Spring Purse Embellishing

I spent quite a bit of time stitching on this yesterday and as you can see, I painted the lace piece as well:

Spring Purse

I asked yesterday if anyone wanted to guess what the focal point will be. So far, I haven't received the correct answer. I won't reveal that now. I'll let you all keep guessing but I do expect to add that later today so you should find out what it is tomorrow. It's an usual thing to add to a crazy quilt.

I'll give you a couple of little hints. The object is quite specific to the season. Think Spring everyone! Think "new life"!

Spring Purse Continued......

I have all the seams stitched now so it's time to start embellishing!

Spring Purse

All of the seam treatments are from Volume 2 of my Elegant Crazy Quilt Seam Treatments
E Book
. Volume 1 is available here and Volume 2 will be released in late March.

I have a few chores to take care of and then I plan to spend the rest of the day stitching. I may paint that lace piece today too.

Does anyone want to guess what the focal point on this piece will be? It's not a pin and it's not something that will be embroidered on. It's an object.

Spring Purse

I did manage to start stitching on this:

Spring Purse

I'm sure I'll have time to work on it some more later.

Pansy Block

Just a quick update today before we head out for breakfast:

Pansy Block

I finished up on this little project yesterday. I'll make this into a little doorknocker too. It'll add some Spring to my living room!

Saturday, February 23, 2008

Thank you!!!

Hello everyone! First, I just have to say "thank you" to my readers who take the time to leave such lovely compliments for me on the projects I've done. I can't begin to tell you how happy I feel when I hear that you find inspiration from my stitching. It means so much to me! Thank you very much everyone!

I completed the stitching on my little "Good Luck Robin" design yesterday:

Shamrock Block

I just love St. Patrick's Day so I'll be keeping this little one for myself. I'll sew it into a doorknocker during the week sometime.

When I finished up that little project, I started on this one:

Pansy Block

Again, Kim stitched up the little pansy for me which is one of my "gift" designs:

Motif Pansy

If you would like to stitch this for one of your projects, click on the image to go to my Flickr site where you can download the large version.

Today will be another stitching day so I'll finish up on the pansy doorknocker and then perhaps work up a Comfort Cat Doll.

I have several larger projects on my list too but haven't decided on which one to do next. Allie asked me about manipulating Waste Canvas in order work the borders from my book around curves. I hadn't really thought about it until Allie suggested it. I have no clue how she does that wonderful curved piecing technique of hers. I asked her if she would consider piecing a block for me so I can give it a shot and she very kindly took the time to do so.

I have a good idea on how to manipulate the Waste Canvas and I think it'll work perfectly! That will be one of my next projects so I'll be posting a photo of the pieced block that Allie did for me in the very near future. As soon as I'm sure of what I'm doing, I'll offer that as a tutorial here.

I also am feeling the need to have a new purse. A Spring purse actually and I have one pieced already. I'll share that one soon too. It'll be a bit different than anything I've done before. I just have something really cool to sew onto it!

You may remember my January Blizzard purse. I have to tell you, I only used that one for about a week into January. With all the storms we've had this year and way more snow than we usually get, I just couldn't stand looking at it so I put it away. I've been using my Blackwork Peacock purse but pretty soon, I can start switching them around again. It just doesn't quite feel right to carry a purse with a bunch of flowers on it when there's 2 feet of snow on the ground!

Anyway, be sure to stay tuned for these upcoming projects. I'm sure you'll find them quite interesting and maybe get some more ideas for your projects!

Also, next Saturday is the first of March. Yah!!!!!!! Sharon will be announcing the concept and color palette for the Take It Further challenge which I have to tell you, I am so much enjoying! I haven't put my Apollo 13 block away yet. It's sitting on my Hoosier cabinet where I can see it each time I walk by. I never would have thought of such an interesting theme had it not been for Sharon's challenge. Needless to say, I'm quite excited to hear about the next concept.

We're planning on our Eagle weekend for next Saturday. We couldn't go last week due to weather conditions but so far, it looks like next weekend will be quite good for driving to Peoria, Illinois. The Bald Eagles hang out on the Illinois river during the Winter months. We'll spend the weekend with my in-laws, visit a few antique malls and see those gorgeous eagles! If our photos come out as well as they did last year, I'll share them here.

Last but not least for today, I wanted to share this with you:

Postcard From Jo in NZ

I received this beautiful fabric CQ postcard all the way from Jo in New Zealand! What a thrill it is to receive something from so far away! It arrived safely in perfect condition and I have it sitting here on my desk. Jo's stitching is perfect, isn't it? Jo, I know you're having computer issues but if you happen to be online somewhere, thank you so much!!!!

Well, that's my ramblings for today! Have a great weekend everyone. I know we're going out for breakfast in the morning but I'll try to post a photo of my finished little pansy block before we leave.

Floral "A" Block Continued.....

I did a bit more embroidery on this block yesterday and added some more beads:

Floral "A" Block

As you know, I have a bit of dilemma as to what to do with that hard corner at the bottom left of the "A". Allie suggested that I embroider a fan there but that just doesn't call to me.

Crazy quilting is of course an "abstract" artform. I've always thought of abstract art as something that exists in another dimension. A dimension which our physical eyes cannot see. It's the type of art where both the creator and the observer must use an intuitive sense to comprehend the piece.

For me, it's not just a matter of technique, color and composition. Yes, those are indeed necessary components but they are only tools so to speak.

What I'm really doing in my crazy quilting, is conveying a thought or a memory. Thoughts & memories are absolutely real but they exist in a realm outside of the material world. Our general term for that is "abstract". Again, in order to interpret the abstract world, one has to rely on their "feelings" in order to express their thoughts and memories.

You've probably noticed that in most cases, I start with a touch of realism and expand on it in a non-realistic way.

In this case, working off of that gorgeous floral "A" from Allie, my thought is that of Summer and it's vast array of bright colors found in a garden. That is certainly a cheery thought for me considering it's only 2 degrees outside right now!

In attempting to deal with that hard corner in the conventional way, trying different lace appliques and a few other little do-dad's that I have here, and finding that none of them visually suited my purpose, I reached deeper into my thoughts and feelings and memories of Summer. I remembered that not only do bright, cheerful flowers dominate the Summer landscape, but so do a variety of beautiful busy bugs!

When I start on a block, I'm not usually aware of the final result. I've always considered work on a crazy quilt to be a journey rather than a destination. Certainly, it's fun to arrive at the final work but the joy is in the creation for me, feeling my way through and around a block as it develops.

So, to get on with how I will soften that hard corner, I have decided to allow the perfect imperfections of nature take care of itself. Not all gardens are perfect (esp. mine) yet they are all beautiful and filled with living things, both seen and unseen. I have a nice collection of little bug pins that I can use to soften any area that isn't quite what I'd like it to be. I have a beautiful bee pin, a dragonfly and a butterfly. I'm sure one of them will work on that corner and I'm sure I'll be adding some other bugs here and there throughout the block. Of course, being a garden theme piece, this block must have a spider and web on it. Does anyone want to guess where I will put it?

Comfort Cats & Update On Floral "A" Block

I did some finishing yesterday on a few projects including these two little cat dolls for The Comfort Doll Project:

2 Cat Dolls

I don't know which one I love more! The yellow one is so bright and cheery but the green one so pretty with the purple embellishments! I'll package these up today and mail them to Pat later this week when I go to the Post Office again.

I also did some stitching yesterday on my Floral "A" block:

A Block

I tried every little appliqué I have and nothing seems to work to soften that hard corner at the bottom left of the "A". I have some ideas but want to do some more beading on the seam treatments before I start working on that area.

Take It Further February - Completed!

I finished up on my February Take It Further Challenge block yesterday:

Take It Further February Block Completed

Just to rehash the specifics of this block, Sharon's concept is "what are you old enough to remember". The first thing that popped into my head while I was reading Sharon's post on the February concept was the Apollo 13 space mission. I don't know why that stood out in my mind. I was 9 years old when that happened but I thought it would make for a unique block so I went with it.

While watching the Apollo 13 movie with Tom Hanks years later, I remembered thinking that surely, they must have had angels watching out for them. The little angel image with the earth behind them is from my collection of Victorian clip art.

I didn't use anything particularly special on this block. The blue trim on the top right is antique. I bought it a flea market last Summer. That's the probably the oldest thing on this block.

The Apollo 13 insignia had to be there for clarity. It's printed on inkjet fabric, appliquéd onto the block and then I added some pretty trim and beads around it. It was actually supposed to go in the top right-hand corner but I misjudged the size when I printed it and it didn't quite fit. That gave me the opportunity to add the comet there instead. The tail is stitched with 3 different sizes of metallic gold thread.

All seam treatments are from my "Elegant Crazy Quilt Seam Treatments" E-Book and that leads me to answer a few questions that were left for me in yesterday's post.

First, in reference to the photos I posted yesterday showing the waste canvas before & after stitching, Lynne asked, "Is there some reason why you use what appears to be a lot more canvas than you need to do the area?"

The answer to that question is that I had planned on stitching along both the top and bottom edges of the ribbon and then, after I had the waste canvas pinned to my block, I changed my mind. Usually, I leave about 1 inch of waste canvas on all 4 sides of the border the design.

Kathy asked, "How do you decide what size to make each design when you embellish a seam so that it fits and you don't have empty space at the end because there was not enough space for another motif?"

This is an excellent question but not an easy one to answer as there are several possible answers.
There is a formula for determining the height and the width of the charted borders and that is included in the book.

In some cases, I start stitching in the middle of a seam and just stitch as far as I can go on either side. In other cases, I start at one end and go as far as I can.

Notice the border to the right of the angels on this block:

Take It Further February Block

There is some empty space on either side of it. I started in the middle of the seam and just worked my way out on either side which gave me 3 repeats of the design. Had I started at one end, I probably could have gotten 4 in there. I honestly don't freak out over this. There are no mistakes in crazyquilting and should something turn out less perfect than what I would prefer, there is always a way to fix it or camouflage it. In this case, I used it as an opportunity for some button clusters. They fill in the gaps nicely without covering up the border.

Quite honestly, working with waste canvas and charted borders isn't all that different than free-handing your borders except that you will get perfectly sized and spaced stitches with the waste canvas. It's a matter of simply following the design on the chart and duplicating it on the block.

I hope this answers your questions. If anyone has more questions for me, feel free to post them here or send me an email and I will gladly address them.

Here are a couple of charted borders for you try:

Take It Further February - Day 5

I did some more beading on my February Take It Further Challenge block yesterday and I added the Apollo 13 Insignia:

Take It Further February Block

It didn't quite end up where I originally wanted it to be. I printed it on an inkjet fabric sheet but my judgment on size was a little off. It came out a bit larger than I had wanted and then it didn't fit in the top right corner.

I decided to sacrifice a bit of my stitching and put it on the top left corner which as it turns out, seems to work well. It looks like the angels are looking up at it.

For the top right hand corner, I decided to stitch a comet there. I'll add that later today.

Again, all of the seam treatments are from my E-book, "Elegant Crazy Quilt Seam Treatments":

Elegant Crazy Quilt Seam Treatments

The borders are worked with waste canvas and the book gives complete instructions for using this special technique.

Debbie asked me if I could post a photo of a seam treatment "in progress" with the waste canvas in place. Here you go Debbie:

Working With Waste Canvas 1

This photo shows the waste canvas in place before stitching.

Working With Waste Canvas 2

And this photo shows the waste canvas after stitching is complete. You can see I've started to pull the waste canvas threads out from under the stitches.

Click on the photos to see a larger version at my Flickr site.

I was also asked if pulling the waste canvas threads out distorts the stitches in any way. No, not at all. Just pull the threads horizontally across the fabric. Don't pull up on them and your stitches will be perfect!

Take It Further February - Day 4

I had a good couple of hours to stitch on my February Take It Further Challenge block yesterday and added quite a few more beads to it:

Take It Further February Block

I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to compliment my stitching. You're feeding my ego, you know! That can't be good! I'm really enjoying this project and the unusual theme of this block. I have some beautiful carved Mother Of Pearl buttons and I think I'll use one to represent the moon in the upper left-hand corner. The Apollo 13 logo will go in the upper right-hand corner.

Ginger sent me an email to let me know of another online source for Waste Canvas. She orders her Waste Canvas from Needle In A Haystack. Click here for the direct link.

Several of my readers have told me that Waste Canvas is available in other sizes than the ones I recommended. Yes, that it is true and I am aware of that but for stitching on crazy quilts, my recommendations are 8.5 count, 10 count and 14 count.

Waste Canvas in 6 count is too chunky looking for my tastes. Waste Canvas in 16 & 18 count is just suicide. I have used those sizes to do cross stitch but I have hard time seeing it so I wouldn't recommend them for crazy quilting. In all honestly too, your stitches will be so small, I doubt you'd be happy with them. The choice however is yours. If you want to give them a try, have a ball! But for me, I stick with 8.5, 10 & 14 count Waste Canvas for my borders.

Is It Spring Yet?

As my husband promised me, the moment he could get his hands on some Spring flowers, he filled my garden window with them:

Spring Flowers

He said there will be more this coming week. As you know, I deal with Seasonal Affective Disorder. I was actually doing pretty well until we got dumped on with a foot of snow last week. This has been a very cloudy Winter, with snow almost every other day. And yes, it's snowing now too. Thankfully, March is only a couple of weeks away.

Speaking of March, I've already made some Shamrock cards:

Shamrocks

Again, these are 3-D although it's a bit hard to tell in this photo. Click on the image to go to my Flickr site where you can see a larger version. I really enjoy making these. I usually do the cutting while my printer is running. And, it's the perfect excuse to use lots of glitter! I'll be doing some Easter and birthday cards next.

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.

Take It Further February - Day 2

I worked on a few more of the seams yesterday on my February block for Sharon's Take It Further Challenge:

Take It Further February Block

I'm using borders from my E-book that have a "star-like" feel to them. If you remember, Sharon's concept is "what are you old enough to remember" so my theme is Apollo 13.

If you're interested in creating beautiful borders like the ones on this block you can find the book in my Etsy shop:

Take It Further February - Day 1

I started stitching on my Take It Further February block yesterday:

Take It Further February Block

I'm planning on using seam treatments with a "star" feel to them. What you see here is from my book.

I'd like to thank Coral-Seas for pointing me in the direction of the Apollo 13 logo:

Apollo 13 Insignia

I haven't figure out yet how to incorporate it into this block. I need to look at it a bit more. If I can't figure out how to make it work, I'll embroidery Apollo 13 on the block somewhere.

Take It Further Challenge - February

In trying to distract myself from the blizzard yesterday which dumped a foot of snow us, I spent the day sewing up a few new blocks. Among other things, I pieced my February Take It Further Challenge Block:

Take It Further February Block

As I mentioned last week, Sharon's concept for this month is "what are you old enough to remember". While reading Sharon's post, the first thing that popped into my head was the Apollo 13 Space Mission in 1970. I was 9 years old. Years later, while watching the movie with Tom Hanks, it occurred to me that they must have had angels watching over them.

I decided to use this Victorian image of 2 little angels with the earth behind them as a focal point. It was suggested to me that I try to find an image of the Apollo 13 logo patch. That's a great idea to get my theme across without making it too obvious. I have to make all my blocks for this Challenge work together as I plan to sew them into a quilt at the end of the year.

I'll find that image, print it on inkjet fabric and then I'll appliqué it somewhere on this block with some pretty trim around it. I'll be starting on this later today so stop back for updates!

Oh! I'm also working my blocks with Sharon's color palette for each month!

A Few Finishes

I finished up a few things yesterday on my sewing machine. First, my little red cat doll for Cathy D. is ready:

Cathys Cat

Next, I sewed up the little band sampler that I used on the cover of my book into a doorknocker:

Band Sampler

Last but not least, Kim stitched the Valentine Ornament design that I did twice. Once for herself and once for me. I finished them both exactly the same:

Valentine Ornaments

Thank you Kim!

Finally for today, I'm going to sew up the Sunflower Purse and get that finished. I also want to sew up my February Take It Further block. I added a dark blue cloud background to the little angels that I plan to use as a focal point. Remember, the concept is "what are you old enough to remember?" The first thing that came to my mind is the Apollo 13 Space Mission:

Angels Among Us 2

I noticed this morning that I'm having some trouble with my Corel Photopaint software. My brushes have disappeared and I don't know what to do. I hope I don't have to uninstall it and then reinstall it.

Words

I've often admired bloggers who are really good at taking photographs. Not just any photos but the type of photos that have an artistic flair. The kind of pictures found in the Somerset Studio magazines:

Mags

I have to admit, although I love to look a pretty images in magazines and on blogs, I never really did understand the use of "words" in this type of artwork. What is up with that? Is the subject matter of the created work not enough? Does a single word really emphasize the feelings & thoughts of the creator? Does one single word really take the created piece to some higher level of comprehension & understanding?

For me, words get in the way. You may have noticed that there are times when I will post a photo of my stitching and since I feel that my work speaks for itself, I can't find much to talk about in regards to it. So I keep my post short and sweet.

On the other hand, there are times when I just can't stop typing!!! And I'm sure there are times, when my dear husband, after 1/2 an hour of listening me ramble on and on, probably feels the need to run shouting & screaming into the woods!

While looking through these new magazines this morning, I pondered the use of words. I thought about my love of Classical music and the reason I like it. There are no words. And yet Mozart speaks to me on a level that I could never describe in words.

I have a terrible time picking out greeting cards at the Hallmark store. Most Birthday cards and Greeting cards are just too wordy. Mushy poems and overly sweet sentiments kind of gag me. Why don't they all just simply say, "Happy Birthday"? or "I'm Thinking Of You"? That's why I've been making my own greeting cards.

For the most part, I'm a quiet person. I keep to myself, I think a lot and I create things, without the use of words. Words are quite inadequate to truly express ourselves.

I will leave you with my attempt at a creative photo, and trust me, there are no words to describe it. Perhaps this one could use a word:

Take It Further Challenge - February

Today is the 1st of February. On one hand, I am feeling terribly annoyed by the current weather conditions (I have so had my fill of snow for one season) and on the other hand, I'm excited because Sharon announced the concept and color palette for the February Take It Further Challenge!

Sharon's chosen concept for this month is "What Are You Old Enough To Remember?" At age 46, I am old enough to remember all sorts of interesting things. A regular joke between Scott and I, usually when the Direct TV bill comes, is that I remember when television and water were free! Ha, ha, ha!

Strangely though, as I was reading Sharon's post for today, the first thing that popped into my mind was the Apollo 13 Mission in 1970. Being that I was born in 1961, I can't image why that particular incident came to mind above all other things but it did so I decided to go with it.

At the time of the mission, I was only 9 years old so I don't remember having any opinions on it. I just remember it dominating the news for awhile. When the movie with Tom Hanks came out a few years back, I remember thinking that surely, there were "angels among them".

Since I will be sewing my 12 challenge blocks into a quilt at the end of the year, I had to think about how I'm going to tie them all together. Another challenge in and of itself for me! Certainly, a photo of the Apollo 13 rocket will not work with my January Victorian block:

January Take It Further Challenge Complete

However, my thoughts of angels watching over them while sitting through the movie reminded me of this image from my collection of Victorian clipart:

Angels Among Us

I will be using this image as the focal point for my February block but I haven't figure out yet how I'm going to get the Apollo 13 idea in there. Perhaps I'll embroider the words and date on the block or maybe, by the time I get it sewn up, I'll have figured out a better way to subtly convey my theme. Or maybe, the angels with the earth behind them, looking up at the moon are enough. All I know for sure at this moment is that this will give me the opportunity to use a ton of glitter on it! And ya'll know I love my glittery stuff!

Again, I will be also be working with Sharon's color palette:

February Palette DMC Floss Colors

I matched up the DMC floss colors to Sharon's palette, using both a printout and the image on my monitor. These are the closet matches I could get and I am quite pleased as they are pretty darn close! Please keep in mind that printers and monitors will vary in their color displays.

So, that's my plan for my February block. I would love to hear what ya'll think!

In other news, I had a few questions on my Sunflower Purse:

Sunflower Purse

I was asked how I attached the sunflower to the block. The answer is, I popped the center out of the sunflower, sewed the sunflower onto the block by hand and then glued the center back in place with E6000 Jewelry Glue.

I forgot to mention in my post yesterday that there is a little story behind this sunflower. If you remember, this purse is a custom order. The girl who ordered it asked for a burnt orange sunflower. Had I looked for one back in October when she asked me for this, I probably could have found one quite easily. But I was busy with gifts and other things at the time and knew I wouldn't get to this purse until January. By the time I went looking for a burnt orange sunflower, they had become elusive! So I bought the only color I could get and that was the traditional yellow color.

I knew at the time that I could paint it. It's just a silk sunflower so I pulled out my Lumier paints by Jacquard and I painted it with the copper color. It's not exactly burnt orange but at least it leans more towards what she wanted.

I was also asked if I would post a photo when I get it sewn up. Absolutely! I always post photos of my completed projects. Oh, and the little bee, which I hated to part with, is a vintage pin that I found at an antique shop back at Thanksgiving. I loved him but he worked perfectly on this purse so I used him. And the bee had to be there because the girl who ordered the purse is named Melissa. That name means, "Honey Bee".

Since it'll be a few days before I can sew up my February block, I'll start a small project to work on over the weekend:

Cathys Cat

Cathy D. was kind enough to agree to stitch up my ornament design for the 2008 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue. My ornament for this year is a Biscornu and since I've never finished one and it has to be perfect, I asked Cathy if she would do the model for me. In exchange, Cathy asked if I would make her one of my little cat dolls in red so that will be my next project.

Finally, I'm pleased to tell you that my E-Book, "Elegant Crazy Quilt Seam Treatments" is complete!

Elegant Crazy Quilt Seam Treatments

The book contains 72 charted borders plus 9 charted Feather Stitch borders and complete directions for stitching perfectly sized and spaced crazy quilt seam treatments with Waste Canvas like I do.

I just have to upload the final pages and then when Allison Aller returns from her trip this week, she will review it for me, making sure my instructions are complete and clear and then I will release it.

I'm very, very excited about this book! So excited to be able share my technique and borders with other crazy quilters that I have already started work on Volume 2 which will be a supplement volume focusing mainly on more border designs.

Well, I guess that's it for today everyone!
