Be Mine - February BOM Done!

I mentioned a while back that I have joined the Sweet Stitches Club by Kathy Schmitz through Shabby Fabrics.


I dove right in to the stitching as soon as it came.  I'm glad I did because right now I don't think my poor fingers could handle it!  Here is the finished block.  They are supposed to be made into individual pieces, but I am saving mine to put into a whole quilt. *Edit* - I should have mentioned the bird! It is a pre-printed applique that is simply fused on and is ever so cute!

I put a temporary halt on my Old Glory quilt.  The fabric I picked as background for the stars blocks just didn't do it for me.  I found a fat quarter in my stash that is perfect and am waiting for more to arrive in the mail soon - at least I hope it does - I haven't heard from the shop that they actually have it in stock as it was on sale.  If not, I have a backup fabric I can use. As soon as it comes, I'll be back in the zone!

I like the heart stitchery a lot. I am trying to figure out the blue bird. Is it applique or is it already printed on the fabric? Cute!

This is cute. I'm with Karen and asking about the bird and how it is applied.

Pretty stitchery. It looks great.

I enlarged your pretty BOM and couldn't figure out the bird either. It almost looked like it was stamped on the fabric but would do I know?

My fingers are so sore! They're cracked and dry, no matter how much lotion I use.

This block is really cute! Sorry your fingers are not healing up. Have you tried that aquaphilic lotion?

I signed up for that stitchery club here in town and then decided I don't need any more projects, so backed out. I guess I'll just live vicariously thru you! :)

Your stitchery is beautiful! The border frames it perfectly!

After seeing your stitchery, I almost convinced myself to join in but held off at the last moment. If I didn't have so many things waiting for me I would have caved.

Your stitching is beautiful, Candace.
