Welcome to Getting Caught Up Hello, I am Lisa and if you haven’t been here before welcome! I hope you decide to follow along on my sewing and quilting adventures! This maybe old news to some of you and I love you for it! Thank you for sticking with me throughout the years!
I post on Instagram  Intheboondocksdaily  But my blogging hasn’t  covered a lot of the items  I have made!
I am working on baby quilts this week for new babies!



I am trying like other bloggers  to get back in the habit of  blogging at least once a week!  Now on to getting caught up!


I finished this free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop Wave Your Flag Tablerunner
Fabrics: Patriotic ones I had in my stash  by Patric Loose,  I also used his Stars line  for the back and Binding Kona Cottons- Dark Blue, Aqua & Snow White Thread: Aurifil 50 Wt It is a patchwork pattern and beginner friendly!
with 4th of July coming up you have time to do this!

Pincushion Tutorial

Image
Hexagon Flower Pincushion  Fabric - Heather Ross Trixie

Back of pincushion- Heather Ross Strawberries 

Thimblepads I keep them in a little tin!

Sue Daley Millners Needles  Size 11

Walnut shells

Small scissors and a needle threader!

Aurifil 80 weight thread
A hexagon flower sewn by hand using Aurifil 80 weight thread a piece of backing fabric!  (2) pieces of Pellon SF101 cut to size!
Iron the Pellon  to each back of fabric! It will strengthen  the front side of each side!
Draw a circle on the backside  of your flower! I used a measuring cup,  to draw a circle!
Put fabrics right sides together and sew 1/4” inside the circle!

All the way around!

It will look like above!

Use a seam ripper to make about a 1 1/2” gap

Big enough to put your finger in!

Trim around the circle  (About a 1/4”) Leaving room for clipping!

Clip all around the circle  and be careful not to clip the stitches!

Sew Whatcha Making? linky Party

Image
Hello out there! I am trying to decide if I want to invest time and a little money into having a linky party once a month or once a week! Maybe not at all! My questions to you is would you come and link up?My idea is once a month I would do a post on what I have been making with the link. You could link anything you have created! Crocheting, knitting, sewing, quilting, paper crafts. I don't know maybe you paint rocks, like my friend does.Then we could all look around and be inspired! Do you want prizes? Everyone who enters a link is entered into a giveaway for something? Which sign do you like best, top or bottom, start over!I have wanted to do something creatve for a longtime then I got lost in the ease of Instagram but I realized not everyone who reads a blog is on instagram. Different people like to change it up a bit but my heart is still in blogging and creating.So tell me what you think and help me make a decision. Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave …
