Whats up In The Boon Docks

Blueberry Park fabric just cheers up a room! I finished quilting the blocks and turned turned them into pillows. Covered up my old and worn couch pillows. In The Boon Docks: Sewing and Family is where I wrote about making these blocks and how I did it. I started working on this Alison Glass embroidery pattern while my daughter was in the hospital! I drew it out using the hold it up to the window method (light box) with the fabric over the pattern, using my washable pen. So, when I am all done was the ink away with a washcloth! Only problem it gets kinda wrinkly. If I iron it the steam it my take away the drawing.My Floss StoryKnowing I would not have a sewing machine available for 2 weeks I packed projects I could work on in the hospital! I packed this pattern and a variety of Aurifil Thread weights. I was going to do this project with all Aurifil Floss, but somehow the floss bag got left at home.

Aurifil Thread DOM Reboot

Image
Aurifil is going back to 2012! To give you a chance to revisit embroidery design blocks. In 2012, Aurifil Floss was not invented and everyone used Aurifil 12 wt. thread to do embroidery. But now, Aurifil offers 270 stunning colors of Aurifloss, 100% Cotton 6-strand floss but I still use 12 wt. to hand stitch designs and love it! So whether you use floss or 12 wt. these designs are still so cute that they shout to be made by the public again. Aurifil is having a monthly linky party with the blocks and you could win Aurifil Floss!Interested? Go visit Stitch the 2012 DOM Reboot: January | AURIbuzz and download the January block and instructions. Designer Roseann Kermes of Rosebud’s Cottage first introduced her Snowbird block in January of 2012. What a great way to practice your embroidery skills! I think I will try to make the one a month too! So, that link again is Stitch the 2012 DOM Reboot: January | AURIbuzz Stitch up your very own version of Snow Bird and upload a photo of you…
