Stitch Love: Sweet Creatures Big & Small

I can't get over the super cute embroidery designs in Mollie's new Stitch Love book! I'm having a hard time trying to choose a favorite design, (bet you can't either). 
The book format has a pure simple cuteness reminiscent of Japanese zakka style books (which I love). The creatures are categorized into habitat groups, and they are all pictured already stitched. I truly like the fact, that when you open the book, the projects start shortly after. All the basics of embroidery and sewing are found at the back, along with the super cute traceable embroidery designs/patterns, and the projects templates.

Now, which "sweet creature" will I stitch first!?!?! 
PS: I have no affiliation with the author, or publisher house. I'm just sharing some "Stitch Love"! :-) Mollie's patterns are always so cute!

What I've Been Up To

As I mentioned on my previous post, here are a few peeks of current wip's.
First is Jenny's free BOM "The Vintage Kitchen". The original 
BOM is in redwork, but I'm doing mine in blue... it goes better with my kitchen ;-).

I'm also doing another hush-hush stitching... only a little peek of it for now. I'm embroidering with Cosmo Multi-Work it comes in a spool in 2 strands, however I'm using 3 strands for this wip.

I'm still working on my Spring Stitching Club (pattern by Mollie Johanson aka: Wild Olive). This and the two other wip's above came with me on a family vacation trip. Hopefully by the time we are back home, these four hexies will be pieced into hexagon flowers. 

Before I go, for those of you interested on Jenny's BOM "The Vintage Kitchen",... here is how the finished project will look like once completed. Small and manageable, I most likely be doing all the stitcheries although not sure I will complete the entire mini quilt as shown. Perhaps you may want to visit Jenny's blog to check it out for yourself. Here is a link to her blog post.

I guess this is all for now... 'til next time!

CQ Block Finished

It's been a while since my last post. I completed my Crazy Quilting block from Kathy's online class. It was great!!! Kathy is an excellent teacher, giving encouragement and constructive feedback when needed. There'll be another beginners class soon. Kathy will post on her blog when sign ups are open. So be on the look out if you are interested... sign ups only last a few days.
There is an intermediate class that I may want to take some time in the future, but for now I must work on many of my wip's to see if I'm able to finish a few of them before 2015 ends.
PS: Kathy's blog link here.

I will try to be back soon with peeks at what I'm up to these days.
Until next time!
