Here is what I finished this past week…
And yes… to show off the blocks with any detail… it took 2 shots…
Several have asked so I thought I would share…
Here are the needles I use for Perle 12 cotton thread…
They have quite a selection I saw this week now at Joann’s in store… and in the sewing notions department you can find these quilting betweens by Dritz in an assortment of sizes from 5 to 10. These have a round eye and are easier to thread perle 12 and in the largest size ~ perle 8 even with these needles… or you can use a different style needle instead… but I like how a between handles with my thimbles… So I had gone to Joann’s this week to check where these needles were still located and they are NOT with the quilting supplies but with the sewing notions as I mentioned above… and I got a ball of DMC brand perle 12 cotton ecru that I am using in the charm squares for each shape… my ball is almost gone now… and with coupons I got the needles for FREE basically!!!
Me and my bestie use this handmade version of a thimble… I made a tutorial to share with you how to make one for yourself if you are interested ….
While drinking fresh brewed coffee!
We just got a new basic coffee pot … and a holder for our fave sugar substitute “Stevia”… we are making several lifestyle changes presently and Stevia has been a happy one of those! So we bought the ceramic container to hold it with ocean shell motifs on it at goodwill for all of .99 cents! lol
Well that is all for now I think. I look forward to seeing what you are each up to … I am linking this to Kathy’s Quilts today HERE… Hope you stop there for a visit as well! She has LOTS of FUN going on there too and some interesting links if you wanna see some qayg techniques!!!!
So until my next post with hopefully more progress to show… make time to
Great post. I particularly like your thimbles as I too have large fingers and sometimes even the large size doesn't fit my wide fingers. I will look in Joann's for that thimble. I do not envy you those tiny HSTs.
I usually never think of Netflix when I stitch in the early morning….but I did today! I watched an episode of Call the Midwife…but I enjoy Good Witch, too!
Hi Kathi, Thanks for the info on thumb quilts! I've never been able to find one to fit my large thumb either, and will definitely need to find one of those at Joann's and see if it might work. Happy Sunday!
I love the variety of designs you are quilting in each block… that is a stitch intensive quilting plan!Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching
I like your seashell stevia holder and I love finding treasures like that from Goodwill. Your different designs on your quilt are really pretty and just seem to make it pop. I love what you are doing there! I don't use a thumb quilt; just one on my middle finger when quilting. Your feather quilt is going to be incredible!
Thanks for sharing info on the thumb thimble. I need to try this out!
I am inspired now to go to my quilt room!
I am a fan of The Good Witch too, loved her since JAG. I really need to get in the groove and get Netflix, dump the cable! You are an inspiration.
