Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Summer Embroidery.

Posted on | January 22, 2019 | 19 Comments

I often notice that bloggers tend to get very busy with other things when the Summer months are here. It makes sense as there is so much to do outside and we have to make the most of those lovely days.

I am in that category as I have only posted once since the new year began. Lots of time in the garden picking corn, berries, apricots and tomatoes. And of course it is a great to to spend catching up with friends and family.

But I can say that I have been stitching when the time allows, mostly when there is a good match on TV at the tennis – The Australian Open.

I have been working on some small but delightful embroideries by Wendy Williams called Travel Threads. They are a collection of about 20 different designs that are 6 inches in size. I have been working on three of them and they are in different stages of completion.

The bird block needs a few more french knots.

I think the wreath is just about finished.

And the caravan is only in the early stages.

I am planning to create a small vertical wall hanging with these three pieces.

When is has been too hot to be outside I have set up a big table and used it to baste three quilts. Perfect with the aircon going. We have another 40 degree day coming later this week so more inside time coming. That is when I really feel for the tennis players. How do they do it?

Have a lovely week.

Cheers, Karen
