I have begun the challenge of making a crazy quilt block each month for this year, 2013. I have never made a crazy quilt block before, and did not even know what a crazy quilt was…
so I did a bit of research, and then jumped in
No – there is nothing special about me that I am able to participate; I jumped on the opportunity to register, and lo and behold here I am!
Having fought the urge to redo the entire block, I have posted this up and can move on to the next block. This first block does not really look like a crazy quilt block (from what I can tell from looking at other CQ blocks) but I am learning. Everyone starts somewhere, right?! :D might as well start right where you are –
Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
Week 34 of Take A Stitch Tuesday, is the Linked Double Chain Stitch …a combination of chain stitch and twisted chain stitch……….
start with two chain stitches, then a twisted chain at the bottom……….
this is the first time embroidering this stitch, and it reminded me of
…the little paw pads on rabbit’s paws. :)
I did a row of Pekinese stitch (week 33) as well to catch up .
linked double chain on the left; pekinese on the right.…
come follow along! and, no, I am not leading you down a rabbit trail…you will learn a new stitch a week, and be encouraged……whether you stitch or not :)
For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward [man] is renewed day by day.
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding [and] eternal weight of glory;
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen [are] temporal; but the things which are not seen [are] eternal. 2 corinthians 4:16-18
