Let's Bee Social

Hello All,

I've finally got to do some more work on my Bear. On Sunday we had a beautiful, but windy day here. The wind was cold. My family was outside doing various things and I sat down at my sewing machine, had my music on, and proceeded to get some blocks made.

I only messed up 3 times.... sigh~ had to get that old seam ripper out and made the same mistake twice.

Finally I got them whipped into shape though ;)

I am using a 10" stack of Fusion Blooms for my bear and the bear paws, so my bear is going to be scrappy. I'm not sure if I am going to like it or not, I might end up redoing him. But I will see what he looks like once he is all pieced together.

Linking up with Lorna.

Have a great day all. post signature

WIP Wednesday

Hello All,

We've had a nice little break in our weather, a bit of sun does wonders, doesn't it? And now we'll be back to rain and possible snow flurries for the next 5 or 6 days. I find that I get a bit more sewing done when it's nice out. As the boys are outside playing more. But still...not a lot.

I am chain piecing the last two full bear paw blocks (for Lorna's bear paw QAL, then I can start on the bear himself.

As I am using a layer cake for the bear paws, I am piecing two at a time. That way I don't get my colors mixed up. It will be good to start on the bear, I am tired of the paws.... teeheeh, and I'm only doing the baby size. I get bored with blocks so easily...

Anyways, I've found that I can easily do embroidery when I'm just hanging out in the living room with the kids. This is my first piece, it's not done yet, so I am just going to show you a bit of it.

I'm not doing too bad :) It makes me miss hand quilting though, so I might get one of my quilt tops out and start hand quilting it... I might, we'll just have to wait and see..haha.

Have a great day!

Linking up with Lorna.
