Taking a break from borders and backings and bindings oh my, I decided this week to use my embroidery machine. It tends to be a very expensive doorstop if I don't remind myself to use it once in awhile! I am a huge fan of Laurel Burch's art and when she started designing fabric a few years ago, I thought I had died and gone to heaven!!! As is often the case, I usually think her fabric is too pretty to cut into. I embroidered four of her cat designs from a Bernina card and will most likely make a bag with this fabric and these kitties. That is, if I can make myself run a rotary cutter over this luscious stuff.
Another diversion this week has been doll quilts. I don't have any daughters or granddaughters--I just like doll quilts!!! I found this little vintage Scotty pattern and hand-embroidered two of them yesterday at my mini group. Love to embroider by hand. I have had the Scotty fabric in my stash for a while--just a FQ. Wish I could find some more of it, it is so darn cute. I kind of have a thing for Scotties right now. Don't know why, I've never owned one. I blame it on Mary Engelbreit LOL! I need to add a little more on to this quilt--either squares or a border. Then I can handquilt it in front of the TV this weekend. Callin' it McPatch for now.
Hope everyone in Blogland has a super weekend! Sew long!
