Judy~December Reveal~TAST


Here she is, Seattle Sue, holding an umbrella to ward off the rain. My twelve blocks are finished and now need to be rinsed to remove the pattern lines and then pressed. Hopefully, none of the thread will run! All that remains is to sash the blocks, attach the borders (I found a great thirties print for them.) and then quilt it. LOL

For me 2013 is going to be the Year of the UFOs! I have so many UFOs of all types, including lots of half done stitcheries, and they're going to be my focus. I am, however, going to try to complete a CQ heart as per Suz's Sandy Hook project. So there you have it. Happy 2013 to all my stitching friends! May it be happy and healthy and include lots of stitching.

A hat and an umbrella? Girl, it must really rain in Seattle!

Are you hand or machine quilting these blocks?

Glad you are continuing with us in 2013!

Such a pretty embroidered dress and hat. Perhaps Sue's holding a parasol to protect her fair skin from the sun.

Judy S. said...

Nope, it's raining here. We've not seen the sun in days....

Judy S. said...

We just heard yesterday that 2012 was one of the rainiest years in Seattle ever. Bleh! Haven't decided about the quilting part...one step at a time. LOL

What a beautiful girl she is! I will love seeing these all together. You've done a terrific job, and this is sure to be an heirloom.

Records show that this year has been the wettest in the UK since 1910. It must be a parasol else why would Sue be swatting butterflies. I'm sure in Sue's garden the rain would just be sufficient to keep her garden looking fresh.

She's just so darn cute! Can't wait to see them all together!

Judy S. said...

THanks! I'm anxious to see your finish, too!

Judy S. said...

You need boots in our garden......very soggy out there! That's a special kind of butterfly that loves the rain!

Judy S. said...

Thanks, Angela. Are you continuing with your wonderful stitching-facts in 2013?

Debra Spincic said...

It could also be a coneflower with the world's thickest stem! *wink*

Next year will be used finishing some ufo/wips before they end up taking 10 years to finish.

Judy S. said...

I think I have a few aged UFOs.......maybe more than a few if you count all of the varied ones!

SBS is so cute! I really like the pinks, purples and turquoise together. The flowers on the hat match her dress so nicely. SBS is so fashion conscious!

Judy S. said...

More likely a fancy toadstool!

Debra Spincic said...

At this point, who really knows?

Judy S. said...

Thanks, Suz. It's going to be interesting to put them all together.

Judy S. said...

Seattle Sue?

Cy said...

I love how the pattern on her dress echoes the flowers on her hat.
And the 'trim' on her shoes is just so darn cute. Gorgeous butterfly too.
I look forward to seeing all these SBS's put together Judy. Congrats on completing all twelve blocks.

Judy S. said...

Thanks, Cy! The trim on her shoes is like the pattern on her dress only squished together; it also kind of looks like it could be the edges of her pantaloons? LOL

Congratulations Judy on finishing your blocks: you did such a nice job, and your work inspires me to work on some of my stamped embroidery projects.
