So, here’s the thing. I am working on LOTS of stuff. LOTS. But… they are projects for 2016, so I can’t show them yet! It makes it hard to do an “in the studio” blog post… So here are some sneak peeks of what I’ve been doing in my studio lately.
You’ll notice that these are all sewing projects- some machine (piecing, applique), and some hand (embroidery, stitching wool, English Paper Piecing (EPP) hexies)…. a little bit of everything! …..except…. painting…. I would love to get back to my paints soon! Oh it’s so hard to fit it all in…
Here is a beautiful project you will be seeing sometime this month or next, with some elegant metallic touches:
This is a “group” project I am part of- you will see this in June 2016. The theme is “blue.” I’ve enjoyed doing some embroidery using my new Aurifil embroidery thread- I love that it comes on a spool and doesn’t tangle into a giant knot like the skeins of embroidery thread tend to do:
Another “group” project I am working on, contributing to a “sampler” quilt (I know- more teacups! I just can’t seem to get away from them, lol):
Of course, I am continuing to work on the 2016 Block of the Month. Here you can see a peek of the machine applique, and the kit fabrics (Hometown Girl by Pat Sloan for Moda Fabrics):
DON’T FORGET- we still have the contest going on, and you can win the fabric kit above for the 2016 Block of the Month!! Get the details on how to enter here.)
And a little wool project which got put aside for a while, but now I really need to get it done!
…Work on my hexie project (just for fun!) continues whenever I have a free moment or two. There are piles of these large hexies all over the living room, waiting to be stitched together:
Finally- this project with RED hexies and redwork embroidery will be revealed very soon! (Hint- look for it on newstands soon…)
So…. what are YOU working on?
