Ship Blue Nose, Rabbit hooked rug, Tatted CQ Rat and Willie

 
  The Bluenose is one of the most famous schooners in the world. She was built in Nova Scotia in 1921, and sailed the fishing banks off the cost of Newfoundland until she sunk on a reef near Haiti in 1946 in 1946. She was the centerpiece of Canada’s exhibition at the 1933 “Century of Progress” exhibition in Chicago, and its likeness is still found on the Canadian dime. On the quilt block, the Bluenose schooner is surrounded by a wreath of Canadian maple leaves. The wreath halves are joined by a stylized crown which is found on Canada’s national emblem.


 
Ms Rabbit, the Flag Lady is finished. It is a hooked rug wall hanging.

Bday gift for my sister. These are so easy to make up, just think about a Christmas Tree with them. It is a tatted snowflake with a bead in center. It is attached to the bracelet only at the top. The rest is free standing and when hung in a window on a sunny day, it just sparkles light all over the room. For it to hang U need to tat a small circle with Ps and chain down and connect to the ring and back up attaching to the first P. That will create a hanger insert. It is tatted with size 40 Lizbeth thread.
The pattern is "First Snowfall" by     Robin Perfetti   tattingbythebay.blogspot.com



Oh my, they look delicious!!

Thank U Mom for the treat!!

Finished another Crazy Quilt Hexie. Under the strawberry plant is a beaded white Rat eating a strawberry!

Memorial Day, Ship Block and CQ Cat


I would love to see the Draft so these young people have more respect for our country.
My Dad was a navigator and made it home from WW2 but many did not. He was shot down in France and some of the gunners in the belly of his plane didn't come home.


 
The next ship block.  The Bluenose is one of the most famous schooners in the world. She was built in Nova Scotia in 1921, and sailed the fishing banks off the cost of Newfoundland until she sunk on a reef near Haiti in 1946 in 1946. She was the centerpiece of Canada’s exhibition at the 1933 “Century of Progress” exhibition in Chicago, and its likeness is still found on the Canadian dime. On the quilt block, the Bluenose schooner is surrounded by a wreath of Canadian maple leaves. The wreath halves are joined by a stylized crown which is found on Canada’s national emblem

Sample Ship, CQ, Ms Rabbit Flag Lady

MS Rabbit, the Flag Lady!  She is almost hooked but still need to get the dye pot out and dye red for the flag. The grey on the border doesn't look good so will rip out and add the brown border.

Found the cross stitched butterfly in the cq scraps. Just right for a center block. One seam still needs some bead work and the silk flowers are finished.


Here is Apple Blossom's last year BOM. I appliqued by hand 3 of the flowers and now machine quilting. It is a table runner to hang in back of a coffee table to hide all the TV cords.
Song of Solomon sampler designed by Robyn Melia.  It is an interesting pattern and takes time, a long time project!!  I have been working about an hour every night since Feb.  Really have to pay close attention, and lots of Ribbits!!
 
Have a great week everyone!

CQ Block and New Projects

 April crazy quilt block for the Hexie quilt. The blue bird is worked on felt using long and short stitch then sewed down on to fabric.
Started working on "The Ladies of the Sea".  The center will be the ship.

Started hooking Ms Rabbit and maybe it will be done my July! Need to dye some wool red using Rit Dyes. The red wool I have is from a skirt and has been washed with lots of vinegar but still bleeds. Will throw it away.
 
Have a great week everyone!
