These four postcards are for a crazy quilt postcard swap, they will be mailed out on Tuesday. Here is a close up of one of the bullion frogs. I haven't done them for a long time so I need a little more practice.
This crazy quilt wool project has been laying around for quite awhile because it just doesn't seem finished to me. After getting a second opinion (thanks Bonnie) I decided to stick it in a frame and look at it for awhile. It's not permanent, so I can always take it out and add more if I think I needs it.
This was a little out of character for me when I joined a swap for a dotee doll. The purple one is the one that I made and sent and the other one isn't from my parter, she never sent one, but the host was kind enough to angel me and the yellow one is the one she made for me. Thanks Jessica.
I needed to get away from my old projects and do something new so I made some fabric beads. These are so quick, easy and totally fun I can see myself getting carried away and making a kazillion of them but since I don't have a clue what I'm going to do with the few I made, let alone a kazillion, I used self control and just made nine for now.
I have been diligently working on a round robin project. I'm the first person to work on Debbie's passion for purple block. This first picture is her whole block and the second picture is the area that I worked on. I'm not quite sure if I'm done or if I will add a few more stitches. I need to remember to save room for the other five people that will be working on it. But it just seems like it needs something else.
I've been spending more time on the road lately than I have been at home. Since I'm not getting much done I decided to take something on the road since my husband was doing the driving. I did a little experimenting with crochet thread to see what I could make for my fabric postcards and crazy quilting. This is what I did, some I'm happy with and can use, and some, well, not so much.
This pattern series is called On The Flip Side and is by Joined at the Hip
It comes with two patterns, one is for wool appliqué and the other is for needle punch. They are put on a little wool frame that was made with little one inch squares of wool.
There are 12 different patterns so they can be changed out each month.
