Stitchin' Time

Just a little show and tell of my "stitchin' time".

I've faithfully been printing Gail Pan's free BOM every month. Last week I took the time to trace the first seven blocks and now I'm up to date. The 8th block is now available so I will trace and stitch it this evening!
And, I stitched the 8th Tisket-a-Tasket freebie from Bunny Hill Designs. Need to get the appliqued versions done, too.


Thanks for visiting with me - come again soon!

In Friendship!

You're such a busy and productive gal! I love that! I love your stitching, too! Have an awesome day!

Loris said...

Both of these collections are so cute! Very worthy of your time. Your stitching has come out beautiful.

Juliann said...

Your blocks are lovely and great job keeping up. I am kind of glad I didn't begin these BOMs now because I surely would be falling behind and then feel bad about that. I have enjoyed watching them on many blogs.

Cathi said...

Wow, you caught up with Gail Pan really quickly. I have half of 7 and all of 8 to do. Sounds like a good Sunday afternoon project in between naps! I can't wait to see how everyone finishes that one. I've saved all the Bunny Hills but haven't done anything with them. Maybe in January.

You must have battery-powered hand needles, Darlene! All your blocks look wonderful - I just can't believe how much you've gotten done! I'd have a serious crick in my neck with that much stitching. You are amazing!

Carol said...

Look at all those wonderful blocks! You've gotten so much done...cheering, cheering!!!

Piecefulafternoon said...

wonderful block - I've not done the redwork version of the bunny hill blocks yet - but I'm on the third month of applique - so I'm catching up.

Yours are wonderful.

Wendy said...

You are all caught up on these BOM's, I'm one behind on Gail's and 2 behind on Bunnyhill. I better get moving.

They look gorgeous!!!

Quilt Hollow said...

Dang Ms. Speedy! Are you sure that that wabbit gang isn't helping stitch? They seem a busy crew as yourself! I've got a list of questions as I want to pin down how you accomplish so much!
Do you sleep?
Current Medications?
What's for dinner?

(kidding of course!)

paulette said...

Wow, good for you!! That's the way to do it....but some how...it just doesn't happen for me...what's your secret-unplug the computer??? Ha ha

Sweet P said...

Oh, oh, you're got ahead of me on Gail's BOM. Now I must get my tush in gear to get caught up.

Kaaren said...

have you worn down the tips of your fingers yet, Darlene? Wow, are you ever on a roll!

What are you going to do when you get all your projects finished? Wait. I know. Start all over again. LOL

Happy stitching, my friend.

Salem Stitcher said...

Nan said...

You do such lovely needlework, Darlene! I love both BOMs. You are a busy sewing bee!

Barbara said...

I guess it is true that birds of a feather flock together, grin, almost eveyone I know locally or bloggers are doing these boms, along with the Shabby Roses bom, which is my favorite.
There are so many very nice designers out there who share their patterns like this, and I greatly appreciate each of them.

Eileen said...

Darlene all of your redwork is so lovely! The tisket blocks are fabulous :-D Busy busy girl!

Hi Darlene ~ wonderful to wonder across your blog! You make wonderful things (O: I'm working on Gail Pan's BOM too. I just love it. And your Bunny Hill BOM looks beautiful. I started mine with brownish orange, but don't really like the color. Red is much better! Loved Bunny Hill's stitchery quilt until now (O:

I really enjoyed looking at all the new blogs and getting that inspiration from all the quilts that were shown.
