Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Hello, October.

Posted on | October 8, 2022 | 6 Comments

Like everyone, I am a little shocked at how quickly the months are disappearing. Here it is October and I still feel like I am playing catch up. However, I do feel like I am getting back on track with some of my stitching.

I have completed the embroidery from a design by Kasia Jocquot and have turned it into a zipper pouch.

It has been a lovely project and I am tempted to do more of them.

There are no other finishes but I have been distracted by a few other projects.

These are blocks using the hidden wells design, but I am playing with the layout.

I am using up the last of my Leesa chandler fabric in green.

And here are a few of the other distractions I have found along the way.

And this one.

Of course the garden has kept us busy, too, but sometimes the wind can create a pleasant surprise.

The ornamental pears are full of blossom.

And the result of the wind blowing is a carpet that looks like confetti.

Unfortunately the wind and rain have damaged the azaleas. They were looking so pretty a week ago, but there is nothing I can do. Enjoy the blossom instead.

I hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Cheers, Karen

  • I love the pouch. Your handwork is amazing!!! I recently pulled out a Hidden Wells pattern too and was thinking about what I could do with it. Now I am even more excited about it.

    The embroidered pouch turned out beautifully Karen. I can certainly understand why you would want to make another one, or two! The Australian animals dressed in Hawaiian shirts and eating tropical fruit are just gorgeous! Happy distractions indeed!

  • Super cute zipper pouch, Karen! I love seeing all your distractions!!! And enjoy seeing your confetti carpet grass. It’s still spring where you live, so there’s time for things to make a comeback.

    Love all the blossom carpet! And yes, the year is flying by. You’ve got a nice selection of distractions happening.

  • Your embroidery pouch really turned out well! As usual your stitching is perfection. LOVE all the animals enjoying their fruit! They looks so pleased with themselves. And all the bits and pieces of pretty you’ve shown today. Sometimes you just have to idle your motor a little and let creativity decide what to do next.
