Embroidery Day

This past couple weeks I've been busy with Dr. appts, errands, looking at property (we are planning on moving), and de-cluttering various rooms in the house. So needless to say, I haven't gotten a lot done in the sewing room.

Today I caught up on some embroidery work for Ace Point Designs.

These two wreath's are tiny, but oh so gorgeous stitched out.  They could go on a number of things from clothing to home decor.

This afternoon I spent digitizing my own quilt blocks.  My program is a little outdated, so it takes me forever to digitize one design.   I still need to stitch it out  to see if it all turned out as I had hoped.  Maybe I can get to that tomorrow.

Other then that, I've been working on flying colors.  Here is one of the blocks again.
This quilt has really tested my patience.  But I am going to get it done.  Determination shall prevail. 
Besides,  if I set it aside, it is just that much harder to pick up where I left off.  Believe me, I know what i'm talking about - after setting this project aside for about six months - it was a real pain to start it again.
If I had stuck to my original pattern, I wouldn't be in such a frenzy right now over it all, but stupid me, decided to alter my plans after finishing the center section.  So now, I have to revise all the outer blocks, add borders where there originally wasn't any, and hope it will all fit together as I go along.

Tomorrow's another day,  just have to keep my vision and keep going.


  1. Rhonda, here is a Liebster Award for you.

  2. Very pretty embroidery blocks! Your quilt block looks great - I don't like leaving a project and later trying to pick up where I left off either.
