I added lots of stitches to my cross stitch picture this week. I just love the colours in this project...so bright and cheerful. One friend said this pattern looks almost Scandinavian to her and I would have to agree. There is a butterfly to sew next, once the large pink flower and the beet are done.
I bought myself a HuRTy ruler (designed by Latifah Saafir) at QuiltCon and wanted to try it out on a small project before tackling a bigger quilt. Here are my first few Half Rectangle Triangles on my design wall. I am not sure what the final layout will be yet. I have more sewn, but not trimmed yet. Maybe, by next week, I will have a little quilt top to show you. If you have one of these rulers, Latifah has a series of YouTube videos online to watch to learn how to use the ruler. The print fabric is by Tula Pink and I only have a FQ of it so when it is gone, my blocks will be done!
My crocuses are starting to show their bright colours this past week.
The bees are starting to buzz. These flowers are covering my witch hazel bush.
Finn likes to supervise the neighbourhood from his perch on the couch. He keeps us informed about dog walkers, cars going by, delivery vans and the arrival of the mail. It's a big responsibility but he is up for it.
I will link up with Kathy and the Slow Sunday Stitchers in the morning.
when you start to get the flowers you know spring really is coming!ReplyDelete
Your stitchery is super sweet. Love the colours. Finn is such a cutie and a good boy advising you of all the comings and goings in the street.ReplyDelete
Oh look at that......the bees are buzzing and the flowers are blooming at your place. How exciting for you! Your cross stitch does have a Scandinavian look about it. It is lovely. Your HuRTy ruler sounds terrifying. =) What you can do with it looks fascinating, though. I will have to follow the links.ReplyDelete
cute, cute bunnyReplyDelete
Finn is doing a good job guarding you against postmen and the like! Bunny is very scandi, quite a few of her patterns are like that. And the colours are gorgeous. Sarah quilting by the sea.ReplyDelete
Your embroidery is very pretty!ReplyDelete
Fin looks like he takes his job very seriously! Your crocus photos are beautiful - I'm always so happy to see the crocuses when they finally bloom. I like the HRTs - have never made any. The Tula Pink print is fun!ReplyDelete
Beautiful embroidery, and gorgeous crocus photos. Finn is so adorable!ReplyDelete
Spring has sprung in your garden. I'm pleased that Finn takes his checking out the neighbourhood duties so seriously, he looks like a soldier on guard duty! Pretty cross stitch, it's certainly moving well along.ReplyDelete
I love that sweet bunny stitchery.....and Finn of course. I haven't heard about that ruler before. I need to look into it. Do you find it helpful?ReplyDelete
Lovely cross stitch and beautiful photos ... :) PatReplyDelete
