Friday Finishes!


This week I had more rest time, which meant more stitching time. I was able to finish two pieces this week and started a third. After this I need to start thinking about Christmas, I have gift ideas with my glass and quilts I want to make and finish, so hopefully I can get more done this year. I tend to make more gifts and I think it is time to get back to quilting and make some for my house and for the kids, I love the idea of having seasonal quilts around the house.

This is a design by Kathy Schmitz for the One Stitch Club. I made myself a pillow but not sure if I like the bright colors, or if I should antique it. It does look out of place since most of my halloween decorations are darker. The colored pencil orange, was a bit brighter than I like. I will have to see if I can find some darker shades and also have more for blending.

I also made another, this one for the kids. They like bright, so perfect for them. The stars and coat strips are done with glitter threads. I had old halloween fabric that was gifted to me, so it was perfect for this piece.

I did get to spend some days at the beach and as always, hunting for beach treasures. Sometimes I find odd shaped items and take them home, not sure what I will do with them. I do plan on making ornaments for my family so they have a piece of RI to hang on their tree. 

The last few days seemed to be calmer, so not as many larger pieces were thrown up, but I did find a few nice ones. A long weekend ahead, so hoping to get out and try some biking and scenic drives. Some places are starting to turn, so hopefully we can find a few places to enjoy the foliage. I hope. you all have a good weekend.

You did indeed find some very nice pieces of glass and other materials. I love that twisty rock, it almost looks like some kind of iron ore. As always, I love your stitcheries and the coloring is so pretty!

I have an affinity for crystals...and stones of most any kind, so I am sure I would spend way too much time treasure hunting if I had a beach nearby. At any given time there's are several stones and/or crystals in whatever pockets I have on LOL. I am sure the boys love their mini quilt. So perfectly fall-ish. Happy weekend! ~Robin~

Love the pillow as always. I hunted for some beach glass while on Star Island I have it in a big scallop shell.
happy fall
