Back Again!!

This Joyful World series is truly joyful!! April is no exception. I couldn't stop stitching it once I started!! Although it is still cold out, this spring scene put a smile on my face~   


One row down, two more to go!!!!


As I have some extra free time on my hand, I pulled my Whirl quilt out again. All the piecing parts are now one quilt top!!


Since I plan on using this as a blanket, I am thinking adding on a wider border to make it larger. I know I want a red border, but am also exploring more options! I think a trip to the fabric shop is in order!! 




Thanks for visiting~~ Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Another Small Finish!

Back again so soon?! Yes, with a small finish, too~ February of Joyful World is done! Love the blue flowers!!! I so admire the effort Snowflower Diaries has put in when designing these imagines. The animals are so vivid! 


Here are January and February together!! These animals are too cute!! I enjoyed stitching them very much!!


We do not have ducks in our community, but this bird just moved in. This one is still a youngster, we often can see it walking around our neighborhood. I think I just disturbed its nap when taking this photo. It does not look too happy....


Thank you again for visiting~

Back with More!!

Since I have my sewing machine out, I have made a lot of progress on my quilt this past week. I have finished piecing all the individual blocks!! Yay~ I find that it is kind of difficult to make the center point meet perfectly. I had to redo some of the blocks cause they were wayyyy off. Any tips on how to make perfect centers??


I laid out all the blocks to have a peek on how it will look in the end. It does kind of feel like looking through a kaleidoscope, doesn't it?


Sadly I will have to put this aside for this moment. Big work due date ahead meaning no time to quilt, plus I have to give my dining table back for dinning~ Hopefully I will be able to get back on this soon. Thanks for visiting~~

More Quilting~

Lately, I have taken over our dining table and been working on some quilting. There is so much piecing to do on this pattern!! Finally, I got one block pattern done!!



Still have another pile of pieces to work on, but I am happy to see some progress on this quilt. Maybe I can have it done by Christmas? Wishful thinking~

Yes! I am still here!!!

Can't believe it was March since I last post!!!! I do have a little achievement, finally after one year since I started, January of the Joyful World SAL is finished!! It was this cute little thing that drew me to this design, and I am glad to see it come to life on my linen~


Because I wasn't sure if my linen was large enough, I have actually started out by stitching all the border first. It was a dull process, I am glad that part was over!! 


I have modified the border a little bit to fit it on to my linen, I'm quite happy with the effect~


I hope the fun little animals will be able to keep me going!!! Until next time~

Finally, A Bit of Progress!!

Hello my friends,it has been a while since my last post. Sorry for the long absence. I am still here, just got caught up with work and holidays and not a lot of progress on my projects. I finally got my sewing machine out again and made some progress on my quilt, and then there is the dilemma. I can't quite decide which pattern to go with. What do you think? Should I go with A:

Or B?
Decisions, decisions.....
