As busy as this summer has been I have still found time to stitch, stitch, stitch!
I will have 3 new charts coming out within the next month, which is exciting!
Here is a snippet of my new chart Bittersweet:
I like to reward myself after a long day of cross stitch with some hand work of another kind. I enjoy hand applique, with cottons or wool, or
sometimes both together!
I recently binge watched Anna Bates, also known as Woolie Mammoth on Youtube. She has a channel called Quilt Roadies. She and her husband are retired and doing the RV thing, and they travel around, mostly in the Pacific Northwest and she films the insides of all of these different quilt shops! Its wonderful! I have always been a big fan of the Quilt Sampler magazine, where they feature all different shops across the nation. So this is like the video version of that!
Here is an example of one of Anna's wonderful episodes:
On one of the Quilt Roadie episodes Anna interviewed Stacy West, of Buttermilk Basin. This got me started looking at all of her designs. I bought this little banner, which is part of a series. I really enjoyed stitching it, and I used all wool out of my stash.
Its fun to work on something that you can finish in one or two nights.
So this has rekindled my love for wool applique. I have been looking at several Block of the Month kits. I really love this one, being partial to chickens:
The whole quilt is really cute. I would do the wool version.
Well, I hope you enjoy the last hazy days of summer.
Before you know it, it will be Pumpkin Spice season!
