A little of this...

and a little of that lately!

I was working diligently on the Carpenter star top for our bed and then as usual things came up here and there.  All is good though and Ayden and I are getting used to being without daddy again for a few months though.  Then he will be home with us for good!!

I have had the 4 "diamonds" done around the center star for a week or so now and then things came to a halt.

About a half an hour to trace out the flower with a blue washable marking pen and then stitch it with a running stitch.  So 2 of these a night squeezed in works fine for me.  Otherwise the enjoyment gets drowned out after two!  Trust me;)

In the last few days I squeaked out another two "diamonds" with flowers....6 more to go and I can call it good.

Some stitching around the star in the center.  I have hand quilted almost the entire top now.  6 more flowers and then the grey 4 corners and the grey border.  An ongoing project that has been fun and I get to play around with other projects too!!

No I didn't venture into winter wonderland yet,but I loved the pleating and ruching going on here so I based a flour sack towel off of it a bit:)

 Remember that bird pattern I was embroidering???

All fancied up!

The pleated fabric is from an Art Gallery feather print and some dots from Hancocks Fabrics.

 Patchwork with a blanket stitch on the other side of this cotton towel.  The prints are from Connecting Threads Bird on a Wire.

Who is this for??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Not telling;)  You will have to wait and see!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Talk at ya'll later!
