Friday Finish!


This week I worked on a new projects and finished a couple of Christmas stitcheries. I had made a bunch up, so I decided it is a good time to finish them. I will wait to make them into something, probably later in the summer, so I can concentrate on finishing more seasonal projects and maybe make some new ones.

I am working on a new inspirational pillow in memory of my daughter. I found the idea on a blog, so I will be sharing that, next week.

This design is by Kathy Schmitz, from her One Stitch at a Time Club. I wasn't sure what to make it into and then I got the idea to add a saying. A saying makes it into a nice pillow that I can give as a gift, for now I will enjoy looking at it on my shelf;)

I used art markers to color in the quilt, just a little touch of color.

It looks like spring is finally here and I hope it stays. I am ready to get out for long walks and hikes, though my body is still not recovering, as well as I would want, so I may have to take it easy.

Are what you call art markers permanent? What I mean, is it washable?

Debbie, this is so beautiful!! Such a difference that bit of colour makes - you'll have us all scrambling for our markers; I usually use coloured pencil and the colour is quite subdued but I shall be experimenting with your method or pressing harder with the coloured pencils, lol. You are so creative!

Take it easy, but get out and do what you can in the warmer days ahead.

Great choice to add colour and the saying to the pillow Debbie.

Hope you have a good weekend. We've had a windstorm overnight and some rain now, but not as bad as I thought it might be.

That is a sweet little pillow, and the color adds so much. Our spring seems to be taking two steps back for every step forward. Finally the cherry trees are in bloom but the weekend was cold and rainy so not much viewing going on. No rain today but very cloudy.
