I actually sat down behind of my sewing machine , aka: Evinrude, and made a little progress on two WIPs that have been sitting around for awhile. Last year I had my family list a few things they were grateful for. I wrote them on muslin and embroidered each one. My plan was to make a Thanksgiving table runner for last year.. I'm now hoping to have it done by this year... Here are some of the embroidered blocks... ~~~ ~~~ One of my daughter's... You can tell the top block in this picture is what my husband is grateful for... I also worked a little bit on my 'Farmer's Wife' quilt blocks... I stitched up these two blocks. (#27 and #32) Here is what I have so far... The colors are a gray green and were inspired by a tree I pass by almost everyday... if I leave the house of coarse. LOL ~~~ As for Evinrude, he is my sewing machine. I named him that after the little dragonfly from 'The Rescuers'. If you've never seen it, you should... such a sweet movie.
