Dutch Canal Houses Embroidery Has Been Completed. Sharing a little PDF

Dutch Canal Houses Embroidered Table Runner

Dutch Canal Houses Embroidery completed! And I am happy to report - completed in time for St. Nicholas Day last December. At least one end of it.

I am the first to notice my stitching is not perfect, but one thing I did learn is that, in this particular case at least, the whole is greater than it's imperfect parts!

Winter Solstice Quilt Block - August Update

Winter Solstice Quilt block in progress

I have made lots of progress on my Winter Solstice quilt block project this month! My goal for August was to cut all the pattern pieces and stitch them together so the block is ready for embroidery - lots of embroidery! And I am almost there!

Like I said before - making blog posts of projects that have been languishing on my to do lists year after year - best idea I ever had! Quite an effective motivator!

Dutch Canal House Embroidery - August Update (Having Too Much Fun!)

Dutch Canal Houses embroidery

Dutch Canal Houses! Great progress is being made!

I didn't plan it this way, but the table runner is becoming an opportunity to learn new stitches as I look for ways to create interest and texture.

My strategy? Simply to page through two of my most favorite stitch references until a stitch jumps out at me! Most times the stitch itself will suggest where it is best to be used!

Work in Progress - Tidal Pool Quilt Block

Tidal Pool Quilt block

I do not consider myself a quilter - and yet it is funny how many quilt projects I end up making!

Thought I would share my little tidal pool pillow top or table topper or wall hanging - it's final purpose is yet undecided!

Actually, I created this little block about a year ago. Once the yoyos were pinned in place, I set it aside to focus on Dala and that was that!
