At my quilt guild meeting in October we did a “make it and take it” Halloween embroidery block. I had never done this before and found out that I really enjoyed it! There was a real nice lady that even showed me how to separate the threads and said that I may have better luck with using 2 strands together instead of all 6. Oops! So fast forward to a few days ago when I pulled out the block and decided to finish it. That lead to another one and another one. I went sewing on Friday night and picked out some great new Halloween fabric and my project is almost compleated. I can not show a full picture of it until October because it is a surprise. The president of my quilt guild gave us a challenge to finish off the block, make it into something, and bring it back next October for a show and tell.
Now that all of the embroidery part is done my fingers are itching for more. So I picked up a couple of charm packs of my absolute favorite Moda fabric Sunkissed. I am going to join the online BOM hosted by Little Miss Shabby called Birdie Stitches. If you have not seen them yet you are really missing out!!! They are adorable. Go ahead …..go on over and take a peek….. and I dare you not to want to join in too! http://www.littlemissshabby.com/
Favorite fabric line + embroidery + cutest birdies ever = one very happy girl!
