It's Monday the Broncos the Super Bowl WooHoo and I have some finishes to share. For the first time in a long time I gave my sewing machine some attention. I did have some major issues with it though, I broke three, yes three needles. In all of the years 6, I have had this machine I have never broke a needle and then WHAM!!! I am taking her in next Monday to get serviced, I will admit that since I have had it don't ever remember taking her in to be serviced. So this is LONG overdue and I think once it's done it will be like a brand new machine.
Okay, back to my finishes. How many of you follow Vonna at Twisted Stitcher? I love her blog and she recently posted a youtube video tutorial on finishing a small pillow. I have finished many pillows in the past but she gave some tips that actually made my finished pillow look a lot better than in the past. She is very detailed which I like. I am much more a visual learner. I wish more people posted video tutorials.
Here is a partial view of what I finished. I can't show the entire finish as it is part of an exchange and even though my exchange partner does not read my blog you just never know.
Next finish was a fabric box. I found a tutorial on this blog Seaside Stitches This was my first time sewing a fabric box. Gave me some fits but it's done, not perfect but done. Again buttons used were my Mothers :)
Lastly is one of my many current WIPs I have going. This is Quaker Garden by BlackBird Design. I was able to get a lot stitched on Saturday. I had someone work for me and I was able to attend a GTG at our local library. I am so glad I was able to attend, I had a ball. It always gets my stitching mojo flowing being with other stitchers.
This is being stitched on 32ct over 1 on an unknown fabric. I think the finished size is going to somewhere around 6 5/8 by 2 7/8 Have I mentioned how much I LOVE stitching over one :)
Well friends that is all I have for today. Thank you for taking the time reading my blog and leaving your sweet comments.
