My Stitch Along for December Week Four

I added beads to my block today, but not by hand. I used the sewing machine. I've done this before, in fact, I have instructions for how I sew these in one of my earliest patterns, A Second View.

To end the 2016 year of Stitch Along Challenges, we are going to add some beading or embellishments to our project. You can add any you like, beads, yarn, buttons, cord, lace or anything else you can think of. Then finish your project by binding it or making it into a pocket for a tote or even a cushion.

My Stitch Along for December Week Three

I've had a lot of fun stitching today - free-motion is my favorite and it is fun deciding what design to use to fill in each section. I'm going in blind, meaning, I have no idea where I'm starting or what thread to use or design to create. I'll let it grow as I work and make those decisions along the way, you know how they say "let the quilt talk to you", that's exactly what I'm doing.

This week is all about coloring. Coloring is a fun and relaxing activity and many adults are doing this now. It's almost as much fun as quilting so you can imagine what happens when you put the two together.

Week One is always an easy week for my Stitch Along Challenge as it usually means just gathering supplies. I did just that along with planning a little for next week's rules which I have not finalize yet. I'd better hurry as time flies quickly!

Is everyone ready for the last stitch along of the year? Where did this year go? We will be doing something quite different this month. Not too difficult because I know December is always a very busy time, but this challenge could be made into an extra little gift for someone if you finish it a little early. So here goes...
