I know I've been a little sporadic with my blogging lately. Mostly it has to do with the lack of good photography. I have a big project to share but I've been unable to get any decent pictures of it, despite two major "shoots." I got a great idea from a friend, though, and when the sunlight gets right, I'll try it.
I'm also at a bit of a loss without my Dresden project to work on. I'm not exactly sure what my next big project will be. Believe me, it isn't from a lack of patterns/books and fabrics! I think I spend all of my time just looking through everything finding great possibilities. I know from reading other blogs that I don't have near the patterns that others have, but still. I get them out and say "I love this! I want to make this!" And then I get to the next one, and feel the same way. I love all the patterns, that is why I bought them, but goodness, I don't think I'll ever get them all done. And this isn't figuring in all the book and magazine projects I have marked!
Meanwhile, I have small things underway. I have the blocks from my Schnibble done and am ready to put them together. I have a table runner started for a Christmas gift, and Nabby's Dowry is almost ready to complete. Monday I was gone all day out quilt shopping, and I have something to share tomorrow from that trip.
Today, though, I'm sharing this cutie.
I had never done much embroidery before, although my grandma was proficient and my great-grandma was a master. My grandma embroidered most of the quilts she made--the ones with the States and State birds, etc.
The yo-yos were fun, too. To get them, I traced the bottom of a spool of dual duty thread. They are tiny! The whole quilt is probably only 12" square. Here is a picture with a dime on it so you get an idea of scale.
That is all for now! I have to scurry to get ready for quilt bee this morning.
Have a great day!
