Mad Catch Up

I made yet another mad dash to catch up on my Splendid Sampler, only to fall behind again.  I'd gotten really sick for about 3 weeks and did no machine work at the time.  Then, when I got a little caught up, I forgot to take pictures...  And, you know, became obsessed with sports while the Olymics were on.  You know sometimes you just got to let it go.  Thank God the Olympics are over so I can go back to not caring about sports at all!  That sucked down SOOOO much of my time!

So, I apologize for the crappy pictures once again.  I bought a proper lighting set up but did not anticipate that I would be too lazy to use it...  I love the fabrics I used in the "crazy block" above.  The large floral is from the backer of a quilt that I just finished & I was super excited to use it again!

 I like this block but I feel like I might need to add a bit to the center of the flowers.  In the picture, it looks a little mashed together.  I loved using the rick rack for the basket handle.
 This hand applique one took awhile.  I had a couple pieces on, then realized they were super crooked, so I took them off and started again.

 I tried stitching this while I was sick and watching the Olympics.  You can see how wonky I got.  Also, the fabric really reads lavendar next to my other blocks.  It may not make it to the end.
  I thought this block was so cute!  I decided to use buttons for the pin heads, not sure if it reads like a pin now that I did it but it was a decent idea.
 Then this cute little guy!  Lots of little pieces but he's so cute!  His light pink body shows up better in real life.  I thought using red barn wood fabric for the tree was genius.  Just sayin' I have my moments.

Here's another redo, I originally had a solid pink where the stripes are but they got totally lost.

No complaints on this one.  Very cute block.  I do love hand embroidery.

So, I'm probably another 10 behind by now but that's okay.  I might have some time this weekend.  I think the next few were pieced which might go a little quicker.  Be sure to stop by, check out all the new stuff that's been added.  You might find something you just HAVE to have.  Use coupon code HELLOTHERE to receive 30% off.

  1. Love the plaid fabric you used in your basket block. Possibly this was another moment for you??? Looks wicker-like!

    Your work is beautiful!!! I also like the stripe in the multi-layered flower. Such pizazz!!!!

  2. Of course my favourite is the embroidered one and also the crazy quilt one (but you would have guessed that already!). If you aren't really happy with the buttons on the pumpkin one, how about replacing them with a couple of beads?

  3. I liked color combos:)) Hand embroidered one is so pretty, I love that kind of work. Good job:))
