Here is an update on my CQ needlecase for StitchMap. It is coming along pretty well I think. I have added fill in on the butterfly and a vine with the purple flowers at the bottom. I need to finish the spider's legs and some more of the seams need to be completed.
Scarey but I taught myself to crochet tonight. No it is not great but I am sure with some practice I can do better. I didn't enjoy this....................made me tense and on edge but the future will tell. Hoping my BFF Louise doesn't pass out when she sees this! She is such a wonderful crocheter and tatter. She taught me CQ but I have always been afraid to ask her to teach me to crochet as my mother told me I was the only person she ever saw who could make their crochet work get smaller instead of larger!! Leave it to me, couldn't have been the teacher could it??? LOL
On the left is another vintage embroidery that I found and finished up. The clouds and large tree on the right need to be finished. The next one I am working on is not vintage, because I started it many years ago, LOL I found it and the matching piece so I have removed the stitches that I had started and then started over with the colors that match the first one. They will not match but they will certainly be close.
I spent alot of time in the sewing room today trying to find things and trying to get more of the fabrics on the shelves ! I got some more boxes emptied, almost no boxes left in the sewing room. I would be in good shape except for the mixed media goodies that I have. They seem to be the sticking point in getting the room settled but where there is a will, there is a way so I will keep on going!!
My blog is a place for me to journal, add things I have made, connect with other bloggers, sewers, CQers, doll makers.
