Seems like I’m just puttering these days. Getting a little done here and there which I guess eventually will add up to something…..
I love Ace Points designs for embroidery. I did these Delft Eagles to send on to the ladies of QFC who are attending Sew Fest this year:
I used the ‘tube’ method and I don’t know why…. I’ve worked with it before and, really, I don’t much care for it. Maybe it’s the “I’m going to conquer it” attitude I sometimes get. Anyway, the blocks end up measuring 13½” unfinished, so I will have to frame out the Eagle blocks. I would like to keep to a more blue color scheme in honor of the Delft…. I’m thinking a navy blue that is more on the blue side than the black side. Does that make sense to you? Some ‘navy’ blues are more blue and some are more black – at least in my brain…. or maybe what I think is blue Navy is considered indigo???? whatever – I have an idea in my brain, now to find the fabric!
I went back to the ‘Estate’ sale and scored about 15 yards more in fabric, a pattern, and a ruler I’ve never seen anywhere before:It has slots at different partial inch intervals. I don’t know what this is used for, but I think it’ll come in handy….I picked up a ziplock bag with 6 quilt magazines from the late 1990’s. One was a Christmas issue still in it’s plastic covering. I don’t think any of these magazines had ever been opened. I have to say here that I didn’t become a ‘quilter’ until 2001 – you’d have to read “about me” to get the whole story – so I really have enjoyed going through these magazines and have actually marked a couple quilts I’d like to try my hand at. I’m thinking I need to go back and go through more magazines
Scored a few other items that I knew I just had to have…. DH shakes his head but indulges my whims – guess I’ll keep him.
Happy Friday to All,
