Sometimes I forget that you are all not on instagram. lol So if you are, I apologize for the repeat pictures. But for those who aren’t, here’s a hint at what I’ve been working on lately!
I did a big fabric pull and I’m playing with these fabrics right now. The center print is a liberty print that I had JUST enough of and was the very last pull. It blends all of the color ways together. yay for amazing fabrics!!
I was doing some free motion quilting this week. I decided to play with the wood grain design. I don’t think I’ve had a chance to use it since my mini girl quilt. It’s definitely something that on a conventional machine is much easier for me with a SMALL piece. You really need to be able to move the piece quickly and smoothly. And that just doesn’t happen with the weight of a big quilt. So while I love this look, unless I get to play on a long arm machine, I won’t be doing it unless it’s a smaller piece.
I made the Rapunzel dress! Next in line for the pretty princess sew along! I have all the photos taken but I need to edit them and get that blog post up. But here’s a little sneak peak of a very happy girl in her new Rapunzel dress.
And one morning in desperation I tried teaching that girl how to “sew”. It was amusing and you can see here that we have a bit of work to do. She of course lost the needle immediately and was more interesting in throwing the disk from the yarn attached but it was a funny little moment. I thought you all might like seeing this three year old’s first attempt at stitching. We can only go up from here. lol
I hope you all are keeping busy too. I’m SURE you are. And I hope everyone has a lovely Easter! We have actually had two days in a row with temperatures above the 30’s. So it feels down right balmy! 😉
