embroidery progress

I have the five little stitcheries from Jenny of Elefantz finally finished.  A friend lent me a pattern for four others that were the right size that i could add to it, as i was searching for quilt ideas.  So they are almost done. I bought some pretty material yesterday so have made a start at putting some blockes togther.  Here are most of the little stitcheries for you to see, and my first two blocks.  it will be a simple idea; just nine log cabin squares, sashed with something that I am yet to decide on and then hung on the wall.

I wasn't sure last night about my choice of fabric but this morning it seems to have come together (with some help from a friend; thanks!!!). Do you ever just want someone else to look at something with fresh eyes and give it an opinion?  I asked DH to look last night but his opinion was that none of the fabrics actually matched anyway!!
I think it should come together really nicely. Mind you, the first block was pulled out twice; once because i decided my strips were way too wide.  Now they should go together quickly.

Please excuse the photo quality; it is very dark and dreary here today so getting nice photos is difficult.


  1. Very pretty Karyn, will wait to see it finished. Hope you are well and not blown away



  2. So sweet Karyn. Laurel

  3. They are absolutely glorious Karyn, such soft, sweet colours, and you are on a winner with the log cabin framing. I think it will be beautiful when all together. Little lesson learnt - don't trust the hubby's opinion!! You must trust your own ability more, it's there, believe me.

  4. LOL!! Lesson learned I hope!!!!
