Joyful Embellishment .......

Valerie Bothell.......co-author with Allie Aller of Quilting..Just a Little Bit Crazy!...... has started a Facebook group called Joyful Embellishments. The purpose of the group is to discover new crazy quilting seam and motif ideas.

To find it just do a search for Joyful Embellishments on Facebook. 

Valerie will be posting a new stitch idea Monday through Friday of each week. They will be based on variations of standard stitches such as the Herringbone Stitch. By the end of the year you will have tons of new stitch ideas to use on your crazy quilts.

Everyone can stitch along and post their work. So far there has been some amazing eye candy to see.

If you're not a Facebook person Valerie has also created a Pinterest board where she has posted pictures of her daily stitch ideas. So far there 38 ideas.

Pinterest board.....you can find it under Joyful Embellishments...https://www.pinterest.com/valbothell/joyful-embellishments/


Take care:)

Crazy Quilting Journal Project 2015 - January Block

I finally got it finished. It seemed like a never ending project. It's not what I expected to do at all. I was trying to work on the principal that less is best but I sort of forgot myself....LOL

It's a bit busy.




I like the hare and the tree but then it went downhill from there :)




I started to stress out that I wouldn't get it finished in time and of course as fate would have it.

I didn't. Ah well.

I have also learned a lesson too. The block I chose from Pintangle may not have been the best for a newbie like me.
