Applique' and Stitchery

Block one of the Tisket a Tasket Block of the Month is now complete (except for the buttons on the vine which I'll add after quilting)! And I must say block one was as fun to make as block two! Also, Anne is offering some embroidery tips starting with this post!


About a week ago I was getting ready to go somewhere and went to grab a stitchery project to take with me...I didn't have any...so this week I've made it my goal to have several things ready to go. But as soon as I get one ready, I think, "Oh that will stitch up quickly," and I stitch it up! So I'm really no further along on my goal...but I do have a few little finishes!


I finished this little section from block 3 of my Leanne's House quilt...and peaking out from behind it is my first stitchery in the half-square triangle blocks...I'll reveal that one when it's complete.

I also finished these two free patterns from Gail Pan designs. The one on the right is block 2 of "A Christmas Wish," a block of the month Christmas pattern.
I feel like I'm getting a little caught up on my projects...but the sewing room is somehow in a bit of a mess...so I need to do some organizing before I start sewing again!

I always try to have something to work on too but sometimes I do the same thing you do. Oh well. Love the basket on your snowman block and all the other blocks are great too. I am behind. Oh me.

You have been quite busy with these sweet projects! I wish I had some on-the-go stitching projects ready - great planning.
