Now as I was contemplating her kindness and gazing at the gorgeous thread I felt as if I really wanted to use it on something special. After a little pondering I decided to get my 'long term (very long term) crazy patch blocks' ( some of you will have seen them before) out and ponder some more. This in turn led me to sewing all 9 blocks together.....
As I have wanted to do some layering and embroidery over the seams. Most of the blocks are complete like these two...
but there are others that need a lot more stitching on them. Which led me to source all my lovely threads, beads and notions and find a case to put it all in.
I want everything together so I can do a little whenever the mood takes me. These blocks are very special to me as I began them after joining a Crazy patch stitching group hosted by the wonderful and very talented Ruth Stoneley who passed away shortly after from breast cancer. I even have a few very special stitches in some of my blocks that were done by Ruth herself. So I would like it to be completed at some stage in the near future. So thank you Patricia for your kindness and for getting me inspired all over again.
I have backing fabric, batting and I am all set to sandwich the "Faerie Bear" quilts hopefully tomorrow.
I have finished stitching block 4 of my bear stitcheries and I bet you can't guess what she is celebrating???
Block 5 is in the hoop.
Today is a very special day as my lovely friend Teresa from All Things Vintage is celebrating a very special birthday so why don't you pop over and help her blow out "ALL" those candles. LOL!
I wish you a day as special as you are. *****Happy Birthday****
I am off to get myself ready to be out the door quick smart for a spot of stitching tonight with some friends.
