Design Wall Monday


I haven't spent much time in the sewing room this week so nothing is on my wall. I was pretty busy finishing up this sweater so my sweet Mae could "wear it tomorrow". That's what she said whenever she saw it. How could I not hurry and get it ready for tomorrow.

I got this little wall hanging from the free box at a retreat a few years ago. I kept picking it up and thought about starting it. Then one day, I decided to work on the embroidery at my Wednesday group.  That was finished and then it was set aside again.  I found the bag while looking for something else and told myself to sit down and get busy.

One episode of Wild at Heart on Netflix, I had all the preprinted fabrics bonded with wonder under stuff and  the shapes cut out.  So why not start another episode and iron them on to the button fabric.  Everything was preprinted so that part went really fast.  Next thing I knew, I had started a 3rd episode and was playing with machine stitches.  All I have left to do is stitch around the outside and decide which of my shirt plaids I'll use to bind it with. I didn't care for the way they say to finish the edge.  I'll add some button establishments too. Soon it will hang on my wall.

I like to knit/sew while watching Netflix, too. It makes the time go by quickly, "I'll just finish one more row, and then one ore row, and then one more row. . . "

I have that series in my Netflix queue! Right now I'm working my way through 7 seasons of Medium. I play it on my computer while I'm quilting. It does help doesn't it?

Crazy Patch borders on that block, how cute! I'm glad to see something QUILT-Y happening, no matter how big or small.

Great combination of embroidery and quilting!

What a super way to get into the quilty thing. My choice is books on tape. Good for you for rescuing that little piece. I'm not sure I would have been so diligent!

I remember when I never had UFOs and wondered why people didn't finish everything. Now I wonder if I will ever finish all I start. ;-)

That is a very cute wallhanging. It must be the year for finishing up UFOs for bloggers.
