The back porch on a summer afternoon, movie nights, airplane travel, beach vacations and the end of a long day.
What do these things have in common?
They are perfect times to sit and relax with a bit of slow stitching. (For full disclosure, it depends on the movie. Movies that involve lots of action scenes with things blowing up are perfect because I don't really like watching those bits!)
I finished the needle-turned applique for my orange peel project. Fabric is Painter's Canvas from Michael Miller.
This might become a pillow or maybe a wall hanging, not sure yet. I want the project to sit for a bit to make sure I don't want to add some more orange peels. I like the negative space and the asymmetrical look. What do you think?
With that project done, I wanted to start something new. And look what I found!
I love Carolyn's pattern when I first saw it in her newsletter. Care to take on another project? You can find more information on Cheryl's blog. I'm excited to get started.
First step though - what fabric should I use?
Have a wonderful day!
