'Big Stitch' Hand Quilting and Hand Embroidery Project..

'Big Stitch' hand quilting small quilt.

'Bohemian Paisley' embroidery kit  by Bucilla.

What's Up Wednesday!
I'm hand quilting my art quilt with big stitch quilting. The quilt design is by Debbie Bowles of Maple Island Quilts.

The embroidery kit I picked up at my local fabric store. The bright colors are great against the dark background. I'm doing satin stitches right now.

Don't you love the stuffed little red cat? My alter ego.

We have spring thunder showers today, entertaining!
Happy stitching!

Circa 15 Fabric Studio and Butterfly for April...

Fat quarters from Circa 15 Fabric Studio, Kirkland, WA.

My April 2016 calendar butterfly.

'Fabric Plate' by Row by Row 2016, bought in Circa 15.

Orange Tip Butterfly on my April 2016 calendar page, lovely colors.

When I was visiting Kirkland, WA I made a few stops into the local fabric shop, Circa 15 Fabric Studio, of course. Christen's shop has an exciting modern flavor. I found the turquoise fat quarters and the star dust in black, wow and I knew they would compliment my current color collection.
I also had to have the Quilt or Die fabric panel by Row by Row 2016 Fabric Plates.

It's Saturday, I plan to go out for lunch and enjoy the spring weather, yesterday I got caught in the rain and it was fun! Enjoy your day!!! It's yours.

Happy Monday!!
I've been in Washington State for a couple of weeks and have to make one more trip there in a few days. The weather was sunny and we did a lot of walking. Spring was in the air.

Remember to stop and take time to enjoy something beautiful, it lifts your spirit!
