Work in Progress…

I have been working on LHN’s Simple Joys for a while. In fact, it had traveled with me to Taiwan and back again, but still not finished yet…… I know, it’s kind of slow… There were just too many distractions!!! But I do enjoy seeing this coming together, the colors are just divine!!!!

I’m a little bit worried, though, cause it looks like I am running low on Bean Sprout. I still have to fill in the grass area and the borders, but only 3 skeins of threads left. It is going to be tight!!!!!

I get one of those e-mail newsletters from the Fat Quarter Shop every month, and I totally fell in love with this month’s feature kit when I saw it!!! It was the Hello Yellow Quilt Kit designed by Vickie of Spun Sugar Quilts~~ Don’t you think it’s beautiful?! This is definitely on my “Must Have” list!!!!

So that’s it for today. Don’t forget to leave a comment on my last post if you would like to enter for my giveaway~~ I’m going to sit in front of the TV and stitch now~

  1. Your Simple Joys is looking great! I think we have the same amount done. I need to take a progress pic. I really think I will run out of Bean Sprout! I only have one length left! I might just make it but not sure.

    Cool quilt...those are definitely your colors!

  3. Your Simple Joys is looking good. I hope the 3 skeins of Bean Sprout colors are enough to fill up the empty grass area. The Hello Yellow Quilt is beautiful.

  7. Your stitching looks great. Hope you can make that thread last to the end. It always seems to be an issue with the specialty threads.

    That is a a lovely quilt. Those e-mail updates can be tempting.
