Parade Day

Happy Friday!! Finally I can show some of what I've been working on. With the Winterkist blog hop underway, I was able to reveal my quilt. If you didn't see the blog hop post, you can check it out here.... My project for the blog hop was a 42" square hand quilted, hand appliqued and hand embroidered quilt.

I also had a chance to do some pattern testing for Rebecca which was really fun! I showed a small peek of this last week.....


Now it's your turn!!

I just ask a few things of you:
1. link only projects with some handstitching
2. link to a specific post
3. use the linky party button (found in my sidebar) in your post, so others can easily find the party and join in
4. visit other Handmade Parade partiers, because everyone likes comments :-)
.....and go!


  1. I need to go embroider gnomas on EVERYTHING. Immediately.

  2. That is so adorable! I love your you have the stitched gnome on the back.

  3. Man I love that quilt! :) and that dear is so cute too. I really need to make a hand stitching kit/pouch so I can start taking projects with me on the go. :)

  4. Thank you for hosting this! I am trying so desperately to find my "niche"! My art, my blog(1), bloggy buddies(4)...seems so vulnerable sometimes (all the time)! I feel like I'm doing everything right but the followers are not many and the comments are few! I hope I am as engaging as I think I am and just need to get my name out there! I'm trapped at home in a new city/state with 4 kiddos and a disability. I just want to fit it before I turn 40!haha Anyway, I hope my crocheting is except-able handmade goods! This was fun!-Kim

  5. Great handsewn projects! Still loving the quilt!! =D

  6. I love your hand quilting. I'm just getting ready to jump into trying it, you make it look easy. I imagine it will take awhile to get those even stitches.
