I'VE BEEN SEWING

 Hello Peeps,

I have been trying something completely new - QUILTING.  :-D

Now, I didn't have a lot of material hanging around to do this - going to have to beg friends for any scraps as I'm now hooked.

I joined a quilting site a couple of months ago because I fell in love with the Seagull quilt squares that would be offered every month and here is my first attempt. Suzys Sitcom and this is part of the SEAGULL PARADISE QUILT.

I made a wall hanging for my friend's outdoor Cabana so it's stuck onto 2 layers of thick cardboard.

My chemo fingers had an easier time with the sewing machine. I bought this round needle foot thingy so I could see to edge around all the little pieces but I think it's a foot for freehand embroidery because it was very "slippy ", but considering my furky fingers, I didn't do too bad.

I added googly eyes and omitted to do all the extraneous embroidery as I can't cope with that :-)




I can't show you a full picture of the Quilt because we are awaiting the final square next month, so we don't know what we're going to get yet :-D

I am going to do a couple more as pictures or wall hangings, maybe even a table runner. :-D
Thanks for popping in.

Challenges I am entering:
