This is the latest project I have been working on,
It is a pattern by Crab-apple Hills. It took me so long
I don't know if I am just really slow or if there was just
a lot of work in it.
It is a old post card. I loved it because the script reminded
me of my grand mothers handwriting. I like Crab-Apple Hill's
designs because she has so much hand work in her patterns.
I have always loved embroidery and I do red work and blue
work, but Meg offers so many other designs.
I wanted to do her Halloween quilt she is going to be offering
soon and I thought I needed to get my embroidery skills back
up to par.
This is the whole complete postcard. Her Halloween
quilt is so beautiful that it took my breath away when saw it
on her blog. You can see it here. It is way beyond my skill
level but I would like to try it anyway.
I don't know what my next project will be yet. I found a lovely
quilt shop today. The lady said she offers beginning quilting courses
and I think I might sign up just because I need some refresher courses.
I did ask her about rug hooking and she acted like I was a nutter.
California just isn't rug hooking country.
I had Emilie with me and the lady's son was working who was very cute and
Emilie said, maybe she would have to take up quilting soon. He was very
cute and very sweet. He acted like when Emilie walked in that we made his
day. It was cute.
Thank you for all of the very sweet birthday wishes. She said it has been the best
birthday ever so far.
I do love March! I need to find my kites.
