I have finished all of the body quilting in my son’s elephant quilt. I have used scroll hearts, bamboo, lazy daisy half motifs, and stippling. Tomorrow I will work on the border design if I haven’t run out of thread. Still not sure if I want to do leaves and vines or if I want to do fancy scroll vines. I’m so close to being done; I can’t wait!
I ordered a Singer Heavy Duty 44S as a Christmas present for my mom. She wanted a powerful machine with very simple features, and I think this fits the bill. On an easy note, it has a top drop bobbin instead of a front load, so I think she’ll like that. I hope this will get her back into quilting. I have fond memories of her making quilts.
My finished Toothless! I made him myself using KatyA’s deviantart pattern with a few minor adjustments. #sewing #katya #toothless #httyd
I have finally finished my son’s sailor suit that he will be wearing to Christmas dinner with family in Canada, and since the sewing machine was out, I fixed the pair of jeans I was (and still am) wearing. Now I have moved onto cutting fabric for the Elephant Walk quilt. All of the colored fabric is cut, but I still need to portion the white part of the quilt and the applique elephants.
The other colors (pink and red) are now available for purchase in the storenvy :) Only 2 pinks, 2 reds, and 3 navy.
There will be more cat collars that I’m trying to get around to working on but they will look a little different. Same shape and style, but new and very familiar look that many will recognize.
This crocheted cloche is a Christmas present for a friend of mine from work. She is so cute, so I thought this style of hat would suit her perfectly. The white yarn is 100% acrylic, and the blue yarn is 100% organic cotton. I know: "Why would you mix those two fibers?". The answer: it was what I had on hand. I was making different hat and had spent a lot of time on it before deciding it was a lost cause and starting anew. I made this entire thing on Friday at work while performing my job while we were short staffed. I’m just that awesome.
I have never made anything for my father-in-law (I guess because I have such a hard time thinking of things to make for men), but this year I have changed that. For his Christmas present, I have embroidered three golf towels. The crest in the middle came from myembroideries.com, and the other two designs came with the embroidery designs disc that came with my Singer SEQS-6700.
