Stitching Frenzy!

I decided to make this a week to stitch myself silly! I am trying to finish several things as well as make some good progress on several others. So far I have finished my batik quilt top and it will soon be delivered to the machine quilter.

I have finished my red bobbin lace bookmark.  I ran out of thread in one of my workers or I would have made it longer. You can add thread when you run out, but I don’t know how to do that yet. I started a new piece at my last class that has stitches I haven’t tried yet. I just bought a pillow and moved that piece to the pillow. I ended up with an extra pin so clearly did something wrong during the move. I’ll need to take a closer look at it later.


I have completed the quilting on the lamb’s body. The rest of the quilting in the main body of the quilt is straight lines, but I still need to decide what to do in the borders.


I have also finished a couple of Madeline projects. I made a yo-yo mouse for her that will go with the yo-yo rabbit I made for her birthday. Plus, I finished a cute pair of reversible pants. I have the fabric to make another pair but want her to try these on first.


Next on my agenda for the week is finishing up several EGA projects from the past year or so.


  1. yay! Sounds like a productive stitching week!

  2. Wow, Congrats on all the finIshes last wk! I'm so impressed by the variety of your projects!
