I cannot believe that I have blogged for 365 days in a row, but I have. When I first decided to join Cricket's blog challenge, I thought I must be crazy and I didn't want to be crazy alone, so I invited Jennifer Houlden into the challenge as well. I think we have both kept each other on track.
52 Flower Blocks is a lot of blocks and a lot of work, but I enjoyed making each and every one of them. Each block first had to be drawn and then templates were drawn on the computer for both the layout and all individual pieces. Dotted lines were added for overlays and stitching guidelines. All pieces were also labelled accordingly. That alone was time consuming and the process of constructing the flower block hadn't even begun.
Today is the last Stitch Along Sunday for December and 2013. I have to say I had a lot of fun playing today, making a design to attach my tags to. I do have to admit, I didn't quite get it all finished as I want to add more. Check out what I did.
Well today is the last flower block for my BOW program, but it is not the last flower to be made. Be sure to check in next week for two more flowers that are not listed in the BOW program. For the last BOW program flower I have a tiger lily. I had this flower scheduled for the last by request from my daughter as today, 27th December is my granddaughter's 2nd birthday. I made this one with lots of love for her.
This is the last week for the Stitch Along Challenges in 2013. It has been a lot of fun creating and playing with different fibers. I have plans to continue them again next year and hope more of you will join in the fun.
My 52nd day of quilting designs. Woo Hoo I made it! Today's inspirational photo is of a wire frame design which is a decoration above a door however could also be used as a hanger for a small quilt.
I think this year for Christmas I have been the most spoilt ever. I have received so much and two I want to share with you because they are so delightful to look at. I've already spent hours just turning the pages of the two books my daughters gave me - one of my granddaughter and the other of my grandson. What wonderful memories to keep.
Ever wondered how to make the elements - earth, wind, fire and water - in textiles appear as if they leap off the surface? Linda Schmidt's class "Elements in Fabric" will show you how. In this class, you will gain a greater understanding of design principles using the many techniques and products available to us today.
It's a little hard predicting what I'll be doing next year. I had to rattle my brain about with thoughts. I had thought of going back to school, but was not sure how I would juggle that with all the changes happening at the Academy so for my tab I settled on something that I most definitely want to do and that is make another mystery workshop.
