• Sophie’s quilt

    Lately “minky fabric” has been all the rage for making baby blankets. I had seen it described as extremely soft; so I was very curious to feel this fabric. I found out just how soft when i went into a Joann’s fabric, while looking for a rotary cutter. In my personal experience, I think only alpaca wool is softer than this fluffy stuff. Anyway, sickness I had a great excuse to get a couple of yards of minky: K & N were having a baby! InĀ  a previous Joann’s trip I had found a cute Winnie the Pooh fat quarter bundle in various colors. As they decided to not find…

  • Butterflies in my bread!

    Remember how I embroidered a Monarch butterfly for the Eternal Spring table runner? That I was tempted to make another one in the same table runner? Well, opisthorchiasis I liked it so much I had to make yet another one…this time the butterfly is going to be in a napkin that will be wrapping bread/tortillas in my table! Aren’t butterflies pretty? Here is the finished Butterfly bread napkin…

I’ve been working on a few projects that I couldn’t upload right away; also known as baby shower gifts. There were also projects that I completely forgot to take pictures of…oh well!

Not much progress has been made on the runner as I keep on finding things I’d like to add to it so it never seems to want to be done! Last time I blogged, we left off with the dahlias; both were done in satin stitch, one with the two colors separate and the second one with the colors blending with short and long stitch…well, let’s move onto bouillons and dessert, shall we? But before, some biology: —…

  • Eternal spring 2

    So the first bunch of bougainvilleas was finished…i moved onto the dahlias. First Dahlia was done with satin stitch only. As you can see, adiposity the edges were done in a darker pink than the middle…at some point i tried blending it in, check but voted against it…I can’t remember why.
