1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Slow and Steady Gets it Done on: June 20, 2015 09:23:18 AM

This quilt was started as part of Project Quilting Season 6.  It was the last challenge and due sometime in March.  Didn't make it.  But I kept picking it up and doing a bit more.

It is finally done. It has bits of linen to give it some texture and a flannel back to make it cozy.  It is 24 x 36 inches.

I finished a thing!

The #PQ off-season challenges are to use a specific set of colors, one per month and create a 20 x 20 inch quilt following using a specific block as inspiration. For May, I choose orange.  The inspiration block was Monkey Wrench. 

Whenever I hear the phrase Monkey Wrench, I immediately think of Edward Abbey's book "The Monkey Wrench Gang".  Haduke is the main character, thus the title of my quilt.

This project is turning out to be a blast.  The inspiration block for June is the Friendship star.  I'm thinking blue for the color selection and thinking true blue... but who knows how that will turn out.  Stay tuned. 

3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / MONSTERS! on: May 06, 2015 06:18:43 PM

And another project digitized by me!  MONSTERS.  Most have hearts. Some have little robots.  I'm still deciding if I want to make pockets. 

About 6 inches tall.  Digitized using Stitch ERA Universal.  Made of fleece.
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / llama! on: May 04, 2015 10:41:28 AM

Here is another stuffie. This one is a llama.  I have been looking for animal shapes that are easily identified to make into stuffies.  As always, this one was digitized using the Stitch Era Universal software and is constructed of fleece.  It is about 7 inches tall.
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Eggs! It is about time those chickens started pulling their weight around here on: April 29, 2015 06:21:48 PM

I have been having entirely too much fun digitizing and making in-the-hoop stuffies.  These little eggs crack me up.  

They are 3-4 inches tall and made of fleece.  I use Stitch ERA Universal for digitizing. 
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Land of the Midnight Sun on: January 25, 2015 07:55:53 PM

This is my response to Project Quilting 6.2 Sunrise/sunset. It is made from some fabric I got in Alaska last summer along with some background fabric that mysteriously appeared in my stash.  No really.  I have no idea where, why or when I bought it!  But it works for this project so I'll call it a win. 

Pattern is Delectable Dog Sleds by Lisa Moore (yes!  I followed a pattern!)  It measures 19 x 50 inches and is machine pieced and quilted.  I am NOT good at stitch in the ditch.  It took forever!

7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / more trees on: January 25, 2015 07:47:52 PM

A quick quilt finish for a donation to a great organization.  This is made from scraps of my other 'River Birch' projects.  It measures 13 x 15 inches and has fast finish triangles for hanging.
8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / As long as we are talking FSL (lace earrings) on: January 21, 2015 05:30:31 PM

Sorry the picture is so terrible.  This is a pair of FSL earrings.  It is a Showalter design.  I've made about 100 pairs of various lace earrings.  

These are from Urban Threads... of course.  I haven't tried digitizing FSL yet.  
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / FSL Snowflakes on: January 21, 2015 02:15:58 PM

I made a bunch of these last year.  It is an Urban Threads design.
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Babushka Doll on: January 20, 2015 05:50:08 AM

Here is another one of my digitizing projects.  It is trickier than it should be to get the applique parts to work out properly.   And I am still working on getting the proportions right so that she feels right. 

This one is much closer with a narrower base and an elongated head.  Once I get this one finalized, I am going to make a dent in my scrap pile!
