I finally finished the first two stitcheries from Jenny's Give Thanks BOM - oh they are so darling!
The fabrics I used are some that sweet Cyndi had sent me, I thought they were just perfect - cheerful and the right color of blue. Thank you Cyndi!!
I just love this bom! I did a boo-boo though, I used a yellower white for the base, and a bright white for the little hanging stitcheries. I think it'll be ok though. Also, instead of binding the tiny quilts, I bordered them in the binding fabric then pillowcased them.
Also, I wanted to show you Carmen's sweet wallhanging. She used my Sheltering Tree, and instead of the bunnies used a design by Sindy of Fat Cat designs for the little raggedies.
I love it Carmen!
And now for the changes part of this post.
I spend a LOT of time on the computer. So much time, that no sewing gets done. Somehow, blogging has taken top priority in my life, and that's not good. So, seeing how undisciplined I am, and needing to fix that, I'm now on a blogging schedule.
I'm only going to read and comment on blogs on the weekends. During the week, I'm going to concentrate on sewing. I'll still do the Christmas posts on the day I need to [first and last of the month], but the weekend will be my time for relaxing and blogging.
We do everything slightly backwards in my family - everything gets done during the week, because we're all home all the time, and weekends we do our own thing - read, relax, computer. So this should work for me. I'm telling you all this so you'll understand if you don't hear from me during the week. I'll still be doing emails every day, that's how I wake up - coffee and email! But I won't be commenting on blogs during the week, unless I have some downtime late in the evening.
I'm hoping this helps me become more creative again, I have so many ideas for quilts and stitcheries. Plus several things to finish up! And I'm looking forward to really enjoying blogging again. Have a great week, I'll see you soon!
