Thank you so much for stopping by. I’m so happy to participate in this weeks hop.
When planning for the hop I had several different ideas. First the watercolor dream I have of one day starting my painting again. But, this is a sewing group and I didn’t think anyone would have been interested in that.
Then there was the Little Red Riding Hood cross stitch project I could do. Problem is I’m not a fast stitcher. I wouldn’t have been anywhere close to being finished. That brings to mind another dream. Starting projects I can finish. Seriously, who am I kidding? Being a finisher is a Fairy Tale.
So I decided I would use my embroidery machine to start a project that would give me finished blocks to show and I could just decide how to finish it later.
I settled on the Frog Prince and the Fairy Tale designs from OESD. They stitched out so nice. I’m loving them all.
I changed a few of the colors so that the Frog Prince would work with the Castle and others. It saved on threads too. These designs can take quite a few threads and the cost does add up.
I was unable to stitch up the Princess, ran out of stabilizer. So I have that to finish later. lol
Looking back, from the time I started quilting, I can’t really say I’ve made something really crazy. Unless you count the time I made a fish head costume for my son. I wish I had pictures of that, lol. But, that was not a ‘quilting’ thing anyway.
When Carol first announced this hop I knew right away what pattern I wanted to make and with what fabric. Feathers by The Pattern Basket and Sequoia fabric line by Edyta of Laundry Basket Quilts. I had both in my stash. I bought the pattern last year with the idea when I was feeling better I would try to piece it.
