Banner Progress :)

Well the star burst center of the Singer Banner got all finished by Wednesday :)
And I was on to the chain outermost border...

I had used Aurifil 28/2 in black for the star burst but I wanted more for the chain border... so I used DMC Perle 12 Cotton and big stitch style hand quilting...
Here is the beginning... just one thread in right now...
But check out when all four threads are in place...
Doesn't it look cool!

I chose to use wool batting for this project that I ironed carefully to make flat during the bagging adventure... it is really looking nice n puffy now though :)

Here is a close up of the chain detail...

So I am about 1/3 way around this and then I will go back with a gray thread and quilt the little areas above and below the medallion as well :)  I just wanted the edges to lay nice and flat so starting with them.

Also I got a wonderful Thank You card from a great bloggy friend Deb!
Isn't this a lovely card!!!

Her personal message was from her and her daughter who I gifted some quilty things to add to her young stash ;)  How sweet was that!  Made my day for sure :)

Do you send or receive thank you notes for just being yourself?  I love it when that happens... let's me know I must be doing SOMETHING right! lol  I rarely feel that way so this thank you not really helped me be thankful as well!



What are you thankful for?  I am currently very thankful the heater near my feet is working well... instead of hot flashes I am getting cold flashes during this time in my life! lol

I am also VERY thankful my bestie got me into quilting :)

I will be changing gears on Kaydence's quilt... more to come on that on Sunday's post ;)

I am linking this post to Kelly's Needle and Thread Thursday HERE
and
I will be whooping my thankfulness with Sarah for her Friday Whoop Linky HERE

Until next time...

  1. Hi…I think it is destiny that I accidently stumbled and fell into your website. You are my savior. It is uncanny that yesterday was the day I was fired or rather pleasantly put, `let go’ from my job, and today you are here with your writing tips on how to make money from home. Now…I give a damn to my day job. My profile already reads `Freelancer’, proudly and happily. I already know that there are some excellent money-making marketplaces like Graphic Design, Professional Logo Design. It is time for change. Can you give me more website names? I’m waiting…
