I’ve Been Sick As A Dog…

6 May

I practically thought I was dying. I haven’t sewn anything in about 5 days, and I think I’m going through sewing withdrawals. It’s been rough, but I slept for 17+ hours last night, and I feel a bit better. So here it goes, I’m jumping back into my sewing room! Wish me luck!

Finished My Bargello Quilt, I Just Love The Accent Embroideries!

30 Apr

I finished it and it is currently in the washing machine. I’m so excited for the way it turned out. The Wonderfil thread I’m using is super awesome! Their variegated colors are just to die for! I think it has quite a bit of movement, and the embroideries just make it pop! I used a bright blue flannel for the backing as well as the binding, and I think it is just perfect! I just have to schedule the class for this fun quilt at work! Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to get back to a commission quilt.

I Washed The Scarves I Made… Amazing!

26 Apr

I made these this morning and last night, washed them up, and here they are. I made three of them, and all I want to do is make more, but I have a commission I am in the middle of, and I’m also out of wash away stabilizer! I did use some fancy thread sample I got from a friend. It’s called Wonderfil Dazzle, and I used it as cording with my cording foot, and it just turned out amazing! I didn’t have a bunch of it, so I used yarn on the other ones! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to get back to a Zelda quilt. Wish me luck!

Working On A Scarf Made OF Ribbon!!!!

26 Apr

So, I saw this tutorial on a website the other day, and I decided to change it up a bit and make a scarf made out of ribbon and fabric scraps! I just rinsed all the water soluble stabilizer off of them, and they are drying right now. I’ll post more pictures later today! Wish me luck!

Using Some Metallic Thread

21 Apr

So, we got these new thread holders at work, and they work great for metallic thread. I’m making these too throw pillows with the metallic thread, and I think it just looks marvelous! I’m not too sure what to use metallic thread for, any have any good ideas?

Playing With My New Wonderfil Thread

19 Apr

I’m working on a quilt for myself before I start my latest commission, and I’ve been adding embroidery to it, to help spice it up a bit! I got some of this marvelous Wonderfil thread at work. It’s marvelous! Randomly variegated color increments, and I just love it! Hopefully tonight I’ll putt it all together! Wish me luck!

Working On Some Paw Patrol Embroideries!

I’m doing some embroidery for a dear friend of mine over at Ray’s Sew Crafty. I’ve already done a couple of the dogs, but haven’t had a chance to take pictures of them yet. Hopefully I’ll be able to knock out quite a few more today. Wish me luck!
