Friday the 13th

I didn't have a relevant title for this post so went with today's date ... good thing I'm not superstitious! Spending some time in my craft room this morning, organizing and thinking about what I want to get done next week. My steadfast companions ~ Miles and Louie ~ are hanging out with me, snuggled together on their pillow under a table …


I finished two pincushions from Patchwork Loves Embroidery by Gail Pan this week. I was recently the extremely happy and wildly lucky winner of this book, along with fabric and thread from Martingale. Here's the post, if you missed it. The bluebird pincushion is mine and the colorful, happy little house is for my newlywed daughter …



These are the sweetest hand-embroidery projects. Many of them are small, easy and quick to finish. If you want to try embroidery, Patchwork Loves Embroidery is a great place to start. My next project from the book will be the Garden Delight Needle Book …

A new great-niece is due in August and I purchased a charm pack of Bartholo-meow's Reef by Tim and Beck for Moda that I'm going to make her quilt with.


Such cute prints -- anchors and waves and fish and stars …


I've already designed the quilt for this new little love joining the family -- there will be embroidery. 

So many projects, never enough time ...
