Happy Stitching!

Hexies a go go!

Waiting for my son at the dentist's office is actually a productive time-I've brought my prepared kit and it took only 10 minutes to make two complete hexies!  Fun and rewarding, too!  Really, it's doubly rewarding because I'm using scraps, so even better!   I've got to find 60 degree plastic diamond templates next, but where is the question....any advice for me?

Ready to EPP!

I was at Barnes & Noble Bookstore browsing through the meager selection of quilting books and lo and behold! a jewel appeared...

a new book by Jessica Alexandrakis of Life Under Quilts entitled "Quilting On the Go"...

After a couple of pleasant trips to two quilt shops and my sewing room, here we have an "EPP to-go" kit:

There are great projects, small in stature, to get one started...
sewing kit
pin cushion
and the like.

Then there's the really fetching "travel quilt" idea, which I fell in love with....
here's Jessica Alexandrakis' version:

Isn't this marvelous?
And...upon closer inspection, you will see that she allowed her nieces, nephews, family members, friends, etc. to choose the colors for a star that she created in their presence on a certain day, which is marked in Sharpie extra fine on the white centers of each star, making this a lovely memory quilt.

What a marvelous idea!
What's your opinion?
Do-able...or not?

All the Best,

What's on the machine tonight!

ITonight I'm enjoying machine embroidery and am half way through a double-sided 26" table topper from Anita Goodesign.  I chose one side as a Christmas/winter theme and the other Valentine's Day.  It's fun to stitch out!  

What's on your machine?  

How do you like my new friend?  I met him in October at the Hostfest in Minot, North Dakota (a Norweigan Festival).  Isn't he handsome?  ;-)
