Making a Christmas Elf Forest - The Beginning

Christmas gnomes and fiber trees

A sneak peak at my Christmas Elf forest! As many of you know, my collection of Scandinavian Christmas elves has been growing each year. But it is way too easy for them to disappear among the other ornaments and branches of my holiday tree, so I have decided that what is needed is a forest of their very own - a forest of "fiber trees" and mushrooms!

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!
