a stitch at a time

Well I have looked at the calendar and see that we are almost half way through the first month of the year..... it has been a blur but now starting to come in focus.

My sewing area is a mess and is wanting some attention, Class samples have to get finished off and some written up. Sew as I slowly get my arm back into the swing of things  I will just do a little at a time.It is a good feeling to get the movement back in my arm and elbow.

 I also have a baby quilt to create...... this one is going to be such fun for a little one due next month. The sketch is done and now to get at it..... maybe next week but soon.
 Sew this afternoon I can say that I have the supply list sent off and the machine sample finished to go with the hand work sample of the Dresden Plate block.

The weather is starting to warm a bit at the moment it is -9 c outside and cloudy, the birds are enjoying the feeders...... empty again I see.

I also hope to put some of the craftsy classes to use shortly, I will re watch them as I go this time and do the homework along the way.

I have been studying the class list for this years Stitches Conference in Munster hosted by Haus of Stitches  check it out at I am looking at about 4 different days.

I was talking with the local area Arts Council this morning and we are going to host another quilt show at the gallery in June...... Run Away with Quilts. They will be running an ad in the paper to let the local quilters know sew that they have time to do a little sewing or find that treasure they want to share. I am hoping that we will get a nice selection of Runners for the table or your bed as well as larger quilted items and wall hangings.

Well that's bee my day ..... Have a good one and stitch a little just for fun

  1. Good to hear that you are getting a few things done Annette. Lovely to have a new baby to look forward to - and the opportunity to make a new quilt! xx

  2. Considering your challenges with your elbow you have been quite productive and have lots of wonderful plans for the near future . Have fun stitching but take it slow .
