Animals Everywhere.

Posted on | January 24, 2017 | 8 Comments

I am still not sure about what is working with my blog and what is not, but here I go regardless.

Today’s theme appears to be animals – purely by accident.

First up, Michelle’s lovely patterns have been turned into a cushion. It was going to be a banner but I liked this better.

I am currently working on others from the pattern.

Moving on to another animal grouping.

This is a design from Natalie at The Birdhouse.

I had finished the stitchery a while ago but hadn’t stitched it into a wall hanging.

It needed a small flange to frame the stitchery and then some quilting was added.

Now it is ready for next Christmas.

And to finish off the animal theme for today, here are the blocks I have been busy making.

So far 80 in all. I will play with the layout a little more then add all the sashing.

The block is a free design from Elizabeth Hartman.

The tennis watching has been interesting with so many top seeds being knocked out. Glad it is not me out there playing in the heat.

I do enjoy the air conditioner at home. Have a good week.

Cheers, Karen

    I love those Aussie Christmas animal stitchery. It make such a fun cushion. The blue thread you’ve used in your wall hanging almost makes it look like an ink drawing. And what a burst of rainbow beauty in the last quilt!! I don’t know how those tennis players can play in the heat. I get hot just sitting and sewing. They’re like super people!

    The blue variegated thread you’ve used in the stitchery is very effective Karen! It gives a lovely look to your wall hanging.
