Busy, Busy, Busy

Here is a bit of what I have been working on. I am trying to practice my free motion quilting as much as possible. I think I am getting the hang of it, well kind of. I am having fun anyway. I fused some fabric for a little collage and then added some stitching. I do not like the two black squares but I keep telling myself this is just for practice. I do really like how the stitching came together. I have also basted my Celtic knot which I started back in May, in fact I blogged about it in July. It is about time I finished a piece. My plan for the next couple of months is going to be finish some of the tops I have completed.

I have almost completed my quilted bra for the breast cancer fundraiser on Wednesday. I hope to post photos in the next couple of days. It is coming along quite nicely. In between I am also teaching our exchange student to sew. Today we went and purchased a Amy Butler pattern for a bag called the Birdie Sling. Tonight we got it all cut out. I think it will be a nice bag for her.

Well, that is enough for now. I hope all of you are enjoying your weekend.....


  1. You have been busy! I like the free-motion's so very pretty.

  2. I think you're doing a splendid job!

  3. Love the look of that stitching. The combo of the rectangles with the scrolls and vines is wonderful. Love that shade of green.
