Where Did 2013 Go…..


It seems like just yesterday that I was asking about 2012 and now here it is almost 2014. 

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and that your New Year will be all that you hope for.  As always I appreciate you stopping by and love to read the comments you leave.

I have not been in my sewing room for a long time – life just kept getting in the way.  I have done quite a bit of cross stitch and recently had this piece framed.  It is “Birds of a Feather” designed by Brenda Gervais of With Thy Needle and Thread.  Brenda does such a lovely job with her designs.

I am currently working on this one and working with the silk thread is a real plus.  It behaves wonderfully. 

I planned to sew today, but I am not sure what I want to work on – do  you ever get that way?  I did make a challenge quilt, but I cannot show it until the fall. 

After all of the Christmas decorations are put away I  will be hand quilting this.  I am thinking way ahead and it will be for my grandson when he is grown up.  When he was just a little guy he loved to watch the birds.  I am still debating about what I want to do on the bottom I might just quilt the date into it.

Lovely sampler!
I think the heirloom quilt for your GS will be a certain treasure.
You are so prolific I'm sure you'll be back in your sewing room soon.

I have never used silk thread. I thought it would be slippery to work with.
