LET THE PEOPLE CHOOSE -- SEWING

On the first Saturday of the month the People's Choice SAL run by Jo from Serendipitous Stitching occurs. And compared to August, I'm on time.

Unfortunately, I don't have much stitching that deals with sewing.  The spools are spot on while the quilt and kitty one may be a stretch:

Let the people choose -- Books

 

 On the first Saturday of the month the People's Choice SAL run by Jo from Serendipitous Stitching occurs. I am waaayyy late.


 The topic of the month is Books.  Unfortunately, I don't have any books stitched, just quotations from books.  Does that count??

Change of Plans

 
 
My stitching plan was to alternate between Rosewood Manor's Tulip Quilt Sampler and a new project, however, the Tulip Sampler is going so well that I've stuck with it. As of today, I have one quilt left and this beauty will be done.
 
 

 



 I began  this project in 2011 and stopped working on it in 2015.  I'm so happy to be nearing it's completion.  It's such a pretty sampler.

Thanks for stopping by.

Let the people choose .... butterflies

 

 


It's the first Saturday of the month so time for the People's Choice SAL run by Jo from Serendipitous Stitching. Thank you to Jo for hosting this SAL. This month's topic is BUTTERFLIES.


It appears I haven't stitched too many butterflies.  Here are a few I could find:






I need to remedy this lack of butterflies.


Santa, Tulips & Butterflies

My EGA group is having Christmas in July because we couldn't get together at Christmas time due to covid.  We usually have an ornament exchange and because I love this short, fat Santa from my Santa Sampler, I restitched him for it.  I think he will become a pillow ornament.

Since the Santa Sampler is done, I needed a new project and while gathering the stuff for it, I decided to work on an old unfinished project, Tulip Quilt Sampler from Rosewood Manor.  I haven't touched it in 6 years (I was in a bit of a stitching slump).  It only needs 4 more quilts added to it and it will be done.


Now, I don't really need a totally new project.  I do have quite a few wip's that need some luvin' but I'm going to start a new one anyways.  I have really been enjoying these samplers of 'whatever I feel like putting together' and so I'm going to do another one with a little twist.  This one is going to be based on the Randje per Week SAL and the Carriage House Samplings pattern 1814 Butterfly Collection.  I dyed some 36 count linen over the weekend and picked out some colors for it.


My plan is to alternate between the Tulip Quilt Sampler and the new Butterfly Randje Sampler.
