One thing leads to another....

I did some stitching on fabric today.
Of course, there was a little batting and backing involved!
All because....

I bought a sketch pad!
And SKETCHES just AREN'T DONE...
Until they're done...
IN STITCHES!!!

  4. It's fun to translate sketches to thread. Did you trace it on first or do it free hand? I love it with the blues.

  5. This post brought back some memories for me. We used to live not too far from the 'Ball jar museum' They have a couple of videos on the website that you might find interesting. http://www.indianafoodways.com/index.php/component/content/article/11.html

  10. One year I made a jar quilt for my mom using fruit and vegetable fabrics. A friend quilted it for me and wrote jar names on each..similar to your sketch. Every jar had a different brand written on it...so fun, just like yours, Beth!
