I wanted to share a little of what I have been working on, I did bring along with me mainly embroidery projects. I am still working of my list of UFO's and to be honest with myself I'll be working off that list for quite some time.
The ones I been working on is Scandinavian Christmas by Lynette Anderson
this is the quilt pattern and the section I am working on is the 3rd part.
Right now I have all the appliqued parts done and I am working on the embroidery details.
Done mainly in the back stitch and some stain stitching for the hearts and french knots (I use a colonial knot)
Then the next thing I'll need to do is the cross stitched border. I copy the design on treansfer-eze and then will apply it to the block.
That is what I have used on my Snowman quilt that I doing (also on the list)
I did finish the one block I brought with me.
I using the same fabric for all the blocks, a light motley blue.
I love working in a stem stitch, I think it a pretty outline stitch. Not sure if you can tell but the transfer-ezes is still on the block, I hadn't washed it out yet.
And instead of using a floss I'm using Sulky 12wt thread. It a varigated blue which I like how it works up.
Now I did bring a few other projects but hether or not I'll have the time or energy to work on, will see. Those "little dudes" tucker Grandma out.
