Burp Cloths, Cowboys and Weddings

I know.  Kind of an odd collection of things but they are all my current works in progress.

The burp cloths are for a customer.   I also made her a pillow with the same cupcake appliques.  They are all so cute.  The fabrics are Lecien's Durham Anew by Brenda Riddle.  The tiny prints are just perfect for precious baby girl things.

This stack of fabric came in the mail yesterday.  I have plans for a baby boy quilt.  I haven't made a boy quilt since doing the one for my nephew over a year ago.

The fabrics are Sasparilla by October Afternoon for Riley Blake.  I adore the old-fashioned letter print.

Next up is my long-term car ride project.  We are driving back and forth from our Chicago area home to our western NY cottage and 4 times this summer.  That's about 40 hours in the car.  So this cross-stitch project is my effort to not waste all that time just staring at the interstate.

The pattern is from A Rainbow of Stitches and is the wedding monogram.  I'm using a white aida cloth with a dark almost navy embroidery floss.  I had decided to make for friends of ours who just got married this year but it is taking me so long and turning out so pretty that I may just slip our own initials on there instead.

So that's what's on the table today.  I'll share my cupcake pillow finish later in the week.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. I love cross-stitch. Working on one as well but it's rather big. I think its around 14 x 18. I do it mostly when my son wants me to sit with him as he watches Mickey Mouse. That boy quilt will be such a sweet one.

  2. Thanks Ava. I agree - it's nice to have something to keep your hands occupied to sorta of justify the time spent watching tv.
