Oh Well...

I was hoping to finish this quilt before September... it didn't happen.

Taking care of health, family and daily life events take priority which meant that all else was on hold.
August was a very busy and challenging month indeed!

Stash Addition

I pre-ordered Little Stitches by Aneela Hoey,
from my book club and it arrived yesterday!
Want a tiny peek?
Thought so! ;-)

The book contains complete instructions and diagrams for embroidery stitches (plus suggestions and ideas on how to use them) and for the twelve projects using some of the hand embroidery patterns in the book. I already have a few favorites and by the way, you could trace or iron-on the super cute embroidery patterns... neat ha!?!

Above you can see the detachable iron on sheet of embroidery patterns that comes folded on the back of the book. I also love that the embroidery keys for the projects are given in the form of charts!
Aneela talks a bit about her book on her blog Comfortstitching on this post, where she is showcasing her super cute new fabric
line: Sew Stitchy for Moda.

PS: (I hope to be able to catch up with blogs and emails over the weekend)

Betsy's Closet In Stitches SAL

Though I mentioned that may not be able to blog until the end of the month I'm too excited and despite being already tucked in for the night
I needed to share:
Betsy's Closet In Stitches SAL
(link above to SAL blog)

(picture above links to designer blog post)
I must first finish the tummy time quilt for my wee one and then start this one... it is for oldest dd, for being such a great big sister.
It will be a surprise!
I'm still waiting for my pattern to arrive but already have my fabrics and threads ready :-D, all from my stash.

At first I was thinking in using Cosmo floss but then when I saw that Jenny was using her Finca perle cotton #16
I remembered that I had some on my stash in #8, only that the green I have doesn't go very well with my fabrics so may need to get a better match.

I'm very excited about this quilt! It is small and so cute! I'm thinking that by the end of this month or by September I should be able to start working on it.
Are you working on an exciting project at the moment?
Ok time to close my eyes and catch
some ZzzZzZzzz's.
PS (I'm slowly starting to work on this as well.)
