Take It Further February - Day 3

It was a very cold windy day here yesterday. We went out for breakfast, stopped at Borders bookstore and came home. I spent the rest of the day stitching:

Take It Further February Block

As you can see, I have all the seams embroidered now and I've started beading.

I think the Apollo 13 logo will fit in the top right-hand corner. I'll print it up on an inkject fabric sheet and then I'll applique it on and then add some pretty trim around it.

We watched Apollo 13 yesterday with Tom Hanks. It really was amazing how they got home. I still say they had angels watching over them. I think it's odd too how this was the first thing that popped into my head when I was reading Sharon's post on the February concept. I'm not sure why that incident stood out in my mind but I never would have thought of an Apollo 13 block had it not been for the Take It Further Challenge. I think when the year is over, I'm going to have an amazing quilt to put to together!

In other news, I've received several messages asking where to purchase Waste Canvas. I have 2 online sources for you:

123 Stitch carries all 3 sizes of Waste Canvas from both Charles Craft & Zweigart. Here is the direct link to that page.

Also, Welcome Stitchery, my local needlework shop carries it and they will do mail order. I don't see it listed in their online catalog so you may have to email for info on it but I do know that they carry it.

Pam, I"m following your block and it is just gorgeous. Dumb question! Bt using the waste canvas, when you remove it, does it make your stitches loose and distorted? Debbie

Your block is just beautiful, of course! It looked wonderful before you started beading, and I might have been tempted to leave it there. Now that you've added some beads, it definitely makes a difference.


Your skills are amazing, its a thrill to see the progress you make in embellishing the seams.Very beautiful.
