Design Wall Tuesday!

I know I am a day late but I wanted to show you the monogrammed pillow.  It is not quite a pillow yet but it will be by the end of the week.  The hand embroidered monogram is done.  I am thinking of offering this in my etsy shop as a custom order.  What do you think??

I had to put this picture in - my baby just love lying on the laptop!!

Have a great day!!

No time for stitching

Lately I have been helping my husband building our new shed. We have been working every night after work and that gives me little time for stitching.

I am working on a monogrammed pillow for a wedding we are going to out of town.  But when I get inside and cleaned up it is after 9pm and I am tired.  I sure hope this thing is done this week.  Also June is a crazy month for birthdays, weddings, and graduations.  When will it stop. 
After ranting about that I still have managed to get my sewing room cleaned out after the quilt show and am ready to get to work making some new stuff for the deck with the outdoor fabric I bought last year.  Oops!!!  New pillows, table cloths etc.  I am just hoping for some warm weather to enjoy the deck.
What do you think of the fabric.  Hopefully I will have something to show you by next week.

I also have a million ideas running around in my head for new patterns.  There is something about manual labour that makes me creative.  I just have to get them out of my head and onto paper and then samples made. 

Hope you are all have a great day.

Design Wall Monday!!

I has been such a busy month.  I am finally having time to breath and get back to my posting.
Today I will be sharing with you some pictures from our local guild's quilt show as well as my design wall project.
Our guild is celebrating it's 20th anniversary this year as well as our city is celebrating it's 100th anniversary and of course the 200th anniversary of the war of 1812.  There are a lot of things going on in our community for these celebrations.
We had our quilt show and it was a great success.  I will shamefully tell you that I won a ribbon for my "Garden of Trash" quilt.  A small wall hanging made of recycled materials(pop cans, candy wrappers, dryer sheets, magazine papers etc).

Have a great day!!
