Pre-stitching

I have been VERY busy at work lately and it was difficult for me to get much stitching and quilting done.
Yet, there was one thing I could not delay!!!! It's the pre-stitching for the CA Wells's classes I will attend mid-November in London. Indeed, as it is a finishing class, you arrive with your pieces of linen already stitched. And this is what I'm doing right now. Want to see part of the mess on my desk ?


Well, I have to admit that I organized the mess a bit to take a nice photo for the blog!!!LOL

I think that I will be able to show you all these creations in December.

Once the pre-stitching for CAW's classes will be finished I will resume working on the Mystery Quilt2. I still have 2 blocks to sew and I'd like to finish piecing the top before the new year. Don't know if I will be able to, though!!!

My idea for 2011 is to quilt one project (the Mystery Quilt), to finish sewing the Civil War Tribute top and to have a stitching project in progress.
As is the tradition in the USA, I will start a new stitching project in January! I have already chosen and ordered it to be ready on January 1st. And I'm very excited about this lovely project. I'll show you as soon as I start it.

Besides working, stitching and quilting I read your blogs!!! And though I promised myself not to buy anything I must admit that I have been tempted by this post !!!! A booklet of pinkeeps for a good cause : the UNICEF.



It is a wonderful booklet with wonderful charts!

Nevertheless, I have been reasonable as I also found Elizabeth Precious 1817 as tempting as the booklet but I, definitely, don't have enough time!

Until later,

  1. Looks like you have stitched quite a bit already David, CA's stitching is not to time consuming, look forward to seeing that soon .)

    The pin keep book looks interesting and for a great cause too, might be tempted.

    look forward to seeing that, I am not in your league when it comes to quilts.
