Stitch by Stitch

Just a short post tonight. Got in early (well, earlier!) with my Capricorn Quilts BOM block this month. Remembering that the theme of the quilt is 'quilters blessings', I'm sure there are many stitchers who relate to the sentiment of this months block. I never seem to have enough hours to work on all the projects I would like to complete.

Oliver managed to get his fluffy white tummy into this shot!

Started Rose's Summer Garden Table Runner last night. I'm a big fan of redwork so thought I'd do a redwork version of this design. It will be nice and relaxing to work on while 'watching' TV in the evenings.

Z and S Fabrics had a sale recently - this little bundle arrived in the mail box yesterday. I love the fabric they used for the bow - a nice little usable bonus.


  1. Your stitcheries look great..
    Z&S great place to shop and their presentation is very good.....

  2. Oh sweetie, i looooooove seeing my design in Redwork!!! Im loving red more and more.....wow, i cant wait to see this finished!!! Its exciting, im happy dancing!!!! lol
    Hugs xxx

  3. Oh, how true the saying in your BOM. Never enough hours in the day for all the sewing projects I want to do!
    I like the redwork tablerunner you're working on. It's looking very lovely.

  4. Your stitcheries are wonderful! Love the table runner you're working on.

  5. Hi Christine,

    I just love your stitcheries! The redwork is going to be beautiful when you are done. I love ZandS fabrics, they are one of my favorite online shops.

    By the way, you have been tagged by me. Check out my post for the rules.

  6. Oh, you're on track with Bea's BOM! I'm still way behind... your block looks great!

    And Rose's summer garden stitchery looks great in redwork - I really look forward to seeing how this will look all finished!

    Take care and have fun!

  7. Cute stitcheries. We can always wish for a few more ours pr day, I would realy have loved it.
    Very nice redwork, I love redwork too.....
    I have just finished a tablerunner and will poblish it later on. Every time I see a new Red or white fabric I just must have it. Be happy !

  8. Hello, I am charmed with your blog and all the things that you do. Would I like to know how you manage to spend(pass) the drawing to the fabric to embroider the redwork? Do you use some special paper(role) for copy the drawing? I wait that with the translator on line manage to understand my question, thank you very much for everything what you show us

  9. Other one asks: the next week I travel to New York for vacations, I would like that someone was informing me about some shop where to buy fabrics of patchwork and schemes of cross stitch as the Blackbird Designs. Thank you very much

  10. I love the redwork stitchery. I'm really tempted to make one myself, but I'm still learning to quilt and too often in my life I bounce from one thing to another, and I don't really learn anyone one thing properly. So, for now I'm sticking to quilting. Next year I may tackle embroidery!
    Wish me luck sticking to my guns!!

  11. Great job on the Quilter's Blessing BOM...I'm still finishing the March block.

  12. I really love your stitching - I wish I had more time to add that to my hobbies! Darn job gets in the way . . .

  13. The redwork you are doing is such a pretty design. Can't wait to see more of it as it progresses.

  14. Your redwork piece is looking great, I love how striking it looks. Those extra little details makes the bundles so worth while, I'd love some of the blue they used to tie the bundle. Any ideas what line it's from?

  15. Oh, I missed that sale-I love Z & S!
    That stitchery looks just like me, there aren't enough hours!!!! Tracey
