It has been awhile.

Been going through a major slump and not feel motivated.

Finally got this finished.  Is from a Craftsy class.



Got the hand quilting done on my Celtic Heart.  Just need to bind it now.  Will show a picture when I get that done (other things keep getting in the way).

Working on Labyrinth Walk quilt for Tony (my son).  Should have the top finished within the next few days.

Did a CQ block for a swap was in a hurry to mail it and forgot to take a picture :(

What have you been up to?

Here is my latest block

This is a combination of 2 of the tasks from Kathy Shaw's ICQC104 class.



The fox is an embroidered slip.  The embroidery was done using 1 strand of machine embroidery thread.  Takes a long time but I think well worth the effort.



The nest is a silkie slip.  I basically took a silkie cut out (leaving a seam allowance) the part that I wanted then sewed just that part down.  I then took a second identical silkie and made another slip just using the lower part of the nest (next time I will use more padding).  It doesn't show in the picture but the button part of the nest does poof out a bit.



I have 1 more task to do then will be finished this class :)

Another CQ class task

I love Kathy Shaw's classes.  You learn to think outside the box so to speak.  The latest task was about using applique in CQ.  Never though about using it before.

This is the finished butterfly block, I added 3 broderie perse butterflies and swapped out the flourescent yellow butterfly for just a bright one.

Next task from Kathy's ICQC104 class

I want the emphasis on the butterflies not the flowers.  The blue and the purple butterflies are not sewn down yet.  I am going to see if I can find some butterflies to applique down which will work in their stead.  If not will sew these down.

Here is some of what I have been working on

Just got these finished they are for Kathy Shaw's ICQC104 class.



Have a few other things on the go as well but am waiting until they are finished to post pictures.

Am still alive and kicking

I know it has been awhile since I posted but was feeling down and wasn't able to do much.  I am almost fully recovered now and have started stitching again but can only do so for about an hour at a time.  Will have some pictures for you soon.
