These are more my colors. I like using variegated thread, so there is more interest. One needlecase a week is doable.

I made the wrap again from the free pattern at Fabric Depot. The slits hold the wrap around you, so you don't have to hang on to it. This one is a little shorter--so am I! The yarn is Red Heart. The cables don't show as well in the variegated, but I liked the yarn better.

This idea came from a Quilting Arts TV episode in the 1300 series. It starts as a 9 patch that you slash both ways through the middle and rearrange.

At first I had it as a window pane setting then realized how much matching of seams would be involved. I think this is a better layout interest wise. I know 2 corner blocks are in the other direction but felt that contained the piece better.

It's 60 by 48 inches.

This is the next needlecase. I need 10, so on to the felting.

Bead Journal Project

Here's the next button for the Bead Journal Project. I like this one better than last month's, because I put a base of beads beneath the beaded flower.  It's 1 1/2 ".

This is another piece of Japanese Yukata fabric that I had and hand stitched. The blank center of the flowers just screamed for beads and took quite a while to do! They do make a difference.

It is machine quilted and 20" by16".
