Out Like a Lamb

Fly a Kite 032708
Red Thread: Fly a Kite
Bent Creek
Weeks & GAST on 32ct Light Mocha
Finished 3/25/08

So many things to show you, since I wasn’t able to post earlier in the week like I had hoped to! As you can see, I finished off my March block for the Red Thread SAL. This was a fun little block. I am so glad to be caught up on this and have it going so smoothly!

Red Thread 032708

I also made a little start on the border. I need to go pick up some more Bark thread, because I am just about out. I really enjoy stitching on this piece, and I am finding it a little hard to put down.

Cuisine d 27Ete 033008

I did pick up my Cuisine d’Ete again and stitch on it a little bit more the past couple of nights. I have had such a hard time with the second motif. I must have ripped the white outline out twice before I got it right. But, I am still loving it on the Lemon Zest linen.

Wedding Quilt 032508

I have, of course, also been working on the wedding quilt. Here you can see I’ve sewn on all the top rows. I actually have two more bottom rows sewn on than you see in this photo. So, two more rows are all I’m lacking, and then I can begin quilting. I have just a little over one week. Wish me luck – I think it’s going to be down to the wire!

Eric and I are going to the museum today to see their latest exhibit before it closes. The exhibit is early Christian art, and I am looking forward to it. I’ll let you know how it is. I also went to my book club Friday night, but haven’t quite finished my book yet – I’m almost there.

Until next time – enjoy each moment, and have fun with your stitching!

I am grateful for a new friend.

  1. Hi Michelle,

    Your red thread piece is really coming along, and I love the little embellishments that are a part of it. Nice warm but subtle colours too.

    The Cuisine design is looking so pretty too, and I love the bright yellow material that you’re stitching it on. This’ll look so cute with your Lemon Meringue Pie piece from last year.

    I think that your Wedding Quilt is going to be stunning. Heck, it already is! It’s red! How can you miss?? What a beauty. I hope that you can make your deadline with it.

    Your necklace and ear rings set turned out very nicely too. A nice Springy colour.

    We’re actually expecting a temperature of 12 celsius on Tuesday with rain. So that should wash away some more of our snow.
    So Spring is slowly making it’s presence known here. At last!

    How’s Romeo been doing with his insulin medication??? Hope he’s behaving himself and being careful.

    I’m not sure if I’d care to do one over stitching, because of my bad eyesight and all, but that little bunny on your Barnabee piece is so darn cute it’d be worth a bit of a headache and some eye strain.

    Cheers!!!

  3. I love that Lemon Zest fabric! So bright and sunny. That’s about the same color as our kitchen, at least when we get finished with all the painting.

    Seeing your finish on the kite block was just perfect for a last-day-of-March post. What a nice touch of spring! And that quilt is looking so great!! Can’t wait to see the finish.
