This is one of the few posts that I will make without pictures. I am traveling and although I have my camera, I didn’t bring my card reader to upload pictures of what I am working on. I decided that the feathered star had too many pieces to spread out on the airline tray table, so I started a new project. I know, I said one project at a time, but I needed a small travel project. I can’t wait to show it to you. It is a Christmas BOM using a Lynette Anderson pattern. I am doing the embroidered blocks on silk using silk floss. I have never stitched with silk thread. It is like stitching through soft butter. This is a quilt as you go project as well, so by the end of the year it will be finished! I have never tried a quilt as you go.
I did bring my feathered star with me and will start hand piecing the first block tomorrow. I will be stitching with an infamous Inklingoist. Tune in!
I did download a picture before I left of the birthday cake my daughter made for my grandson’s birthday last week. I showed you the coon skinned cake she made last year. He is an awesome little baseball player so that was the theme this year. I make round cakes and square cakes. That’s it! I admire her cake decorating talent. Here is the baseball field cake. It tasted good too!
