Some Stitchy Goodness...

There's been a little bit of stitching going on here lately - not as much as I'd like mind you since I'm getting near the end of this semester, but still, a teeny bit is better than nothing!

Here's what I've made lately...

This little mini was made for Amanda of msmcporkchopquilts fame. I embraced the blue and orange craze and used a little Flea Market Fancy and Nicey Jane paired with linen to create this paper-pieced starburst pattern.

The back is one piece of Kelp Forest in Blush from Heather Ross' Mendocino line. I can't remember what the solid is (I think it might be Marcus) but I absolutely love the buttery yellow colour!

Here's an in-progress pic of the hoop for my partner in the Scrappy {Hoops} Swap on Flickr. I decided to go "sketchy" with my hoop, and made it interactive so that the little owl peeks out when you open the door. Since this picture was taken I've added a little smoke coming out of the chimney and a little green around the base of the house. Once this is sent out and I receive my hoop in return, I'll show pictures of this one all finished!

I'm still working on my next Moda Bake Shop project so that's taking up most of my free stitching time, and I've been knitting up a storm too! I really need to figure out a good way of taking pictures of my knitted goods once they're done and, trust me, once I do there will be a whole lotta stuff to show you guys! Hope you're all having a lovely weekend; I need to get back to working on a paper, ack!


  1. Absolutely gorgeous block! And your hoop is adorable.

  2. I love your paper pieced star burst! May I ask where you got the pattern?

  3. Lovely stuff! I do miss being in a swap group a bit but it kind of stresses me out every time I'm in one! Is that a new header you have too? The stack of quilts looks fabulous. :)

  4. Such a cute little mini! I love the colors! I really need to try out that pattern! :)

  5. love your star mini and of course, your sweet hoop, too! Can't wait to get my hoop in the mail and see if my partner likes the one I made. Love swaps.

  6. Oh my goodness - your hoop is freaking adorable!

  7. Such cuteness!!! I love the little door and the cute little owl behind it. I love the little mini too - lucky Amanda!

    Happy Thanksgiving, Hello Kaye-ty!
