Now What?

A very sweet friend recently sent me a pattern, all the way from Tasmania. She showed a picture of this quilt made up on her blog, and I fell in love with it. Thank you Bell, I can't wait to make it!

What I love about this pattern is that the daisies cover any points that don't match. *G* They don't call me Allie-OOPS for nothin'.



And I won a give-away over at Jan's blog:

The cutest towels with stitcheries, cookies for Santa. My mom is going to love these - she once spent $300 at a home party for Christmas decorations. The woman goes all out. She usually has her tree up until June.



And I finally finished Jenny's In My Garden stitcheries. Oh my gosh do I love these.

Hold onto your monitors, I took pics of them all.

I guess I should've brushed the lint off first. Please disregard the awful job I did on the binding....I love pieced binding, but it's a bit tricksy. I dug into my vintage button stash and had so much fun. I want to hang these on a clothesline with vintage clothes pegs. They are really going to brighten up my sewing room!



So, the title of my post - now what? I have so many projects ready to start, that I don't know which one to pick up! The Gum Tree designers have been so busy, I want to make each project there, of course the towels and the quilt I showed at the beginning of this post, the stitcheries of Jenny's that I haven't started yet, all the bom's I've been saving, and dh's quilt....sigh. AND - my up-coming give-away project! This is post 94, there will be a give-away at number 100. I guess I'd better start with that! This will be only for my regulars followers - you won't be blogging about it. I'm very excited to finally have my own give-away! I've been so blessed by all of you in blog-land, and at last I can give back a little.



I have so much to do, what am I doing sitting here? See you soon!

I love that pattern with the daisies in the middle of the 4-patches - cute, cute! I don't know how you tackle all that stitching to make those towels into pieces of artwork - your Mom will be thrilled, I'm sure. Those stitcheries with the vintage buttons are absolutely adorable. I love all the bright colors and the vintage ric-rac. The colors of those vintage buttons match so well. Where do you find the time to do all this stuff anyway?

Allie........wow......nice pattern and as for the stitcheries how cute are they....you have been and will be one busy girl.

Mary-Kay said...

The garden stitcheries are great! I love the vintage look of them. And if you didn't say anything about the lint I wouldn't have gone back to look for it. And that quilt looks to be really cute. Are you going to do it in reproductions or what? I can't wait to see it done. That shpould be your "now what".

Shari said...

Your stitcheries are fantastic. I just want to reach out and touch and ooh and aah. I've been really trying to resist buying any more patterns, but this is so irresistable. May just have to go and see Jenny... lol.

Love the picnic quilt. A little sprinkling of applique is good for us!

You crack me up Allie! Your stitcheries all turned out so good and your fabric choices are just amazing! You are one talented lady for sure!
And like you, I'm into random too. I don't do a lot of matchy matchy!

Loralynn said...

What a lot of wonderful goodies! I love the way you made Jenny's garden stitcheries! Nice job on the binding too!

I love your new quilt pattern. You should start it next. Love Jenny's stitcheries too. You really do beautiful work.

Dolores said...

Allie, I love what you did with Jenny's patterns. They are wonderfully colourful - what lint? Congrats on the winnings too.

jan said...

Gosh those stitcheries are cute! The vintage buttons really add to the design, too. Your applique is so nice! I have not tried applique, yet. I am working up to it, though. (if thinking about it alot can be considered 'working up'!)

Sue said...

I had so much fun reading your post! Thank you for sharing so many pretty things. *G*

I LOVE your stitcheries. Your handwork is beautiful! Those towels...can't wait to see them stitched up. And the quilt pattern: love, love, love.

Jenny of Elefantz said...

trixi said...

I love your stitcheries especially the my garden and rainbow ones. Lovely work.

Carrie P. said...

That quilt pattern is very pretty. I love the daisies on it too.
I think you need to get those fantastic towels done for your mom. Christmas will be here before you know it.
Your little blocks are so cute. I just love all the vintage buttons on them. And of course the rick rack. It looks like you used the little bit of blue I sent or was that your own? Either way I just love them all and what a great idea to hang them. I was wondering what you were going to do with them.

Kim said...

I love the stitcheries, especially the rainbow. :) Gods Promise to Noah

Shasta said...

These are all beautiful. They will really liven up your house. The pattern is cute as well.

Rebekah said...

your garden stitcheries are absolutely darling! I love the colors and fabrics that you used.

And, that quilt pattern is so cute! Can't wait to see what you do with it

Lauranie said...

They are all PERFECT!! I see no lint??!?!! :) I asked my 7 yo which she liked best...here is the response:
"Can I pick two? I mean 3??!!"
So her top 3 are the Rainbow, butterfly, and pretty flowers one!!

And I think I am revising my previous favorite to be the Sunshine one....that's the song my children love for me to sing them!! "You are my sunshine...."

Beatrix from Kindershop said...

Your stitcheries are gorgeous!!! You used the most perfect colors and such a great job stitching everything. Simply, perfect.

Sew Useful Designs said...

I'm sure you will do a magnificent job of your points and they will be delicately hidden under the flowers so only you know how gosh darn perfick they are! lol... And Wowsers! You have done an absolutely mouth-watering job on Jenny's In my Garden designs! Absolutely gorgeous! Your sewing room is gonna be one happy place to be - as I'm sure it is already!
Thanks for sharing, sweetie!
Hugs!! Vikki xoxo

Your little works of stitched art are all so wonderful, I just adore them! The daisy pattern is a great idea, (would look great done up in the same bright, vintage feeling fabrics that you just used!) And congrats on winning the giveaway!
