Baby Steps…maybe that will be my “word” for the year!!!

In continuing  with my theme for the year…….

We actually started the year out wonderfully at Barnes Noble, with a cup of tea, Oatmeal Raisin cookie and a set of inspiring Quilt Magazines…..


When I have had a few minutes, I have been sewing on this top which was started at the Elizabeth Barton workshop back in November……

DSC01708 I picked this one to start on because it was heavily pinned to the design wall and I was not excited about the thought of taking it down.

I have managed to spend 30 minutes sewing on several days, although today’s “sewing” was actually re-sewing one seam three times and finally taking it out again!!!!


I have also spent a bit of time learning how to make an embroidered    “Featherstitch”.     This new aspect of my education is thanks to the “Take A Stitch Tuesday (TAST)” challenge issued by Sharon B. at “Pin Tangle”.  If you want to learn more about the challenge, click on the TAST button in the right column.
