This is my current project. One word down 2 to go. This is a fun project and one I am happy to be working on. Kristy has come up with a fabulous typewriter alphabet paper piecing pattern (try saying that 5 times fast!). She always has her patterns tested before listing them in her Craftsy shop. She created an uppercase and a lowercase alphabet which amounts to a lot of letters!! She came up with a group of words to cover each letter so many people are testing the pattern by making a word. When we finish the word blocks we will mail them to Kristy who will then stitch all the words together to make a quilt (actually, i think she will be making 2 quilts out of the words). It is summer in Australia and they are having a major heatwave and many people have lost homes, belongings, etc in bush fires. Kristy will be donating the quilts to people who have been victims of the fires. Fun project for a good cause.
|Lastly, here is my want to do project. Have I ever cross stitched before?...no. Do I know how to cross stitch?...no! Did that stop me from buying a cross stitch pattern?...no!!!When I saw these cute woodland critters I could not resist. Our baby has somewhat of a woodland creature theme going on in her room so I imagine this piece will make it's way into her room once it is completed. I thought it would be easy but when i glanced over the instructions I thought, "What have I gotten myself into. Is this written i Greek?!" I am waiting for a piece of fabric to come before I can start this project. Hopefully once I start this project it will be easy. I think I just need to stitch "x's" and be able to count and I can do both those things. You can find this project here if you would like to check it out. A new pattern is sent to you the first of each month so the idea is to stitch up one a month to have a sampler at the end of the year. January is flying by!!|
