Stitching round the birds

I haven't got much to show this week.  Charley has moved on a fair bit, but I'm not sure if you can tell...

When I started I wasn't quilting around the birds, but I have seen the error of my ways and am both doing them as I go and using my little odd bits of thread to go back and quilt the ones I missed. They look much better with their stitch-y outlines.

I have also machined together some bits of denim, and sandwiched them with batting, for my next experiment, but no stitching yet so currently it looks like this:

Not the best photo, but it's been so dark I need the lights on and then my poor wee camera is not too happy. Grey damp days: great for stitching time, not so good for pictures.

Linking up again with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching - there's some great stuff there, so do pay a visit (if that's not already where you've come from!)


  1. I like the quilting around the birds. I am curious what you are making out of all those old jeans...I have a tub of them in the garage that I have been collecting thinking I could repurpose them into a quilt. I am visiting from Slow Sunday Stitching.

  2. Such beautiful stitching! Do you always use a hoop? I find them really cumbersome, but I keep wondering if I should persevere? I'm also looking forward to seeing what you do with those jeans - I loved the orange stitching you showed earlier :) Hope you have a good week.

  3. I like the way your quilting highlights the birds Kaja!

  4. Loved seeing your bird stitches from the back... lovely colours of thread! So fun!

  5. Love the stitching around the birds. Looking good!


Feel free to comment away! I read everything and welcome all feedback. I seem to be getting a lot of comments from no-reply bloggers at the moment - if you don't get a response, that will be why.
