I did some stitching....more fabric....Blogger Quilt Festival

Hi everyone, I had to work today. It was a long day and I'm still fighting that cold that I've had since Tuesday. I hope it goes away soon. I did finish the stitching that I showed you a sneak peak of the other day. I'm using the Charming Bed Pocket pattern that Cori Blunt made for the Stitcher's Angel Swap. I just love this little stitchery. She is such a great designer. I love her new blog. You should go check it out. So now that I'm done the stitching, I'll be able to put it all together. I used coloring pensils to color the design on my fabric. I then painted some textile fabric medium over it to make it washable. Heat set it. Then embroidered around it. This is my first time trying this out. I really enjoyed doing it and it has turned out really nice.

I also got some more fabric in the mail yesterday. It's the "Apple" fabric by Timeless Treasures. I really love this fall fabric. So nice. I can't wait to make a quilt with it. I plan to use it to make a lap quilt. I purchased this fabric from the fabric shoppe.

On another note, Amy from Park City Girl is having her second Blogger Quilt Festival soon. I participated in the first one and had a great time. So, I'm spreading the word.



I hope you all have a good night. I have four more days to work. Then I'm off. Can't wait. I didn't get my Winter White Schnibbles pattern in the mail yet. I'm really disappointed because I was really looking forward to getting it done for this month end. Maybe it will come on Monday and I can get at least the top done for the Sept Year of Schnibbles project. Oh well....what can I do....I couldn't get it locally.

Happy Stitching!!

I love, love love the apple fabric. I have a made up jelly roll in those colours. These would be so cute as a border or backing. Your stitchery is incredible. I can only dream as being as talented as you!
