It"s been a while!

Wow it certainy has been a while hasn"t it?? Well you know what they say, "life" gets in the way sometimes and it kind of did. But things are better now and I have started to stitch again.. This 1st picture is for everyone who commented on my sewing room saying it looked too neat and organized. Well so much for that. This is what it looks like when I am "creating"!
One table just isn"t enough sometimes. I was in the process of piecing the Victorian tree-skirt I am doing. I"m thinking this will be a long project as there are 12 wedges for this tree-skirt. I"ll probably be lucky if I do one a month. Sometimes things take me longer than they should as I am easily distracted..then when going through supplies, let"s say I"m looking for a small piece of lace, it seems ALL the lace comes out even after I think I have the right one. I should just pick one and use it but I keep searching in case there"s a better one I the only one that does that??

This is the 1st wedge I have chosen to work on, some of these wedges I pieced on the machine then I wanted to try my hand at hand pieing and I must say I liked the hand-piecing alot..

This is one of the many gorgeous silkies I have chosen to put on wedge #1. The holly leaves on this are a blue-gray so I chose to outline some with Krenik metallic thread and of course holly berries with silk ribbon french knots.

Isn"t she just the cutest little angel you"ve ever seen. I highlighted her wing with Krenik blending filament. This is the first time I really get into doing the hair and I love it. I used reg. DMC threads and boullion stitches. Fun, fun, fun. I"ll post some more pics as I go along and thanks for stopping by..


  1. Debbie, first of all I'm glad you're feeling better. Secondly, your tree skirt is going to be just stunning!

    I love what you've done with the angel's ringlets. That is too cute.

    See you next month :-)

  2. A studio you can't mess in while in the midst of a project is worthless. It's like saying you are a cook but never having a mess in the kitchen. Your tree skirt is going to be beautiful! Connie

  3. OH! I LOVE IT!!! Great to see a pic finally!!! Your room is messy! Just a creative vortex! VBG!

  4. I love CQ and this block is beautiful. My "studio" is being cleaned this week. It looks horrible! I can't seem to concentrate when it is a mess.

  5. Debbie,
    Thanks so much for your kind comments about our sweet Savanna. I have known about the Rainbow Bridge since we had to put our sweet Cassie to sleep 10 years ago and I just love it. It was so comforting. I know that Cassie and Savanna are there together now and will be waiting for us to cross the bridge with them into heaven.

  6. Hi Debbie! I feel better after seeing these photos of your sewing room! lol Still to tidy though... roflol
    Love the wedge you have done for your tree skirt - the little girl is so sweet!
