Some more sewing, embroidering that is in progress

I have not been idle at all this summer! In between working, yes, I have had to go in to work a few times this summer; I have been getting some wonderful times to piece or embroider on items that I have been wanting to accomplish or like the previous post try a new pattern that fits the fabric!

The first piece to show you is the sunflower that I have started, put down and come back to. This is completed in the embroidery hoop and is a combination of applique and embroidery. I still have a lot to go, but this is one block to show for now:

Next, is a tablerunner that I have wanted to do for quite some time--it is fish and I really do love the fabric from my stash that I used in this table runner--next get it sandwiched and quilted! I do quilt the smaller ones!

On another note, I want to share a great blog with you, and she is having a giveaway for long arm quilting also! Her name is Joanne and she is from New Hampshire--her work is wonderful, so stop by and see her work and take a look at the giveaway too! Here is the link: Splitting Stitches

Here's to many hours of sewing and quilting! Love being back in the blogging world--there is just so much going on here, to see and learn!
Until later, quilt and sew every spare minute!


  1. Your lovely sunflower is so appropriate for the time of the season. My sunflowers just bloomed this week. I also think your fish are very cool.
