Shari's Stocking

I'm madly stitching away, trying to catch myself up! This is a picture of the work I did on a friends stocking. It is about 3 feet long so it had losts of opportunity to spread out! I enjoyed working on this and hope that Shari is happy with my work!

CQI Purse Contest

I'm wayyyyyy late blogging about this purse. Im still trying to get myself caught up I guess after the Making Memories quilts. Anywhoo, I made a purse for the CQI (Crazy Quilting International). I'm happy to at least have finished it as its been over two years in the making! LOL! This was also a lesson in UFO's and the "brilliant" ideas that we may have had at conception. If ya don't write it down..... wellllllllllllllllllllllll, ya probably et the idea! LOL! So, as I didn't remember the "where" I was going, I added a Josephine Wall silky and then embroidered and beaded a couple of trees, etc. If you click on this pic, it ought to take you to my Flickr album which will let you see the other side, etc. As I said.....i'm a winner cuz I finished the project! (Wink) I didn't win or place in the contest...which is just fine! I STILL finished a project! VBG! Enjoy!

Hi everyone!

I have finally finished my tin for the swap that we are holding at CQI. This is an altoid size tin. I first spray painted the edges, cq'd the sides, added the lining, beaded handle and "catch" and then made a little pin cushion for the inside along with a mini tin for needles. As a special gifty I made a bracelet I hope she will enjoy!
