Having such a great week y’all!

I am so excited to share a host of fun shots with you this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I have been slow stitching away!!!

In my last post I left you all hanging with this shot! lol

Now let me show you what I have been up to >>> but FIRST!

A close up ๐Ÿ™‚

of a needle keeper I made from a refrigerator magnet by adding a strong magnet to this.. and have a free one to keep it in place on the quilt… then any of the surface will hold my busy needles! ย So much fun too to reread this cool magnet with each change of a needle! ๐Ÿ™‚

If you use a frame do you have a needle keeper you use?? I would love to hear about yours! ย Or how you organize your needles when working with more than one ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I have 3 going on this quilt… (one blue, one white, and one for the edge stitching ๐Ÿ˜‰

Above is my quilting plan and where I was this morning when I took this shot is highlighted ๐Ÿ™‚

Blue Diamond Quilt is not a final name but a better working name than I had going… so far we haven’t heard a name for this quilt that fits it and the importance of this quilt to us… having a redo ๐Ÿ™‚

I want to share a close up and an artsy shot of my stitching too!

Can you tell which is which?? lol!

It is so hard to show you all texture when using a frame I am finding.. I have taken shots all times of the day and eve… Not having outside light is hard too though… I do miss stitching outside but by only leaving the door unlatched… I can hear the bubblers and squirrels and birds outside not far away ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are a couple shots of my frame…

This first shot was taken after my first rolling of the quilt…

ย And below I am soon to turn the quilt down more in the frame…

I like that this quilt has a pattern I can highlight to watch my progress… I will have to come up with a visual way to keep track of my progress for sure! ย Any tips for this are welcomed!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Lest I forget… next to my recliner is Rustic Flowers Wall Hanging project for the kitchen! I am currently half done echo quilting the center applique… I must be honest that it isn’t getting much of my attention here lately though! lol

I doubt I will write again before Thanksgiving this year…


I have many things pulling for my attention presently.. more projects to come out of the sewing room as well as every 3 days to be ready to roll this quilt frame again… will definitely keep me busy… then will be time to dress our home for Christmas!!! ย I am excited for that !!!

Sunday I do plan to link this post for slow stitching with Kathy’s Quilts ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย Come HERE and check out what everyone else is slow stitching on Sunday ๐Ÿ™‚

Until my next post have a blessed weekend my friends and …
