'Big Stitch' Quilting, more,' Embroidery and Patchwork Revisited' Book Review...

My white Amaryllis in the sun light, it had four blossoms this year.

'Big stitch' quilting almost done on my art quilt.

More done on my embroidery kit project.

Found a great new book, 'Embroidery & Patchwork Revisited', by Janice Vaine.

What's Up Thursday!

I hope you are having a wonderfully productive week. Even if you aren't, look forward to next week, it'll come. Haven't you noticed that creativity comes in rhythms? Sometimes it's a water fall, sometimes it's a trickle.

I found 'Embroidery & Patchwork Revisited' by Janice Vaine, published by Landauer Publishing, and what a good book on all things embroidery and crazy quilting! I highly recommend it for inspiration and excellent examples and directions.

My art quilt is almost all quilted with 'big stitch' hand quilting. Again, I use 3 strands of embroidery thread because that's the way I like to do it for now. Maybe I'll use pearl cotton on the next quilt.

The embroidery kit I purchased at a local fabric store is getting done a little here and a little there.
I do like the colors on the dark background.

My Fabulous White Amaryllis is now blooming, so gorgeous.  I've got to get a picture of it in the morning light, as if I didn't already have a million pictures of it.
