted shawl pattern, which I am in the process of un-crocheting.
I also made another little house. It is the red one. Here is a close up of the two together:I rotary cut and machined the bottom part of and chimney area. Freezer paper pieced the roof section. Then hand pieced the side sky pieces, where as I paper pieced all parts of the first one (top) except the side sky bits which I machine pieced on. Not sure what I will try next, LOL..
Now I’m ready for bed!! Gute Nacht and God Bless!
