It's been a while but today I'm joining Kathy's Slow Stitching Sunday.
I have a cross stitch ornament to share that has been done for a month. One of my addictions is Santa ornaments designed by Sandra Cozzolino. I've made soooo many of her ornaments
but I still have so many to make! I like to do cross stitch on airplane trips.
I pushed through my tension issues on the latest quilting project. It was so painful! But I am now ready to add the binding and that will be my handwork project for the coming week. I absolutely love putting the binding on and I almost always do the final stitching by hand.
Fall has arrived in Eagle River, Alaska. The lichen is changing colors on the mountains around us and as soon as the weather cooperates I will try to capture a photo of the gorgeous colors. It prompted me to change out a quilt by my front door to one of my all-time favorites...a braided quilt, Blazing Autumn.
I don't have many big walls for quilt displays so this quilt had to get folded at the top to shorten it...it works! I'm going to paint the heat register to match the wall soon...boy that bugs me in this photo!
With this wall in mind I have a new quilt designed using this bear-printed batik. The colors are hard to capture in a photo but they are the colors of my slate tile floor.
Of course I had to throw in a bear paw block with this design. Here's what I've got worked up on EQ.
Still some tweaking to simplify the design. Working with EQ 7 means trying to figure out how to put the image in my head on a computer program. Sometimes I think just drawing it out on graphing paper like the "old days," would be so much easier but I sure do enjoy playing!
