Embroidered Squirrel

I worked on Maxine's quilt for awhile yesterday but I must admit, I kind of started to feel bored. So I pulled out my vintage transfers and chose this little guy to stitch on:


I think he's a Laura Wheeler design. He's on a sheet with all different woodland animals. Anyway, I thought I'd stitch him with yellow & orange flowers. That would give this design an Autumn feel. Not that I'm in any hurry for Autumn!

I also decided that this coming weekend, I will be doing the foundation piecing on my peacock quilt:


I picked up 2 yards of muslin at WalMart today for this. Instead of doing a wholecloth quilt, I'll do the side panels and then the top & bottom borders separately. When I have everything stitched, I'll put it together. I think the side panels will fit on the 15 inch frame that Scott made for me a few years back and the top & bottom borders will have to be worked in my scroll frame. I really don't like the scroll frame but I don't know how else to do it. I dislike stitching in hand so that's probably my best bet.

For now, I'm heading up to Richmond where my showcase is to let the store owner know that I've decided to bring my things home. I'll go up there next week and get them. I'll also drop off the Tarot Card bags.

What a cute little guy. I think he will look lovely what ever colours you decide to use.
I'll be watching your peacock quilt with interest. I treated myself to a couple of books, but I'm also lapping up all the tips, advice and ideas I can find about quilting. You will post lots of pics won't you? You know I love to see them.

I agree with Loulee on the little guy. He's so cute. The peacock quilt is coming along nicely. Can't wait to see that finished. Keep up the great work Pam.

I like the squirrel, and the way he's progressing up above. What will become of him? What will you do with the things you bring home from your showcase store?

I'm anxious to see what you will be doing on the peacock quilt, because I can't quite picture it. I get the part about sides and top and bottom, but after that, I'm not sure. So I will wait for all to be revealed! LOL!
