And, She’s Off!

Test Stitch Out of Horse

Test Stitch Out of Horse

finishedhorseIMG_0544IMG_0542Here are some of my current projects.  The horse is a design for the back of Ronnie’s blue chambray shirt.  We selected this design, I stitched it out and it was too dense for the cloth.  So I edited the design, halved the number of stitches and stitched it out again on the yellow fabric.  It worked, so yesterday I stitched it on the shirt and it looks great.  Now I only have to do the designs on the front over each pocket and that project is complete.

The two baby blanket quilt tops are going to be my first quilting projects.  Tomorrow I’m going to buy the batting and backing material and give it a shot.  Hopefully since they are small I’ll get a taste of quilting without the stress.  These two quilts and the bibs I embroidered today will be a baby gift for an as yet unborn little boy.  Wish me luck!

When these are done I’m going to start garment construction for the first time in about 30 years.  I have fabric, patterns and supplies, and an online collaboration class in making and fitting pants.  Tomorrow, the world!!!!!
