Lots of stitching going on

I'm finally back to getting some work done. After traveling most of March I expected a bit of a creative slump, I didn't expect it to last two months! I did make a couple of donation quilts and my SAQA donation quilt and kept up with my daily and weekly projects, but other than that I felt rather lost. Finally this week I'm feeling back in my groove.

First I did a small (12"sq.) piece that has been languishing in a drawer for many years, just the fabric and some threads in a project bag. Now it may end up as next years SAQA donation.

Next I pieced two tops using blueprinted fabrics, I showed the start last week.
I've started the quilting on the left hand one.

While trying to clear some of the messiness in Studio B(so I can make another mess), I came across two pieces of recycled linens that I had tea and rust dyed.

I've started the stitching on one and have the threads I need for both of them in stock.

Now that I have several projects going I feel more like myself.

More background and a star

I only have about 2 square inches on the bottom left to do. Then I have to decide how to finish the edges and what to stitch next. The stitched part started out at 10 "square, with the heavy concentration of stitching it's now about 9 1/2" square.

I'll be linking up to "Off the Wall Friday" and "Slow Sunday Stitching".


  1. Love the stitching on the first piece. Is it free motion or walking foot?

  2. Looks like your mojo is back to me!

  3. You have so much pretty stitching going on.
