I kind of think I'm seeing two quilts from the embroideries Debra gave me. I'm considering the crocheted piece for the center with the square pieces.
Years ago I found this redwork piece at a thrift shop for about $3.00. It's ripped in a couple of places, stained, has a few holes. I unearthed it looking for something else (of course).
The initial inspiration for this red and white CQ idea was a small cross stitch piece I had done (and of course cannot get my hands on this morning) but would be perfect in my mind with the floral embroideries.
That's what I'm working toward for the CQ this year-- at this point anyway.
Also wanted to add that I stitched up a bunch of 5" squares for one of Debra's Smokin' Hot Quilt Challenge-just don't have a photo right now. I have enough for one more quilt, and lots of purple squares for a second one. This is what I work on at night after work until my brain completely stops working.
So happy that Downton Abbey is back; I think "Justified" starts Season 5 either tonight or tomorrow night and it's only about 35 days until the second half of "The Walking Dead" Season 4. Life is good. :-)
