Slow Stitching ... So Much to Share!!!




I have had such a good & busy week y'all!!

A week ago I shared a rocking chair we got on Craigslist... it is oak and we only paid the man $25 for it!!!  It is in excellent condition and sits on my honey's side of our bedroom (my side has a table with our computer on it)... Well I finished a seat cushion and lumbar pillow for this rocking chair you can see in this montage of pics...

And you can read about it RIGHT HERE!  I even hand tied this cushion for extra stability when it needs a wash.. and I think it holds it all together well too :D

Then I took all those glue basted letters for the "Happy Fall Y'all" wall hanging...



Got them stitched down...
 
 and then added borders and called it a flimsy
 in THIS POST!  I love the design CHANGE of adding the acorn cornerstones too!!!

Now it is time to H A N D   Q U I L T this quilt top... which can also be called a flimsy at this stage.

 Now this is being done hoopless and frameless... it measures about 35" x 45" APPROX only...

After taking these photos I have also used some variegated thread in fall colors in the black inner border toward the center...  Looks nice too!

If you look at the last pic above you can see some templates... I have to come back to the turquoise blue background and add some stabilization stitching to it... but I can't decide on the thread color... so I am holding it off for last! lol

The center of this wall hanging to be... was featured on Bonnie Hunter's blog on 10/5/2017 am ...


I was beyond excited for sure to have her vote of confidence :D  This has been a really fun project to break away from all the other stuff I have been doing.

I do want to wish all my Canadian friends a Happy Thanksgiving... I wish Florida had trees that changed colors... esp this early in the fall season.. so enjoy it up there you all!!!


And a little something fallish for the rest of you all...
I sure do love the sunshine too!!!

And for now the quilt is calling me back to take a few more stitches... I will be selling the previous fall wall hanging... if you are interested just send me a message here before it goes on a more public platform ... it is all hand quilted too :)
It comes with a hanging sleeve on it that lays flat if not in use.. if you choose to use it as a lap quilt for someone special :)

Here is a shot of it before I started preparing it for sale hanging in the foyer...
Thanks for visiting me... and thanks for all of you that went back to check out my links to all I posted this week... it was mostly all done by hand and all done with LOVE! 

Linking all this hand stitched love to Kathy HERE for Slow Stitching Sunday on her blog... which is how I spent my Sunday :)  go see what everyone else linked up and are thankful for as Kathy is in Canada :D

So until my next posting...

  1. Your new quilt hanging is adorable, but you should keep the old one too. You may want to mix it up sometime! Both are so pretty!!
