Works in Progress

When I busily work on projects, I tend to be very quiet and introverted.  I often forget to post a blog to say something about what I'm working on.  I'll try to be more outspoken, promise.  :-)  

I'm happy to say that there is some progress on the potholder project, I made a few more EPP pieces from scraps.



These EPP pieces are so much fun.  I fussy cut the snow bears fabric.  They are so adorable.

 

I also picked out some fabric for the Hands2Help project. 

 

 

I just love cute prints of soft flannel.  It is my favorite material for baby blankets.  Aren't they cozy and lovable?

Last year, through the Hands2Help project, I made a baby quilt for The Little Lambs Foundation for Kids.  Among other things, they work with law enforcement to provide comfort kits for children in distress situations.  I would like to do the same this year.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

April OMG

 Hi Everyone,

It's time to set a goal for April.  This month I'll make a baby quilt for the Project Hands2Help 2021.  I talked about it here.  


I'll make a Faux Rag quilt using a technique found in this book.  I haven't decided yet it's going to be a girl or boy version, or may be both?   I'll keep you all posted as the project progresses.

 

For the Potholder project, I think I'll make some of them in Christmas theme.  I have a very cute Snow Bear print that I can use.  

 


April is going be a fun month, I'm looking forward to working on these projects and some other things that I've engaged in.


Thanks for stopping by.

Have a great weekend.

Fun Projects for Fundraising

Hi Everyone,

 

Everyday I try to find some projects to do.  Not that I don't have any WIP,  but sometimes things didn't work out the way I plan and I have to move on. 

I was trying to work on a new project based on an logo I saw on a Podcast on Youtube.  It was a very interesting design and I wanted to challenge myself to make it with a raw edge applique.  I wrote the owner of the website to  ask for permission but didn't hear anything back.  After 4 weeks, I decided to move on.

Have you heard of the Textile Talk that was put on by the IQM (International Quilt Museum), the MQG, SAQA...etc?  I have participated in for sometimes now.  They featured different artists and guests.  I love to hear what other artists have to say.  Some topics were very interesting and fascinating.   I just learned about this Project Potholder from the IQM website.  I think it would be fun to participate and help out with the fundraising.  It's been hard for many organizations and small businesses alike in the past year up to now.  And do I have supplies for potholders?  As you might remember, I made quite a few potholders for myself and gifts last December.   I think this is a perfect project for scraps.  If you're interested, check out their website for the guidelines and join in the fun.

I'm working on 2 projects behind the scene.  One is for the MQG Journal and the other one is for the Simply Moderne magazine. They both will be on toward the end of the year.  I'm sorry I can't show you anything until then. :-(

 

Spring is in the air and in my garden.  Every year I'm greeted by these beauties.

 



The reason there is greeting words of 'Happy Saturday' in the Freesia picture because I sent it my LINE friends group in Thailand.  In Thailand, e
veryday has a color associating to it and purple is for Saturday.  Every morning my friends will send these greetings to our group.  I put some of the images in a layout for you.  You can guess what color goes with which day.



I'm so grateful for friends.  Every morning I receive such greetings from them.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
