If you have been following my blog lately you will have noticed that I have been concentrating on finishing UFO’s. Yes, these are those unfinished projects that seem to grow and grow and hang around much too long. Well, I am please to tell you that number two is finished and I am so excited about how it turned out.
First let me tell you that sometimes I just see a pattern that I go crazy with. I don’t know what I want to make out of it such as a quilt, pillow, or even frame it. In this case I am talking about a stitchery pattern by Crabapple Hill’s designs Halloween Thimble Bouquet. This pattern had to be made the minute I had my hands on it, but what to do with it after that. I thought about framing it as I don’t have enough pictures for the Halloween season; but…not sure. Finally it went to that dark place, all alone in the unloved stack of unfinished projects.
It was a couple of months later that I found a new designer Kristyne Czepuryk of Pretty By Hand. She had designed a pattern called the Farmhouse Parlour Quilt. That was it. It came to me, out of the dark areas of my brain. It will be a table topper!
Now with an idea, the topper was rapidly coming together. I was in full swing stitching away, only to be held up with the need to purchase a couple of pieces of fabric. After about three days it was done. Finished and I was in love. I can’t wait for Halloween!!!!
