I have completed two more areas of my fall pillow cover. I'm still working on camouflaging the long seam and as you can see in the photo I've added another vine to the left (button flowers; silk ribbon leaves and back stitch). I also added a cute little cross stitch scarecrow.
I've had a couple of people ask me about the origins of the 'thing' I have in my header, so I thought I'd show you the previous posts I did about it. IT is a needle roll that I made in 2014 and I must admit that it's one of my more favourite things that I've done over the years. You can see more about it HERE and HERE.
There are a couple of things I've found of interest in my travels about the 'net, so thought I'd share them with you. First of all, there's a great post on Judy Cooper's blog pointing us to all sorts of great crazy quilting sites. You can go HERE to see that (and pour a cuppa before you go because you are going to spend some time there!!). And thank you Judy for including my blog of mumblings in that great list of resources!!
CrazyQStitcher has an incredibly smart son who created something I am coveting for myself (and will try convincing my DH to make for me too!). My studio space is carpeted and dropping a needle or pin in here is like looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack. One of these creations found HERE is just what I need.
There's a wonderful freebie over at Threadbare Creations - a Block of the Week Sampler quilt pattern. There are 46 different patterns available - all are free. Go HERE to see what that is about.
EDITED TO ADD: Linking up with Super Mom No Cape's stitchy party HERE.
Hope you have some fun with those links, and now here's your quote for the day (from Dale Carnegie).... "Let us not get so busy or live so fast that we can't listen to the music of the meadow or the symphony that glorifies the forest. Some things in the world are far more important than wealth; one of them is the ability to enjoy simple things"
