Welcome to Sewing Sunday where I show what has been sewn or is in the process of being sewn outside of the two Sewing groups that I belong to.
In no particular order of importance we begin with Sophia Loren cross-stitch which is a gift to my husband, who watches over my progress eagerly. (He is oggling really!)
From September 2022 to November 22
Secondly, I have rejuvenating the Christmas Quilt that I started last year. In fact I didn’t like the small blocks that I had made so ripped them apart and rejigged how they looked, then sewed together one of the larger blocks and this is what I have so far … (Doesn’t it look christmassy!!)
I have also changed my mind on the design (typically me) but feel happier with how things look now.
Thirdly, and totally different to anything sewn so far, I am going to delve headfirst into Redwork. Helping me in this is the designs I found on Dandelion Designs by Mandy Shaw.
These are some of the last things purchased, before my self imposed curfew on buying new stash, however, I have just purchased the calico and thread and interfacing required to complete these designs. Here is a closeup of the Basket Quilt …
Isn’t it delicious. I’m not decided on the red fabric required yet. I have started as Mandy did with the months of June; (It was a SAL with her Secret society membership); and a picnic basket. The July block is Pick Your Own Strawberry basket. Both these have the interfacing ironed on. It looks like fun so wish me luck.
Also by Mandy Shaw are two delightful cushions (there are more designs). I have ironed the fox onto the calico and attached some wadding as I would like mine to have a quilted effect.
I am going to be busy!!!
Other projects still working on are my Jane Austen Quilt and Memoirs Quilt and the Honey Bee Quilt.
Quilts awaiting quilting now number four so I will have to get my wiggle on.
Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you have been sewing.
Goodbye for now
