My First Try at the No Sew Cube

I found the instructions to the No Sew Cube online and decided to try it out. I finished this Bent Creek pattern yesterday and thought it would be great for this particular type of finish. I went to Hobby Lobby this afternoon and bought some jelly bean fabric and pretty ribbon. I was very, very easy. I think it is going to be a great addition to my Easter decorations this year.

Bent Creek Hip Hop

Okay, I have finished my first piece for the 10 project challenge. Just 9 more to go. This was a really easy piece and it was so much fun to stitch. I used a piece of really pretty fabric from Silkweaver (28 ct. Solo Lugana). I also used the GAST threads called for in the pattern. Very nice. I plan to finish this piece as one of the decorative blocks I have seen on several other stitchers' blogs.

10 Project Challenge

Okay! I am joining the insanity of the Stash Reduction Challenge. Of course, I'm a lightweight and am only commiting to the 10 Project Challenge. Even though I have completed 3 projects this year, I am starting fresh with this challenge. I will not purchase new projects, fabric, floss until I have completed 10 projects that I already have.

I won First Prize with the Halloween Fairy!!!!

I entered my completed Mirabilia Halloween Fairy in the Silkweaver Showcase competition and won 1st place!! I am so excited. There were lots of entries, including one from my sister Sharon. I can't believe I actually won. The prize is wonderful, 20 pieces of hand-dyed fabric. I am having such a hard time choosing, Silkweaver fabric is so wonderful and she has so many beautiful colors from which to choose.
