It's my day in the Ho Ho Ho Blog Hop
THANK YOU ladies ...you are the best!!
Let's get today's HO HO HO parade of Christmas projects started...
be prepared to be inspired...
Quilt n Queen***this is me***
Michelle Ridgway's Rag-Tag Stitchin' embroidery designs.
The fabrics I used are Lynette Anderson's by Lecien.
I used a combination of Scandinavian Christmas and Christmas Fun.
Lynette's new Christmas line is called Candy Cane Angel and I luv it too.
It's coming soon to Crazyquiltgirl Fabric Shop. You can find Christmas Fun
at Crazyquiltgirl Fabric Shop now.
I think this tote bag is as cute as can be....
The pattern is O' Christmas Tree Tote Bag and
the embroidery thread is Presencia 8 wt color no. 1906
The next project is using Michelle's Skates for Hire pattern.
Instead of making the pillow like her pattern
I made a message board...and I luv it.
You can find my tutorial on making a message board on the Moda Bake Shop.
...I do have a snowman hanger some where...I just can not put my hands on it.
As you can see...I just couldn't stop embroidering...
here is a peek of more stitcheries ready to make into more projects.
The fabric for the embroidery background are Moda Muslin Mates,
Falling Snow Muslin and Snowflakes Muslin
and a closeup of Mr Meltin' the Mitten Mender using Aurifil 12 wt #2735
and Mr. Meltin' stitched in red using Aurifil 12 wt no. 2260
Skates for Hire is stitched with Aurifil 12 wt color no 2260.
I stitched 3 of Skates for Hire blocks...I just couldn't stop.
The three blocks on the back of the park bench are also from Rag-Tag Stitchin'.
Michelle made it into a wall hanging, with the blocks stacked on top of each other.
I am making a table runner with the blocks side by side.
The picture is minus the outer boarder....the good news
the outer borders are on now...it's quilting time.
I used 2 strands of Valdani color no. M43 for the table runner.
I'm also working on 2 tea towels...they are traced and partially stitched.
I used the free pattern found on Michelle's blog.
It's called Winter Mate, a free download on her sidebar.
