Lily House has gained a few needed items and one permanent resident.
A gorgeous white scrolled bed arrived and a handmade black and white quilt.
Just as he was trying out the new quilt and testing the comfy coziness of the mattress, Gatsby heard someone coming up the stairs. He thought it might be yet another potential roommate and he was right.
The worst roommate possible...Cruella De Ville. Luckily once she took a look at the kitchen appliances she left in a hurry, much too primitive for her.
Snow and Ariel stopped by again just to check in on Gatsby. He is pretty sure they will not be moving into Lily House anytime soon, seeing as how they both live in fabulous castles.
Hello old friends! I can't believe I didn't post even once during the month of September and now October is half gone. This seems to be a growing problem.I will have to do some catching up.
I have finished the last of the embroidery on 8 Sunbonnet Sue quilt squares that I have been working on a little at a time, during the summer months, over the last few years.
Sue and I go way back...
I have loved her since I was a little girl. It has something to do with my Laura Ingalls, Holly Hobbie, Anne of Green Gables obsession.
These blocks and I go way back.I bit off pieces to stitch and completed all of the like colored items before moving on to another color thread.
For instance, I decided I wanted the girl with the sporadic dots on her dress to be red right away so I embroidered her dress with french knots on every block before starting the green dress on the other girl.
Then I stitched all the purple flowers or all the yellow flowers before moving on.
Now the big dilemma is what type of design do I want to use to make this quilt top? Any suggestions?I am pretty sure I want to use the three fabrics in the top photo but I still need to find a blue calico print to connect them.
