Lily – 3 Years Later

December 22, 2014

Lily - Three Years Later

This Lily, my sister and her hubby’s sweet kitty.

You may remember Lily from our big fundraiser from November 2011. She was rescued by Stephanie & Richard and she was obviously injured.

The vet discovered Lily had been shot and that she needed to have her leg amputated. It was an expensive procedure, but she needed it to save her life, and with the help of the online community, we raised enough money to cover the cost. Many, many people shared generously.

Lily - Three Years Later

She’s doing fantastically now and is Queen Kitty of the house with a brother kitty (Owen) and sister kitty (Miranda) in the house.

Thanks to Richard for the photos of Lily and to Michelle Thompson for reminding me that I hadn’t shared an update for a while!

Read all about Lily’s journey.

We’re Doomed

December 8, 2014

C3P0 Cushion

 

I have the great fortune of being surrounded by people that love many of the same things I do. When I began to contemplate the birthday of my brother-in-law, I knew I wanted to start with my C3P0 stitch that I designed earlier this year for The Summer of Stitching.

Enter this fun pillow, made with an 8 1/2″ center, 2 1/2″ & 3 1/2″ borders plus triangles to make it interesting. The pillow front is backed with muslin and I used some straight line stitching to give it a quilted look.

I gifted this pretty yesterday and couldn’t wait to share! Look for it tomorrow on Talk To me Tuesday, along with a giant pile of blankets I’ve been working on for The Linus Connection!

Get the C3P0 stitch for free right here. Find more of my patterns like this right here on Sewhooked and on Fandom in Stitches.

Paper Piecing Vintage – December (and we’re done!)

December 1, 2014

Paper Piecing Vintage with bonus pieced borders

This is it!

The big one…the one we’ve all been waiting for!

It’s hard to believe, but we have reached the finale of Paper Piecing Vintage!

Today’s update includes not only the final pattern, but the finishing instructions to turn each size block into a quilt using either 6″ or 12″ block AND an optional surprise bonus not included in the original design, the beautiful pieced border you see above!

It has been my great joy and honor to share this very special vintage-inspired Block of the Month event with you all. Thank you for shopping small and supporting an independent designer like myself! Your patronage helps to keep me designing and sharing both free and for sale designs.

Amber's PPV
And before we move forward with this last big PPV post, monumental thanks go out to my very good friend and consummate pattern tester Amber Lowery for testing each month’s pattern so it could come to you every month error free! This stunning black, teal and purple quilt with optional pieced border is her finished version!

And now…the final block in this 12 month block of the month!

Paper Piecing Vintage December

Today we have Spinning Puzzle. It looks complicated, but it pieces like a four patch and is super duper easy!

As with all the blocks from PPV, Spinning Puzzle is entirely paper pieced and both 6″ and 12″ patterns are included.
