It's as Easy as A, B, and C...

Thank yous to those of you who left several creative ideas for making my hollow core door/tabletop smooth for free-motion machine quilting. (See the previous blog post.) I haven't done anything to fix that problem yet, but when I do, I will be sure to let you know. 

This past week I've been embroidering. I'm slowly working my way through the Snowmen A to Zzzz alphabet embroidery. After beginning the project by randomly stitching whatever alphabet letter I thought was the cutest, I decided to be more methodical.

I'm stitching with DMC floss, and the stem stitch.

Finishing the letter "C" is all I've managed to do while I've been here in Kansas helping our daughter who's pregnant and has a separated pelvis. While here, my sewing has been limited to making curtains for new French doors into our SIL's home office, and hemming fabric for a tablecloth. For at least several weeks, I expect handwork will be the extent of my personal sewing. Our grandson is still expected to arrive by a scheduled c-section on Monday, November 8, but today the doc says he has a 50/50 chance of arriving early.

For those of you who like Halloween - and I am admittedly one who does not - here's an appropriate knock-knock joke from Kady L. at "Take a Mom's Word for It." 
Knock, knock. 
Who's there?
Phillip.
Phillip who?
Phillip my bag with candy!

  5. I love embroidery - the snowmen are wonderful and, although I love redwork, the different colors used in embroidery really have my fingers itching to try them. blessings, marlene

  6. Love your blocks especially the candy cane one.
    Oh, I hope your daughter is not in pain. It sure does sound painful.
    Praying the baby is alright.
