Humming Right Along

Baby it's cold outside, but I'm busy as a bee in my little sewing room.  I'm done writing the tutorial for the first block of our Garden of Contentment quilt, yay, just proofing and tweaking!  C'mon, Monday~!  I'm thrilled so many of you are joining in, wear your prettiest hats and floweriest dresses, we're going to have a lovely time!

I'm also working on several things - my room is a mess, but it's a fun mess.  I've started Jenny's Live Simply design from her January issue of The Stitchery Club, using the blues from the same line of fabric I've used for the Garden of Contentment quilt [Aloha Girl by Fig Tree & Co. - older line].



I had so many strips left over from the Garden quilt, I wanted to use them up -



so I'm making a mini-quilt using my free Valentine's Hearts coaster design



Two blocks done.

I've also [drum roll!] cut all my blocks for my Postcards From Heaven quilt!



Postcards From Heaven was a free BOM from both Jenny and I back in 2016.  We each created six blocks, and mine are still available in my shop as a free download, under the title The Word in Stitches.  Jenny's are also still available in her shop under 20 Christian themed stitchery designs , also a free download.

I got the red fabric yesterday to frame them, it's washing now!  Can't wait to finally put these together.

And because that's not enough, I started the mystery BOM from Little Red Hen's facebook group!



Still have to stitch the embellishments.  My kitties will be black and white, in honor of my beloved Hermione who we lost last year. 



I do miss her so.

That's about it from Allie-land - the sun just came out, I think I'll go make some hay while it shines!  Hope you get to stitch today too!

Love,
Allie

Truly that's a lot of work well done!
A sewing room too well ordered all hours of the day ... It is not a sewing room, but a textile museum! :) Enjoy what you do, that's the important thing.

I've had the best time looking through your stitcheries and appliques. Postcards from Heaven is a neat project. I particularly love your kitty that you're working on.

Lovely projects Allie, sorry to hear about puss,not easy heh

I just bought the patterns for the quilt. I am quite excited about it. I am determined to keep up with it. I have decided it will eventually end up in our living room and my husband agrees. We are both going "shopping" in my fabric closet this evening to pick out the fabric and color scheme. Thank you for a lovely design Allie!

Wonderful post about wonderful things! That cat could almost make me wish I'm on FB. =) That's such a pretty line of fabric, I don't blame you for using all the leftover strips!

Not sure how I missed the last couple of posts. You have lots of fun, pretty happening in Allie-land!!! Very excited with your "Garden of Contentment". It's a very pretty little quilt.

Look at how busy you are! So much pretty, but my favorites are still the postcard blocks. I only completed one so far, but I still have them all printed out for 'one day'... ha!

So sorry to hear about Hermoine! Your cat is adorable. Hope you are well.
