Okay, this weekend didn't turn out how it was planned! It all started when I went to cut my 12" squares for my stitch along project as mentioned in week 3 rules. The fabric I had, wasn't big enough to cut two 12" squares so it was back to the drawing board I had to go. No problem, I soon found another fabric that I felt would work just as well. This fabric was black with brightly colored dots. I'm thinking I must have a thing about dots this month!
We have some very exciting news! While most retailers are having to put their prices up, ours are coming down.
I hope you will join me in the fun free quilting class. So much to learn! Use my templates or your own to make a beautiful book cover or tablet cover. I've had so much fun over the last few weeks making many of these.
August Stitch Along Gallery is now here. How about joining in for something a little different and fun? If you miss week one rule, check them out here: Week 1 Rules
This week I've been playing with paper and tvyek. I really like the effects you can get with tvyek, but don't really know good places to use it. I think this week it should work quite well. So what did I do? (If you missed the rules, you can find them here: Rules Week 1 and Week 2)
Welcome back to our second week of August Stitch Along rules. This week we are going to do something a little more challenging, just for fun. If you feel it is too challenging, then use whatever method you prefer.
The weather in Maryland has been great for vegetable garden with plenty of rain and mild temperatures, but that didn't stop Gin Keim completing her "Sewfasst" project made in Barbara Dieges online class. With Barbara's quick strip piecing techniques you not only save on time but also on fabric too.
I had fun gathering up some things for this month's stitch along challenge. The first week is always reasonably easy in that sense, it is more difficult thinking up what sort of challenge we will do next! I need to start taking in some notes during the month to help me out for the next month...
B is for birthday and also for Bonus. This month we have 5 Sundays so that's a bonus and this month is also my birthday month so I thought that might be a good reason to select the letter B. B is also for Blue (my favorite color) and balloons which of course is associated with birthday. Let's put it all together and see what we can come up with.
