Projects Update

Happy Halloween!

stained glass pumpkin I made a few years ago

I have been working on different things this weekend.

I started sewing together the blocks for the arrowhead quilt.

This is the layout I chose.

I have been doing a bit of work on the Romanian Point Lace table center,

and still working on the braid that will surround the table center, a centimeter at a time - I need almost 2m!

Still doing tatting - this one doesn't take much concentration, and so is great in the evening watching TV (the thread looks variegated in the picture, but it is just plain beige).

I also pulled out this cross stitch I started a few years ago - maybe I will finish it for this Christmas?! It is in the basket in the picture for my blog header. This one is hard on my eyes and so has been taking a while. Yesterday I finished the beard and did everything under it!! Hours to do two square inches - I'll be lucky to finish it for Christmas!!

It is a kit by Lorri Birmingham.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

All your work is lovely as usual :) While you keep stitching away at Santa I'll see if I can finish the lace ornament you posted a tutorial for a while back. That's my Christmas goal. There are just too few hours in a day for everything I mean to do!

It is so hard when you are so creative in all sorts of work. The cross stitch is looking great despite its slow progress.

I really love all of your projects!

I noticed your pressed open seams...do you always use this technique for your quilting? I tried it before and can't say that I'm a fan. Lovely work on all your projects.
