Garden Steps : Block #11

Hello !!

I finished stitching the Garden Steps Block #11 yesterday...and here is the result.  For this block it's a butterfly!!

 I used  a lot of chain, satin, and back stitch with French knot stitch for stitching the butterfly.  Among the 11 blocks that I've stitched, this is the only block that I used three colors of thread.

Having this Block done, it means the Garden Steps Quilt Along is coming towards the end with only one more block left ... Block #12.  
Till next time ... Happy Stitching to everyone!!

the Louisa Bag

Hello Everyone!!

Today I am  sharing my finished sewing project during the weekend ... the Louisa bag, latest pattern by Clover and Violet.  I feel so happy when being asked by Jennie to test the pattern for Clover and Violet.  Here is the finished  bag.

The inside of the bag, with two pockets.

The outside of the bag comes with a side pocket at both side with ties.

I used Velcro for the bag closure in replace of a magnetic snap since I don't have one in my stock.

As a whole I really have fun sewing it, I would say that Clover and Violet patterns are easy to follow.

 As like other patterns that I've sewn before,the instruction is easy to understand. Other patterns that I have sewn before are the Emma Clutch and the Anne handbag.

Happy Sewing!!

June New FO

Hi Everyone!!

I've miss to share my May New FO and to ensure that I did not miss the June month I've drafted this post earlier. I did a lot of sewing of bags and stitching during this month. My 1st new FO for the month of June is  this Anne handbag.  The pattern was a giveaway prize that I've won at Clover & Violet.

Second handbag that I've sewn was this Weekend handbag.

I joined new quilt Along hosted by Quilting Gallery - Beginner's Quilt Along. Here are all the three blocks that I've finished in the month of June.

This is my progress with my Garden Steps quilt Along.  We are already at Block nine, and here are the latest block that I've done in the month of June.

Crochet Along

Hi Everyone!


That's right...another crochet along for me. I just can't help it.  I love both sewing and crocheting and when I stumble upon this crochet along at LMS  immediately I jump in.  I will use Ruby and California Girl fabrics from my stash for this project.  This is some of my Ruby fabric which I have cut into 5" square for this project.

 The first post  about the Fusion Blanket Crochet Along will start tomorrow at Little Miss Shabby.  If you're interested to join you are still not too late to get your supply.   Head over to LMS to get the details.

Happy Sewing and Crocheting!!
