Cross-stitch, quilting, craft….

Friday Night Sew-In

The Missus and I both joined in the Sew-In last night.  We both  worked on a block for A Gardener’s Journal.  I’m making the quilt and she has picked out a few designs she would like to stitch.  I stitched most of the blue on the dress last night.

She has asked me to make this one into a needlecase for her when it is done.  The Missus stitched all of this last night.  It is the second stitchery she has worked on.  She has had a few goes at cross stitch, but found that she prefers this kind of stitching.  She has a stitchery stashed away in the “evacuation bag”.  I think may have a convert!

All the bricks for The Missus’ lap quilt are cut out.  I counted 38 different patterns and 148 dark bricks.  I miscounted the light ones, so need to recount.

This is one side of a tea cozy I finished this morning.  It was made from a couple of orphan blocks and some bamboo batting.   The black adds oomph, as they were a bit wishy washy before.   

I brewed a cup of tea tonight and used the cozy.  It works really well.  The tea even seemed to taste nicer! lol

I cross stitched Four Fat Friends last year simply because it was so cute.  It was sometime later that I decided to make it into a needlecase.

    You two do beautiful work! I had to work during the sew in last night but am hoping to sew today. I love the needlecase…I need to find a pattern and whip one of those up..I have a plain kind of one that I got free from a quilt store, but that is all! You two always inspire me to needlework and cross stitich. Have you seen the new BOM with embroidery–under the sea. It is SO cute I want to try it, though not sure I want to at the same time!

  4. Love what you are both working on…..
