I have a confession to make.....while I love my circus quilt project and I know I still have puppy blocks to finish... I... brace yourselves... have been working on something else as well. You see, Ivy mentioned (and I agreed) that it was kind of... boring looking around here and I should do something to spruce it up. So in the interest of making things nice for my guests (see how I justify) I've started working on a new banner design....


I really love how it is turning out but working with the dress linen is taking some getting used too. When I tried hooping it just by itself it was too stretchy(?). I'm not sure that's the right word but I was having tension issues. I bought some tear away stabilizer and that helps but I'm having to adjust how I stitch. Normally, especially with stem stitch, I'm more of a sewer. The stabilizer doesn't have any give at all so I'm having to use more of a stab approach. I think it still looks ok but I feel slower than normal.



  1. I love this design! I'm sure it will turn out wonderfully!


  2. Thank you so much! I think it's my favorite thing I've done to date.

  3. LOVE it! your banner is great and the do to know how to draw! Fun fun fun!

  4. I love your frog...but you know that. heehee Since I'm not as crafty as you, I'm just here to appreciate and nod my head like I know what you're talking about. lol love ya.
