Framed!

I just picked these up from the framer. I was so happy to get them back before Halloween.
 The Kitty is for my daughter.
 Ghost is for a friend who did some weeding for me.
Too cute!

WIP Catherine's Heart

I thought you would like to see my progress on this piece:
I should be working on a crazy quilt square, but this is what calls to me now.

Fabric Fun

 I needed to show you all the fun fabrics I dyed at the library last week.  The above photo is a piece tablecloth I cut up and dyed. Below is a photo of all the different colors did of the same cloth. My excuse is that I am going to show it to the quilt guild and eventually make it into a crazy quilt.
 The following 3 photos are of linen I over-dyed.


 They were originally for my local guild but came out too blotchy. I will find use for them eventually. The yellow with black would be fabulous for Halloween/fall motifs!  And the bottom green/blue one is lovely.
The last two pieces are silk from the same botched project for my guild. I hope to cut the pieces up and use them in a quilt. Although, it is silk dupioni  so I should be able to stitch on them too.

I really want to add more to the silk and tablecloth fabrics. Paint and stencils come to mind. Not today though. I need to go back to my crazy quilt research.....

A Little Procrastination

I should be working on my presentation for the local guild. I should also weed my garden, clean the basement and exercise.
I did exercise this morning. Does that make it better?
I love this project. I find stitching it relaxing. My tension is off, and my eyelets are not even. Ask me if I care.....I LOVE THIS PIECE!
I have made it around the inside of all the squares and am doing the second round where it is needed.

I hope to show you photos tomorrow of all my new dyed fabric. Well, maybe Monday as it takes me forever to rinse them. And I am busy procrastinating...

September Small

Heather has posted another Small SAL post. Here is my small for the month:
This is how it looked when I started:
 And here it is stitched:
Yes! I finished another block for the 2020 challenge. I still need to count stitches and stuff, but it is done. The second photo is the true color of the piece.

A Bit of My Heart

I am working on this instead of my other projects.
It is a fun stitch. I like to work on it when I have half a chance.
