Slow Sunday Stitching.

 I’m almost finished with the cupcake row. I have a little bit left to do on the cupcake paper on the last one. After that I have to do across the ground line and it will be done. I’ve taken the picture showing groups of four which makes it easier to see them.



These have been a lot of fun to do. 

For the next section I’ve been searching around on the internet for free designs add to this quilt. I have found some vintage tea cups with flowers in them which I think I will do next. Here’s one of them.    It will be done in a 6 inch square. Once I finish the row of cupcakes I’ll trace out and colour in the cups and flowers. I think there will be four different cup and flower designs.

Slow Sunday Stitching

My embroidery obsession continues.I have almost finished as much of the cherry pie picture as I can do.  I needed to order thread to do the pastry. 


 The tracking info says it won’t be here until Tuesday. That meant I needed to get another one ready. I am doing my version of the Crabapple Hill Summer Kitchen. I’m replacing some of their blocks for my own. I found a fabulous colouring page of cupcakes. I cut them up and enlarged them to the size I want them to be. They are each about 3 3/4 inches tall. This is the first 3 of the row started. 


I decided they would be vanilla cupcakes with different frosting treatments. The row when it is pieced into the quilt will be 5 inches by 48 inches. Here they are all coloured and ready for stitching.  


It’s hard to get a good picture of them all in a row. So much fun! I’m linking to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching
