Cabin in the Woods - WIP

When I was looking for a comparison as to how much I have stitched on Cabin the past two years -- I found it.  Alittle more than 2 yrs (and 5 days ago) I posted an update here http://www.upnorthxstitching.blogspot.com/2010/12/cabin-in-woods-wip.html

And I had to take it off the QSnaps to move as I REACHED the end of the row!!!  WOOT WOOT!!

So, here is what 20 of 30 pages look like!  (Please excuse the wrinkles and the fact it looks not straight -- it is *both actually, LOL*)

Had to look up when I started this design -- 07/17/08 -- probably will take another 4 yrs to finish.. LOL


12/12/12 Aaron Rodgers Day

If you live in Wisconsin, and are a Packer fan... here you go!

L*K RR #4

Here is my final contribution to the Lizzie*Kate Round Robin

My assigned stitching was from the white arrows and below.   I got to stitch legs and feet/shoes.  Loved the results and the fact it stitched up fast!

Here is Berly's RR with my stitched part. :)


L*K RR #3

My contribution to the Lizzie*Kate Round Robin Im apart of.

I stitched this as part of Vicki's RR request.  I picked this design - A Good Night - Santa '04.

I have to say -- Im not a fan of Wisper W88!! UGH!
Not to work on my reward..... CABIN!!


Bradley's Baby Sampler

Here is the birth sampler I made for my new nephew, Bradley Dean.

My sister picked out the sampler and gave it to me to stitch.  I think it turned out cute!

Baby Blocks Birth Record - Dimensions


L*K RR # 2

My contribution to the Lizzie*Kate Round Robin Im apart.

Spring Alphabet.  I stitched the lower row.  Vickie stitched the upper row.


Snapshots - Quilt finish

Its called "Snapshots" from Atkinson Designs book Happy Hour. I used 12 fat quarter (one of the FQ was less then 18" & then I needed to substitute another color) to make this lap size quilt. I did a 6 X 6 row lay out. The blocks are 9" square. TURNED OUT AWESOME!!

As for the backing and bind, its just a basic black with some flecking.  As for the quilting I just did a 1/4" stitch from the ditch on both sides of the seams.

These colors are so me, and its so contemporary looking!


L*K RR # 1

WOW, I have to say this is the first time I have done a post with this new format, hope it plays nice!!

Hi, remember me?!  Im sure most of you dont..LOL  Well, as you can see, I have gone alittle quiet on this blogging.  Its not that I dont have anything to share, its just that it seems my time is spent more on/at Facebook.

I recently did join a Lizzie*Kate Round Robin, and just sent my first installment off to the next person.  The RR I just finished, belongs to Vickie.

Here is my contribution to the RR --
Im also working on a baby sampler for my new (as of 07-02-12) nephew.  My sister picked out the kit, so Im stitching it up for her.
Ive also been plugging along on Cabin In the Woods... LOVE it!


Yes, our Pugs are ...


Runs like a Deere...

Lately I have been seeing John Deere green & yellow.  About a month ago I finished up a John Deere quilt for my soon to arrive nephew (any day now). (Remember this post showing the birth of a quilt - here.)  I used the Baby Lattice quilt pattern on Moda Bake Shop.  Of course I dug into my stash of John Deere fabric and did alot of fussy cutting.  Here is the result

I gave the quilt at the baby shower for my sister.

So, while visiting with my Mom before the baby shower, my Mom came across the John Deere soft books.  Into the cart they went.  The plan was to get them done before the shower... ya right!  Well Im leaving in a few days to visit with my family, so I was able to get them finished.  I have to say -- I HATE printed fabrics like this.  The printing is so off, and to cut a straight line, you have to fussy cut the fabric, which of course makes it off, totally off.  The first book I made (Farm Sounds), was really bad with the crookedness of the fabric, but I made due.  Counting with John Deere went so smoothly.  I actually enjoyed putting it together.

I started and finished the Counting book this evening, and I got to thinking of making one of those ribbon blankets.  I have no ribbon, so I just used scraps!  All those little JD scraps I held onto worked out great!


Cabin In The Woods - 05.08.12

Tonight I needed to move over Cabin as my wrist were starting to cramp from the design being too close to the QSnap. So I thought I would snap a picture.

Here is a previous of Cabin, what is looked like at the last post So, here it as of today -- only 11ish pages to go!


Almost burnt the house down...

I have the Ultimate Table Top Lamp -- and while using it yesterday afternoon. The daylight bulb started flickering, and I looked up to find smoke coming from under the lampshade!!

I quickly turned off and unplugged the lamp. I found a burn mark on the base of the bulb.

Thank God I was right there with the light on, and caught it in time, or I dont want to think of what would have happen. Counting my blessings.

Here are some pictures of the bulb. I had phoned contacted Daylight to let them know of this happening. Was kinda shocked that they didnt want to take my info at first, till I asked if I could leave it with them. The rep did take my name, location & phone number. I also did send an email to the company with info of what happen, and the pictures of the bulb. My brother who is a Fire chief has already asked for the bulb if the company does not wish to have the bulb. He would share it with the fire investigation unit, he is involved with.


Cabin In The Woods - 03.16.12

Ive been meaning to post an update... but then I would just want to stitch some more, till I got to a certain point. Well, here is the update -- up till yesterday. This was the previous post, showing progress - 01.08.2012 Progress

Looking at the pattern, Im like a few stitches away from having a complete Cabin :)

Birthing the John Deere Quilt

My Sister is having a boy at the end of June... so it was a no brainer as to what theme the quilt would be -- John Deere of course. I wanted to do something "different". I had thought of using the Yellow Brick Road pattern (which I had already used when I made Owen's John Deere quilt). Thought of a Turning Twenty quilt pattern, but then I hit Google. I ended up finding a "charm pack" quilt design - "Baby Lattice Quilt" . Well I knew I had plenty of fat quarters to work with... so I just ended up cutting them up into 5" squares and went from there... so here is the process of 'birthing' the quilt.

Also -- since tomorrow is National Quilt Day, and I have to work, and since tonight was Friday Night Sew in ... I got busy!

The fat quarters & sashing fabric... before the iron & cut

The Iron, spray bottle, and Spotify! I <3 Spotify! Rocked it out to the Train & 90's music.

Fussy cutting.....

and fussy cutting.

Did some serious cutting here.

Here are the 50 - 5" blocks I needed.

BREAK TIME -- as you can see, apple & the Pepsi Max were enjoyed....LOL

Then it was on to cutting the sashing & the triangles

The pile of scraps. Love piles like this! (as long as they are not big enough to hoard for another project..LOL)

All set to get the sew on!

Sewing the rows together.

Ironing, and ironing, and ironing.....

All 10 rows are COMPLETE :)

From Row 1 to Row 10 in the pile.

Called it a night... all set to go again with sewing the sashing to making the rows. Looking forward to this step.


Cabin Update - 01.08.12

The last photo update I did was (GULP) April on Cabin... here

And since I didn't post a before this update, update. You get to see an almost finished page!! Yep, just have about 10 stitches to finish up this page, but with the additional stitching, Im way beyond having a page done.

Two weeks ago - on Christmas, I had the sudden urge to stitch! So, I got out Cabin, and here is my progress up to now... (this stitching round.. I started about half way up on the stitching on the page)


Aubrey's Quilt

I have now completed a quilt for each of my nieces and nephew. (Actually just need to make one for my step niece.)

So, here is my last finish of 2011. Aubrey's quilt- pattern; from Moda Bake Shop "A Sweet Baby Quilt". Front fabric line (charm packs) - Amelia by Me and My Sister Designs for Moda Fabrics. Quilting - 1/2" from the seams. LOVE the results!
