This week I finished the Redwork Nativity scene, I still need to finish it off. I think I am going to keep this one, and have it with my Nativity Scene at Christmas.
I also finished an other of Jenny of Elefantz's stitcheries. This will be for a needlebook for granddaughter Kyleigh for Christmas. Still need to get this together too.
The next couple of days I will be working on this applique. I am incorporating it into my One Stitch at a Time stitcheries by Kathy Schmitz I have stitched out with birds on them. This will be a wallhanging for daughter Kristen for Christmas. I have six stitcheries, and I am going to do this applique piece. I found this section in a book by Barb Adams and Alma Allen called Birds of a Feather .
These are the stitcheries. Hard to get a good picture of these.
And this is the section I am appliquing. There are birds on the first, third and fifth pear.
Today I also got a couple of other sewing projects done. On the Stitch it and Gift It Blog Hop I just participated in, Nancy at Patchwork Breeze gave instructions here on how to make a Pocket Pillow Book Tote. My youngest granddchildren John and Klara and parents will be traveling to Arizona to spend Thanksgiving with their other grandparents this year. So I thought this would be good for their 14-hour car ride.
Also today I was able to make a couple of pillow covers for daughters Katie and Kristen. When I made the covers at Halloween, I told them I would have new ones for the holiday season. In searching through my Christmas stash I came across these two panels, so I made them up into pillow covers with envelope backs for easy changing.
I will be linking up at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching. I appreciate this weekly inspiration. Pop on over and have a look at what others are working on. Thanks so much for stopping by!
