Not Quite Yet

August went flying! Wasn't able to sneak in much time for stitching these past few weeks. However, I was able to fit in Mr. Walry below. Isn't him so cute and friendly? Mollie (from Wild Olive) has a stitch-along going on based on her book, and the 1st project was to stitch one of the creatures coming out from a pocket.
I decided to embroider the walrus onto regular quilter's cotton, add a product by Thermo Web called Fabric Fuse on the back, and turned the stitchery into a fabric sticker. Pasted it right on the opening of one of the pockets of this handy dandy Oh Joy! first aid bag from Target and voila! Now Mr. Walry will always greet me when I open the bag to work on a wip. 
As you can see I'm still working on the puppies from the Aunt Martha's embroidery transfer no.9773, in fact the female puppy is practically finished (just the tiny nose left) and I've moved on to the cute little flowers. Haven't started on the next flower for my mom's quilt yet. I'm trying to complete this kitchen towel and the redwork wip, before moving on. So next time I stop by I hope to have one of those previously mentioned projects done! Until next time!!!

Slow Summer Stitching

Loving summer! More outings, fewer sick days,… bliss! Although currently I'm on a flare, I'm hoping it passes by quickly! This past Sunday we lost a very dear friend to a rare and aggressive type of cancer. She was my spiritual sister, but also a trusted friend and mentor, a roll model, an integrity keeper, a caring/kind/loving friend… she was like a mother to me. I will miss her immensely,... until we meet again! (Rev. 21:3, 4 / John 5:29)
Redirecting to a more positive mood. There's 2 projects for gift giving that I've been trying to spend some time with (here and there). 
This one...
and this one!
Perhaps the flare will force me to slow down and spend some time stitching! ;-)
Sneaked in this little guy just to make my stitchy routine interesting and above all to put a smile on my youngest cute face, koalas are getting her attention at the moment. You don't want to know how many times I've had to wash her koala pj's because that's practically all she wants to wear all the time while in the house. This little guy is from the Stitch Love book by Mollie Johanson. (I previously posted a brief review on it here.)
Need to go now, perhaps this time I won't be absent from the blog for to long… perhaps. Next time will try to show you how things are going with the embroidered flowers for my mom's lap quilt, or some other interesting stitchy bit that may pop in. Until later! Be well!!!
