Made a little progress

This butterfly has been in my head for a very long time.  I cut it out of silk a number of years ago and then it sat there.  A few weeks back I decided it has been a UFO for long enough!   I have used Inktense blocks and pencils to add some marks to it.  I have machine stitched it to an interfacing and I have done the blanket stitch around the edges.  Next up, I will be adding beads and possibly sequins.  I am ever so thankful that I get to be creative!

Work in Progress Wednesday

My crazy quilt block for July is making progress.  Possibly I will get it done in the next couple of days but I am certainly not going to stress about it.  The center piece is made of paper which is pretty unusual, I know.  I don't know that I have ever seen someone use paper in a crazy quilt.  But why not!  I did back the paper with a fusible interfacing to make it more stable.  I love being creative!

Take a Stitch Tuesday

 The feather stitch works up quickly and looks great.  I use this stitch a lot.   It is probably on almost all of my crazy quilt blocks.  I have seen some really clever uses of it on Facebook.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/128698983911229/?ref=bookmarks

I heart Macro

The texture in the leaves is what really appeals to me in this photo.  Nature is magnificent!

Fruit Cups is coming along

I am having fun working on my art bra 'Fruit Cups'.  Her Cup Runneth Over Show and Auction in support of HopeSpring Cancer Support Center is coming quickly!  I need to stitch some more fruit beads along the edge but then it should be done.  I won't know for sure until I get that stitched though.

Work in Progress Wednesday


My bead journal project for July fits with a space themed body of work I have been doing.  I added a bit of hand embroidery to this and now I think it is complete.

Take a Stitch Tuesday

I enjoy doing the buttonhole stitch.  I had a family wedding to attend this past weekend and used the drive there to stitch this.  It took about two hours to go all the way around this butterfly.  I used numerous colors of hand dyed thread.  There still a lot of stitching to be done on this including some beading.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/128698983911229/?fref=nf orhttp://pintangle.com/2015/07/21/tuesday-take-a-stitch-challenge/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Pintanglecom+%28pintangle.com%29
