Look what I did!!!

OK, I set myself some goals and whilst I didn't acheive everything (and no I did not get up at 5.30 - that was a rediculous idea!), I did manage this....

The detached chain stitch sample - random and circular
Detached chai stitch

Another stitch sample (which wasn't on my list) - Eyelet stitch, regular and square
Eyelet stitch - finished

And....

My first journal quilt... "Keeping it together..."

Made with hand-dyed fabrics in cotton and flannel

Detail of beads and faces
Detail - bead and face Detail of bead and tassel

Detail of stitching. I was so please with how this turned out that I almost stopped at that (some people have trouble knowing when to stop, I howeverhave a tendency of stopping too soon) but didn't.

Back to work for a week and then a weekend away with the girls.....

Great journal quilt - but I also really like your eyelet stitch sampler. Appeals to my sense of order (which I am trying hard to conquer!) I think, while still being a bit freeform...

I love your stitching, but I think your journal quilt is just fabulous. I love the colours so much.
