Wishing everyone an early HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
As I posted earlier, Santa brought me a new sewing machine! I decided on the quilt I want to make, and purchased the last of the necessary supplies yesterday. I have a bunch of beautiful fabric given to me from my husband's family...when his mother passed. She was a beautiful quilter and I was honored to have her stash given to me. I've wanted to create something in her honor since receiving the stash, so I made some memory quilt hangings for all of the brothers and sisters...but now I'm going to make something bigger.
Here's a picture of my starting supplies:
I've been getting things prepared for January...so I started gridding out my HAED Freebie SAL - SK Blue Moon
She'll be worked on 18 count aida in the color "bisque"....it's sort of a light pink-taupe color. Found the fabric on ebay for 2 bucks and the size fit perfectly!! The SKs (story keeps) are meant to be book marks when done on the smaller count fabric, but since I'm working it on the larger 18 count, it's going to be very long and not very wide....so I had to find the right fabric to work it on.
The first page for this SAL (stitch a long) should arrive around January 6th, so I finished getting all my thread pre-cut and now I just need to finish gridding and I'm ready to go!!
Cathedral has begun! :) This is going to be my largest project ever and I finally starting some stitches.
I'm so excited for 2012! I have a ton of projects on the list in my head...that consist of cross stitching, sewing and crochet/knitting. What projects do all of you have on your 2012 list to do? I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone accomplishes in the new year!!
