Sew it Show It Challenge: It Moose Be Love


Joan at MooseStash Quilting is hosting this month's fun challenge: "It Moose Be Love." The directive was to make something that represents what we love. Here's a list of today's participants:


Now about what I love: It's the seashore! I love walking on it, photographing the water and the wildlife, and just all-round spending time on it. Hopefully, if all goes as planned, we'll be moving closer to it (Cape Cod) the first half of this year.

To represent my love for the sea, the shore, and all they encompass, I've made two small projects.

The first is a wool felt seal. The pattern comes from Lia Griffith. 

It's so cute, with safety eyes, embroidered whiskers and mouth, and appliqued spots on its back.

My second project is a 12" wool felt table mat I'm calling "Sea Glass." I wanted to use up some more felt scraps, so I used different shades of blue and green for the glass in the center and the border squares. It's backed with a single piece of green wool felt.

Sew It Show It Challenge: White Rabbit


Happy New Year!

It's time for another fun challenge, this time brought to us by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt.

Here's the list of today's participants:


Our assignment was to make something with white fabric or with rabbits. It's clear what I chose to do:
I made a hand-stitched wool felt rabbit, using this Lia Griffith pattern.

I enlarged the pattern by 180% because I wanted a larger rabbit and because it's easier to stitch larger pieces.

I love the ears!

Here's my little friend eyeing the last of the carrots from the garden:
I made the carrots for a previous blog hop, and that post gives the details.
