Just a quickie...

It's Sunday and I am planning on doing some drawing today (honestly) but thought I better get a quick post out during naptime.

This page is all I've managed since the last post:

Note chubby, oats-covered hand of my 'photographic assistant'.
As you may have guessed from the subject matter, I have been spending most of my free time (i.e. bed- and naptime) attempting to sew stuff. A week or so ago I finally completed the growth chart. It was my first ever attempt at...I hesitate to say 'embroidery'...let's say 'hand-stabbing cloth with needle and thread'...but I'm happy enough with the result. I didn't even attempt hand-stitching the binding I just went with an artistic (cough, cough) wavy machine stitched line. But despite dubious technical execution the lovely Echino fabric saves the day.

Many thanks to Sarah at Narcoleptic in a cupboard for the design tips. (Don't stare at the binding'll make you queasy!)


  1. Oh sweetie I LOVE it! Really gorgeous. Now, where's the embroidery close ups?!

    1. Thanks, Sarah. That's as close as you're getting :)

  2. Sweet to see that chubby hand! Lovely sketching and adorable wall hanging. Don't you know that art quilts do not have straight lines and perfect bindings? Yes, It's an art quilt!!! Now relax and enjoy it.

  3. Thanks, Lynn. Ok, it's an art quilt! It would still be nice to learn the technical skill to sew straight lines, though. That can be a winter challenge for me.
