I was excited when this blog hop was announced. I like to stitch and figured I could get this done with the kiddos around and I would have plenty of time.
Wooo does time slip away quickly.
I immediately loved the doodle designs by bee tree designs. They reminded me of the hand doodling Well let’s see. This is a first for me, writing a blog post.
and Zentangle that I play with.
I started with a solid white fabric that I had around the house, and waited a couple of days for the thread to arrive. I loved the colors and jumped right in with the lazy daisy block. I only placed the dots around on the block using the design as a guide. I wanted a real loose organic look to the block. I added colors as they suited me.
Next I started on square and rectangles block. I traced the designs on my fabric with a wash out pencil. I loved the thought of pink squares with brown accents, so off to stitching I went. I was kind of frustrated with the pencil as it would fade with my hands touching the design when working on it. I had stitched most of the upper right corner, then I pulled it out of the hoop I liked the look of the loose piecing falling across the block. So a change occurred, instead of filling in the whole piece I completed the bottom right corner.
So on to the next problem, I usually have a plan outlined for a finished piece and I still don’t have a feel for what these blocks want to be.
1. Pillows for my daughter’s bed. She is four and thinks they should be hers anyway.
2. Add additional blocks of different stitching and word blocks, like peace, love, joy etc. and make a quilted throw.
3. Or, wrap the blocks on to a square canvas and hang on the wall.
Can I get your vote for my lonely blocks? Thanks in advance for your comments.
