Some new work and a studio"helper"

This week I pulled out some leftover scraps from making our great grandsons quilt last year. The scraps were pretty small and I did add a few other fabrics to the mix, but with the thought of an overgrown landscape I came up with this.

Now how do I quilt it? It's 24 inches square so probably doesn't need much.

I still had a few small pieces left and remembered some leftover prints from the weekly leaf series so ended up making 3 smaller pieces.

These pieces will get some hand stitching on the leaves and will most likely be mounted onto canvas when finished.

Then there were a few blueprint scraps and this happened.
This will also get some hand stitching.

I belong to the local art guild and we have several new places to display artwork in town so these will be perfect for that. Here's the whole group on my design wall.

Missy, the new kitten that adopted us has decided to come my studio helper, which is okay when
 she is like this.

But not when she's doing this.

Weekly Stitching
Signs of Life: The five universal shapes
week #36
I did lots of french knots this week and but it really doesn't look like much.

2017 Daily Stitching #2 days#87-93

A few polkadots, triangles and background stitching.

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


  1. The leaves and landscape are gorgeous!

  2. Oh I LOVE your new piece...and the smaller ones to compliment it....and as always love to see your wonderful hand stitching!

  3. Seems we were both clinging to the final greens of summer. You have such a wonderful way with these pieces of drawing the eye to the focal point.

    It's tough for studio kitties to resist the allure of supervising the sewing.

  4. The leaf blocks are fantastic. I also have an adopted kitty who likes to help.

  5. All your green pieces are wonderful and they look so good together as a grouping.
    Cute kitty!
