"Me Jane" is the title of my Bra for a Cause. Made from tea-dyed Warm & Natural batting, pebble stitched quilting using tear-away stabilizer, hand stitched to bra and cork beads embellishing the front. I hand sewed batting to the straps (the entire bra has to be covered)It also needed to be tacked to a padded hanger which was the town search of the week! While failing to find them at our 2nd destination, I ran into my friend Sharon and she suggested Bed Bath & Beyond and YES they had them. I had to spend $9.99 for a set of six but what the heck...I got one! The back of the bra. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I won this wonderful collection of CQ fabrics & embellishments from a monthly challenge in the . Yahoo group! What a treasure of bits! One can never have enough CQ stash.
I have done a little stitching on Colleen's CQ block. It's got a Cold Winter's Night theme. I traced a motif from The Ultimate Design Source Book for Crafters..from the Angels & Fairie section, onto tracing paper. I pin in place and stitch over the lines, then pull off the paper (takes a while since some paper gets trapped under your stitches) and voila! your design looks near perfect! I stitched her in 3 different kinds of white thread and I am adding a cool blue metallic now. When she is done I will post the picture.
- Handing over $1000.00 to get my Trailblazer back was mostly nauseating.
- 8.6 lbs so far! Weight Watchers works.
- I figured out how to put a site counter on my blog. I was chatting with Beth at the quilt show last weekend. I read her blog. She told me about sitecounter.com.
- The luminous red maple tree leaves are my favorite.
