A Little Here, A Little There






A little sewing here and a little sewing there, slowly but surely it adds up. Another pile of blocks for my Musical Stairs quilt, still growing and waiting for ironing and trimming. I really like Tula Pink's latest range of fabric, Acacia, and have included several Acacia blocks. About another dozen blocks to go and then I'll start piecing them together......




Here's the newest butterfly too. It's about half the size of the first two I made and happily lives in our kitchen for me to enjoy every day!

For those who have been asking - Miss E is enjoying her time in the big city, dreaming of new beginnings for next year. She is due back Sunday night. Master J is also firming up dreams and plans for the years ahead, he now has just one last exam to sit to complete his school years. It has been a rather amazing week with glimpses of exciting times ahead!

I so wish I could sew. That sounded weird when I typed it, lol. Beautiful shots of the fabric and your newest little butterfly is super cute!

Beautiful sewing, beautifully photographed as well.
Love your permanent butterfly in the kitchen. My grandmother has some permanent butterflies in her house as well, she once made them completely out of pearls and wire, so beautiful! I really have to visit her again soon, it's been far too long since I saw her.
Those are exciting times ahead for you all. I wish Miss E and Mr J the very best in all their endeavours. It will be a big change for you and the rest of the family as well.

I admire you and your patience in working on the quilt. The result will certainly be great. Well, that children know what they want in life. Yours sincerely.

Your children are growing up! How exciting for them to test their wings. Your sewing project looks daunting but so very colorful.

O, wow, your quilts (in your other post) are marvellous, Karen. I love the colors. I am planning to make one as a wall decoration, but I am still figuring out how I have to sew the under and upper part together without getting wrinkles. I think I first have to hand-baste it before stitching. Great series. Greetings, Joke
