of embroidery work this past week or so.
The first set is called "Country Chickens" from Ace Point Embroidery.
I love chickens and since my house is a early 1900's farm house, I'm doing the whole kitchen in a chicken/country theme. It all started with some old antique chicken/rooster salt n pepper shakers passed down to me from my mom.
Next a embroidery swap buddy sent me some really nice chicken kitchen towels.
So now I'm adding to the theme. I'm going to do some place-mats, hot mitts, potholders, and napkins with some of these stitch-outs. Then I want to do a whole table cover to coordinate with some of the folk art floral designs.
I made this recipe book cover today. It's just a basic 3-ring binder and I'll add some clear page holders to
Recognize the fabric. I have used it in my "Hearts Desire" Applique quilt project as well as it is the same fabric I used to cover my ironing boards a week or so ago. And I still have lots of it left, so you'll probably be seeing more of it.
You saw a little of this project last week.
As you can see, I've added quite a few more blocks since then.
And of course I'm still playing with border idea's
They were just to nice to pass up. These designs are also from Ace Point Embroidery. I'm not affiliated, just love her designs and do some testing for her, so you'll see a lot of what is new over at Ace Point, here on my blog.
I have no idea what I'm going to make with them yet.
And then there was these butterflies. Again, i don't know exactly what to make yet, but I'm sure I'll find something. : )
APRON SETSI finished the cute little kitty apron, and just need to put the binding on the pot holders.
I showed it to some family members and now it looks like I need to make more. So I've cut out four more sets.
Each will have different embroidery.
And I have more pot holders in the works...
Lastly, I'm still cutting out more applique leaves for my Hearts Desire Blocks.
I ran out of my original green, so I need to do some fabric hunting before I can proceed.
I have not been able to do any of my evening stitching on this for about four day's now, and I'm not so patiently waiting for the opportunity to finish these blocks up so that I can start the first border. It's all so exciting seeing it come together. It's kind of like waiting the arrival of a special gift.
Have a great week everyone.
