Crazy Marie Antoinette Quilt To Begin

I haven't been feeling well for the past few days.  I don't know if it's the medication balancing out again or what.  I'm so tired of trying to figure it out and trying to describe it.  I can definitely feel the depression but I don't care to increase the medication.  It just means that I'd have to deal with more withdrawals when I can cut back again.

I decided that now is the perfect time to start on my Winter project.  I pulled out block #1 of my Marie Antoinette quilt and I will start stitching on this today:

If you're new to my blog, I have Seasonal Affective Disorder and have found that a Winter project, helps me to get through the nasty Winter months until Spring.  This quilt has 9 blocks, all featuring an image of Marie Antoinette.  I love the pinks and other soft pastel colors.  There will be loads of lace and glittery things on this quilt.  Tons of flowers and vines.  I have some special do-dads that my friend Cathy K. sent to me that I've been saving for this project.  One is a little Eiffel Tower charm!
 I finished stitching up on this crazy quilt piece yesterday:

I'm going to try to get this piece in the frame today and then I'll add it to the shop.

Another finish is this little cat doll:

This was a custom order.  I really love making these little cats.  I think I'll sew up a few more this week and just have them ready for when I feel like stitching on one.

A few more things that I added to the shop are more of my glittered bottlebrush trees:

And here are a few of mom's newest items:

All are available here.

Don't forget about the drawing for my Crazy Quilt Snowflake Ornament.  Details can be found here on this post.

I guess that's my news for today folks.  I'll be posting regular updates of my Marie quilt as I work on it so stop by often for that.

I'll leave you with some muffins that I made the other day:

I think the Marie quilt will be fabulous. Those colors make you smile to look at them. The block you just finished stitching is something else. I love the pearl spider and all the other little critters on it as well. Mom's tussie mussies are great as always.
Bottle brush trees take me back to the 60's.

Pam, I hope you feel better really soon. I look forward to seeing the progress on the Marie quilt!

I just got back from my show in New Jersey and the leaves up there were amazing! I am SO tired!

I love the look of the quilt just laying there with the images on top. It is going to be so beautiful when you have it all embellished. The kitty is so cute! Hope you have a wonderful week and get to feeling better soon. Hugs, Kim

Hi Pam. Sorry to hear you are not well again. I do hope your quilts can get you through this dark period. Lets think about the light at the end of the tunnel, and the blossoming of spring.

I love looking at your pieces. I wish I lived close by so I could see them properly. My little cat doll I purchased from you this year is so very pretty. I would love to be able to purchase a few more for my mum, but that will have to wait.

I can't believe it's almost Christmas again! Gee the year has flown. I am making Christmas cards this year, so I have started that last weekend. Better get cracking I think!

All the best to you and your mum xxx

THat's going to be another pretty quilt project, Pam. What's your source for the MA prints? Guess what I found? Got out our Halloween decorations and found your neat card from last year! Thanks again!

Wow! You and your mom have been busy! So many beautiful projects!

I love, love your MA quilt...that is going to be a gorgeous creation! Can't wait to see more!

I look forward to seeing more of your work on the Marie A. CQ. Your bottlebrush trees are darling, too. Hope your meds "settle in."

Cathy K said...

I can’t wait to see your Marie CQ come together!! And I think I’d like to do some of your kitties for Christmas presents, too! I’ve always loved yours.

So sorry to hear you’re having problems with the depression. We’ve had a lot of sunshine this fall, so I’m doing OK so far. It really helps that Bruce and I go walking for an hour three times a week. It won’t be long before I have to switch my exercise routine to the indoors. Ugh. Take care of yourself - I don’t know how you accomplish as much as you do! Love & hugs, Cathy

Your muffins look so yummy! Love the new things in the shop. Marie A. looks like the perfect project for this year. I know each block will look beautiful jeweled and dressed when you are finished.

Pam you are one amazing lady. I am loving that Marie Antoinette quilt. I am very glad I know you. You are so wonderful and I hope you have very few difficult days this winter. Hugs Anne

Great project for the winter Pam - I know you love Marie A. so you will enjoy working on it, which will help with the SAD. Really hope those meds soon decide to straighten up!
