Rose-breasted Grosbeak

Hope you aren't getting tired of my felt projects! They are so fun to make. The tracing and cutting is the hardest part.

Latest felt project

This one is for my other daughter and her DH. They used to have a baby blue VW bug. The pattern called for a green felt Christmas tree, but I customized it to their mid-century modern decor and made a tinsel tree!

Birthday gift for granddaughter

Since I don't go out anywhere right now, you all know why, I used a pattern that I had and flannel from my stash to make granddaughter Addie a nightgown. Then I ordered an 18" doll dress pattern and had just enough flannel for a matching nightgown. First time making a doll dress!…

Another felt project

Made this for my daughter. She loves Fall and always hosts a pumpkin carving party around Halloween. Except this year of course.

MUNCH

Hi All! Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. I was busy for two weeks stitching these stuffies up for my two little granddaughters. I used such good fleece that my machine wouldn't sew through it to attach the arms, legs, and ears. So I had to hand stitch those in. But it was definitely worth the effort. I love how they came out. …

Felt Monarch

Here's my latest slow-stitching project. Been working on this for many many evenings in front of the TV. Two views, one butterfly:…

tannenbaum table runner

Been working on this since February, I believe. Just finished it. I hand quilted the straight lines; the wavy lines within the tree branches are by machine.

Olson style face mask

Here's one I just made today. After I took this picture, I made a filter using some interfacing I had on hand. Slipped it behind that white panel in the first view of the mask. I think it will work well enough. I heard the vacuum cleaner bags had to be HEPA bags to work the best. I don't have any. If I hadn't found the interfacing I was going to try a coffee filter.…

New friend

Hi all -- I don't have anything sewing related to share, but I thought you'd like to meet my new friend who has been visiting my neighborhood. This is my first opportunity to get a picture, and now I see he's just getting antlers! I've learned this is a piebald deer.…

Christmas stocking

Well, guess who this belongs to?!! Finally finished. First time I experimented with the lettering stitch on my sewing machine, too. Trial and error, but I like how her name on the cuff came out. The back is made with her daddy's army camo.…

Purse for Gigi

I made a little purse for my 22mo granddaughter. She loves slipping purses over her arm and walking around with them. …

LOVE quilt

I usually only share on the Giftie forum, but I'll share here today. This is what I'm currently working on. It's a pattern from Sam Hunter of Hunter's Design Studio. These are the colors she made hers with and I just loved them so much I decided to use the same colors for a gift for my niece's wedding. This is just the top. I'm almost done quilting it. Now both of my daughters want me to make one for them too! This picture does not do the colors justice though.…

Big stitch - first attempt

Well here it is. This is my second block. The first one was just straight lines and the stitches were hard to see in the photo.  The stitches in the center of this one don't show up very well either but you can certainly see the brown area.  I used a chalk pencil to make my arcs.  Couldn't get that rocking motion going so it's pretty much stab stitching in some areas. I'm blaming the Warm n Natural batting as someone here said it would make things difficult. Not sure if my stitches are…

hand quilting question

Hi Everyone,

I posted a question on another forum but I'm afraid it's getting lost in other conversations. You know, getting pushed along to another page. So I thought I'd post it here too for more input. Here it is, copy/pasted:

Hey ladies, guess what I've been doing since yesterday? Finally, I'm quilting a top I pieced a long time ago. Actually the piecing was started in 2012. This is the one I learned piecing on (bad English, I know). Just…

embroidery

Everyone was so nice with my request for advice here. So I thought I'd share what I just finished with an embroidery project. I haven't embroidered in years. This is a gift for my best girlfriend; she gave me the dish as a Christmas gift one year and it inspired my idea to do some embroidery. I'm quite happy with it. I padded the embroidery with a bit of batting, so I couldn't fit the glass back in the frame, but it still looks nice.…

looking for advice

So I need some advice. I made a quilt back, but I like it too much to be a backing for that particular quilt! I want it to be a front. So I have it laid out (a little sloppily, sorry) with a piece of fabric I'm thinking of using as a backing.  I know backings don't necessarily have to match the front, but do you think this looks good at all? It's CT fabric, called Soaked.  The patchwork is done in CT's Urban Odyssey, which goes back to 2012 at least. I hope this is a good enough picture to…
