STITCHING ON THIS AND THAT.......

 I've got blocks caught up for the A to Z Blogging Challenge to the letter T.  Today's letter is 

P...for Pumpkin

I've always considered pumpkins a veggie....but it's NOT.  

A pumpkin, from a botanist's perspective, is a fruit because it's a product of the seed-bearing structure of flowering plants. Vegetables, on the other hand, are the edible portion of plants such as leaves, stems, roots, bulbs, flowers, and tubers.

Want to know more about the Pumpkin?  Wikipedia has all the info you want to find out.

I am working on a National Day Calendar Quilt.  April is Car Care Month.  So I of course made a Car block for my quilt.  I need to put a tail light on this car.  I'll be using a Bullion Knot for this.  Want to know how to make a Bullion Knot...hop over to Sharon's place, Pintangle.  She has a picture tutorial on how to do this stitch.


 And yesterday's post was about my Table Runner.  I finished the center embroidery for this.  Now to figure out what to do with the rest of the space.  Any suggestions?????

STITCHING.....

 I've been working on my A to Z project for the last couple of weeks...trying to keep up.  Today is a break from that.  So I'm hoping I can finish up the embroidery on my Table Runner.


I've only got a couple flowers, stems and leaves to do...then I can start adding the border.  I'll be adding a border of flowers around the outside edges.  Hopefully I can figure out the placement so that it all balances out.  That's what I'll be working on today.  What are you stitching this sunny Sunday?

O IS FOR.....

 Oval....


 and no it isn't suppose to be an Easter Egg...lol.   But it could, if the letter was E.  

What does oval mean?
An oval (from Latin ovum, "egg") is a closed curve in a plane which resembles the outline of an egg. The term is not very specific, but in some areas (projective geometry, technical drawing, etc.)

N IS FOR....

 Needle Threader...

A couple years ago I bought 100 Needle Threaders from Ebay.  I gave 3.00 for them.  I use needle threaders a lot when I'm working on a quilt....as I do a lot of hand sewing.  Even though I got new glasses this year, I still have trouble threading a needle.  

I also use them to thread my needle while tying a quilt.   They break easy, so yarn doesn't work in them all the time.  Do you use a needle threader?

THIS AND THAT.....

 Last night I ripped out the Tile Quilt and redid it.  Now it's all done, just needs some strips along the sides,top and bottom.  And it will be ready to sandwich.  

Speaking of sandwich, I got the Teapot Quilt sandwiched.  It's waiting to be tied.

And of course I can't forget about the letter M, which is the letter today for the A to Z Blogging Challenge.  So M is for.....

Mouse...
