New Project

Here is the first block for our new king size beds quilt, only 69 more to go........LOL.

I love the log cabin block and the colors are to represent the beautiful red clay hills, covered with greens of sage and pine. On the light side the second strip is the curtain fabric.

I guess this will keep me busy for a day or two..........VBG.

RR details

I am in a RR (round robbin) group with 5 other gals. We do about 3 rounds a year.

We have just begun a new round and this is Susan's block (stocking).

My goal was to bring the red and green down into the toe area. So using red rayon thread and green Sassa Lynne "Serendipity", I think I did it. Starting with the buttonhole stitch, in the red rayon, it needed something else so I used Carole Stamples templates to help me get good half circles, using a chain stitch for the outline. Next came another set of half circles in green and some dark green beads along the buttonhole stitch.

Next I wanted to dress up the edge of the lace that was already on the block, so with the green Sassa Lynne I created a row of herringbone stitches, adding 3 detatched chain stitches inbetween, simulating a flower, and some burgundy beads to dress it up.

The stocking is on its way to Karrin, next in line to work on it.

Fran's cell pouch

Here we have Fran R's cell pouch in its final stages (it is done now). Each of the fringe lengths are hand beaded. I did not have any purchased beaded fringe that would go.

I am sorry the picture is not very good, my camera just can not capture some things very well. Speaking of which, I can not find my camera cord anywhere........sigh. I know it is here somewhere, I used it last week, so frustrating. I wanted to post my progress on Susan's stocking, we are in a RR (round robin) together and I have the pictures but can't upload them without the dang cord. Where oh where could my camera cord be?

I hope
Fran like
her pouch.

I know I have been very quite on all my blogs. I have really struggled to make a come back from all the pre holiday madness. It is working, I am feeling better and as spring gets closer I know I will get my energy back.
Hugs to all, TTUNT.........(ta, ta until next time). Grin.
