Winter Wonderland

I had been working on the quilt "Winter Wonderland"..... I put all the embroidery blocks together and binding around it... Then I had to stitch the "Fly Stitch" around the blocks.... This part is done and now I have been working on the blocks that goes around this.... The next time you see this, I will have it completed....If you click on the picture you can see it better... I took the picture outside, and some of the sunlight came through.... :)

Emfroidery Stitch Tool

As you all know I have been doing more embroidery.... There were some stitches I was not familiar with.... So, I purchase this Stitch Tool Booklet.... There is 180 different stitches and combinations... Also Illustration for left and right handed stitching..... The book also stands as in the picture.... I purchase it on Amazon.... It was a great help for me to do the Fly Stitch that is required around the blocks on "Winter Wonderland " as you see in the picture above this.... :)

Country Cousins Block #1

This is the first block that I have ever did in needle turn applique.... I took a needle turn class and this is the results of my first project... This block is called "Four Feeding Birds"... The pattern is from the Baltimore's "Country Cousins" by Susan McKelvey... I enlarged the pattern to 18" so, when I am finish with all the blocks, it fit my bed... I did make one of these blocks and I did not like the colors that I choose so, I started over.... I will show you each block when I get them done... Hugs :)
