Shades of Blue for Charlotte

Decision finally made I am going with shades of blue.....not a colour I usually work with but since finishing Winter Village I thought I would try the blues again.
It was all the more fun deciding on colours as Margaret, Anna and Sue are joining in with this project so lots of laughter and fun with fabrics, techniques, tools, etc. To begin our journey into Floral Vase Applique we kicked off with a fun high tea setting . Seven decided he is not interested in this project so chose to have a nap enjoying the sun through the window.

Decisions, Decisions ,Decisions New Project

It’s been awhile since my last blog so hopefully I won’t bore you with lots of photos.

Now to decide on the colour scheme...........

A lot harder than I thought to choose a colour scheme.

When Eddie isn’t on the couch with me he is with his  buddy Seven, even if it means scratching around until he flips his bed onto Seven. We are so happy to still have Eddie with us, he is bloated and only goes on very short walks but he is still happy and has lots of good days.

Winter Village

Winter Village by Edytar Sitar Finished...now to decide what to do about the quilting, Leonie ? Hehe....

Happy stitching.......

Friday night I joined in for FNSI with the lovely Wendy and friends while working on a Marie Suarez stitchery. If you would like to see what others worked on  go here.

While I was stitching Eddie (black and white) who hates being on his own slept next to Seven. We are counting our blessings with Eddie he is still coping with his kidney and liver problems and managing without his heart murmur medication which caused the liver and kidney damage.

Thank you Wendy for hosting FNSI to see what others did go here. go here 
Friday morning I began working on sewing my snowflake cutouts on Winter Village . They are very fiddly and time consuming to sew down, only a couple left for next time.

Friday Night I finished knitting the neck band of my jumper and began sewing it together finishing it off Saturday morning.

Eddie checking out the softness of the jumper.

Slowly finishing off some projects makes for a happy quilter,sewer,knitter etc....haha 😊🌺
