Monday Making

This week I pulled out an older embroidery set of printed blocks
that I have had in the "to do" pile for a long time.

This is the perfect portable project!
I brought it along on a short trip this week.
I took two small printed blocks, 
thread, needle, embroidery hoop and small scissors.
(There are about 10 identical blocks to embroider)

During my little trip, I was able to almost finish ONE block.

As I stitched, I thought about how nice some 30's fabrics would look with it.
And guess what??
I happen to HAVE some of those reproduction prints!
(what DON'T I have...LOL)

As I stitch I will think about quilt settings.
There are always HAPPY thoughts when I'm stitching!

What are YOU making this week???


  1. What a sweet little cross stitch block.

  2. I had those prints a while back. They will go very nicely with your cross-stitch. :)

  3. Emboridery is such a relaxing past time. Love the delicated colors in your block. Have a very laid back and relaxed Labor Day.

  4. Can't wait to see what you make. I have some old x-stitch stamped pansy quilt squares I picked up from the thrift store. Maybe I should dig those out and work on them.

  5. Ah, the to-do pile! These are lovely and embroidery is relaxing and portable. I like to keep my hands busy while traveling or watching tv- so these are just right. Those fabrics are just right, too.

  6. Beth, as embroidery is my first love, I really like these squares and of course, the pairing with 30's prints will be ideal.

  7. I have some of those, but I didn’t know what to use with them or what design. Cannot wait to see yours!

  8. Very pretty! Your fabrics will look wonderful with the stitching. Amazing what we can dig up out of our stashes.:)

  9. A hand project is a MUST HAVE in my book. I cannot believe how much I am able to accomplish by keeping some around.

    Your blocks will take some time to do but will be so worth it. The 30s fabrics will be perfect!
