Finally finished something

Yay!  I got my second block done for the Clover and Violet Stitch and Quilt Along.

I used variegated perle cotton for the bigger butterflies, and I like the slight color variation it gives.

Oh, and I also finished this one, for my cousin who got married recently.  Please forgive the awful photo quality, and all the wrinkles.  Had to give it to my mom to frame for me.

Other than that, I have barely had time to do anything.  The Hubs is working out of town, and the kids are on summer vacation.  And it's ill-advised to ever assume that you can leave your kids to their own devices for even a short amount of time without hurting themselves, someone else, or something that belongs to you.  ~Sigh~ 


  1. what a beautiful gift! your stitching is fabulous.

  2. Great job! Both of your pieces look wonderful and I have a wedding coming up...maybe I should do an embroidery...hmmm...great idea!=)

  3. Lovely stitching! Nice job. Ahhh, summer fun!

  4. Hello, Heather!
    I stumbled across your blog and I must say a few things:
    1. Your embroidery work here is GORGEOUS!!!
    2. I absolutely died laughing looking at the 12 chickens in the box. :P honestly can't stop giggling every time I think about it. :)
    3. I looked through some of your quilts and they're stunning. You just solidified my desire to make a pinwheel quilt! :)

    I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work soon! :)
