I'm Ready!

Isn't he cute?!
I've picked my colours, washed those pieces that -- till now -- had not been washed -- and it's a good thing I did!  One of the reds ran a bit, so a couple of B&W scraps are now very pale pink B&W.  Ah well -- if the pieces are small, it won't make any difference.

Fabric collection for the OBMQ

I've now printed off the Intro and Part 1 and put them in a binder especially for the "OBQM", so it's time to get started!

I'm making progress on the Christmas stocking too -- all the embellishing on the front has been done, and to my delight I have enough of the fabric I wanted to use for the back.  I've now chosen the lining fabric too, and will spend at least part of today getting this piece together.

Stocking front & hand-dyed perle cotton

Most of the embellishment is hand-stitching with my own hand-dyed perle cotton.  There is some ribbon and ric-rac trim, and a few good-sized buttons, firmly attached.  : -)  The focus fabrics are some Laurel Burch pieces I collected over the years -- I simply love her cats!
