Another weekly update on my current works in progress!
Into the Jungle Cross Stitch
This little chameleon is coming to life quickly, and I’m just two animals aways from “catching up” to the current month of this yearlong SAL!
The magnetic needle minder I’m using is available at Lady Katie Stitchery; the rainbow grime guard is sold out, but you can find more grime guards here!
I’ve finished the quilt top and I’m trying hand tying to quilt it – a first for me! I am hoping to have it finished up in time for the holidays so I can give it to the recipient in person. So until it is gifted, just a quick sneak peek!
Also, another use for magnetic needle minders…. jewelry! Even as a brooch, it still works to stow your needle wherever you need it. While hand tying, I frequently needed a safe place to put the needle but didn’t want to keep moving the needle minder around on the quilt, so I stuck it where it wouldn’t get lost… on my dress!
That’s all for now!
