ALYOF November Goal

Image
Life is amazing, no matter how much preplanning I do lately things just are not getting done. I decided I would post them anyways here for the record! I was going to enter this Flowering Snowball mini quilt into
Amy's Creative Side Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2014
I went out two weeks ago and took some beautiful photos! I completed my ALYOF October Goal for
Sew BitterSweet Designs
and again missed the deadline!
But I did make the deadline for
World Book Media
who took it to Quilt Market
(yes, first time, very exciting, want to do it again)!

I made this cute little fabric basket for David's sweet 4th grade teacher! I admire men and women who can teach a room full of 9 and10 years old!
For I think I would go Buggers (hi, Lucy)! One is enough for me!
Since grossing me out lately is his entertainment.

So for November I am going to try and get my self together and meet my next deadline! The IG Mini Swap! I have it narrowed down to these two patterns! I just got my rulers and patt…

Le Challenge

This month's challenge was "Wings" so guess what has wings? Birds!

So I submit to the Le Challenge Group
I am excited to show you what I made! Working to create a little texture for my birdies I used Aurifil Thread 12 wt. It is wonderful to use to hand stitch, embroider, or cross-stitch. I fussy cut the birds out of this cute fabric "Just Hanging" and went to work stitching. The stitches really look great on printed fabric designs. I am new to embroidery and can't do it for a long time but I really love the way it looks. I hope you do too! The basket pattern I used I have blogged about before, so you can find out about it HERE, if you would like to know more. It is a great pattern! Thank you for stopping by In The Boon Docks" and please visit in the future!
Create and be unique, Lisa

It's for the Birds

Image
Hi! Welcome to "In The Boon Docks"!
At our house we have lots of birds flying, eating and running around. Some days the wild turkeys come down and eat up the chicken feed for my Rooster and three hens that live here on our property. I have (6) pullets (bigger than a chick but smaller than a hen) that I have raised from chicks that live in a "hen house". Cardinals, bluejays, nut hatches, and many more birds nest on the hill behind our house. Can you tell I like birds? Well I do!

So when Madam Samm announced this blog hop I just had to sign up! Her blog hops are so popular that if you don't sign up quick you never get in. The challenge is trying to come up with ideas to excite the readers and please the Madam! She is very nice but expects your best! I am kind of worried this time her "It's for the Birds" and mine aren't quite the some. But she is very generous and always cheers us on! Thank you Madam Sammand our cheerleader Mary fromI …

I got all my scraps together and made this little basket! I modified the pattern I used for the Patchwork Fabric Basket (that I blogged about here) by using 3 1/2 inch squares, (3) on each side (instead of the patchwork). I hope my partner in Modern Scrappy Bits Swap! Round 2 likes it as much as I do! I made this basket with scraps and have no idea who designed the fabric but I love it! I hope you decide to try something new this week! I would love to see it! Leave me a comment and I'll stop in and have a look! Thank you for stopping at "In The Boon Docks", Lisa!It is Tuesday so I am linking up with Connie @ Freemotion by the River. Thanks Lisa
