Stitchery


Stitchery is not my thing but I have managed to get this little saying completed for our new Grand baby that is due any time now.


The pattern is another one from the Jan Patek book Country Quilts.


The top for Christmas 101 from the same book is almost completed.  Well, I completed it but found that Mary and baby Jesus faces were too light and blended into the background.  So I decided to use some fabric crayons to darken them a little UGG!  I guess the crayons were old or frankly I just didn't know how to use them correctly so now I am going to replace the faces and Mary's hair.  I never liked the hair fabric anyway.  There is still a little time left until Christmas.
Happy stitching,
Nancy

Nice projects! I think faces are hard to get 'just right'.

Cute stitchery. I saw on line the other day where a gal tea dyed fabric to use in faces on her quilts. Good idea to be working on Christmas projects now.

Hi, Nancy. The stitchery for your grandchild is adorable. Really cute lettering. And I especially liked your Rocky Mtn Puzzle quilt in the previous post. Those old patterns are so pleasing and I like your choice of fabrics. Stay cool!
best, nadia
