Sew-n-Tell

I must say - your response to yesterday's post has been amazing! Thank you for all your answers and questions, and being so encouraging. I will take my turn after I show you this --

I finished this one off in a mini quilt - it measures 8" square. I love it! I decided my larger colorwheel needs to be put in a frame, I want to protect it from dust and kids! But this one will hang out :)

simply square button


I couldn't stop doing the embroidery on Sunday when I took the pictures for the stitching tute! Football was on, my self inflicted "homework" had been completed the day before and I just sat, and stitched. It really is that sort of easy project, and seeing the colors come together as I went around is a bit addicting. Especially since it is so small :)

There's a list of everyone making a color wheel on my sidebar if you would like to see how others are approaching this project.


My own answers --

The last book I read, well I have a post about it next week . . . hold that thought! I think I will make a huge list of all the books suggested and compare notes. Do you all know paperbackswap? It's free, and a great recycle project for the books that take up too much room in your house. I suggest searching by ISBN if there's a specific book that you are looking for :)

I usually do 10-14 loads of laundry each week - I am thankful for the large front load machine that we upgraded to when I was expecting Owen. We don't keep tons and tons of clothing on hand for each child, and usually need to wash their clothing mid-week again. It works!

Shopping on Etsy is fun and pretty simple, but I don't do enough of it! I usually look at something and think "I could make it though" and "I don't really have $xxx to spend" so I continue on. I do like to shop fabric prices on there occasionally, and love (like many of you) the beautiful jewelry offered.

Seriously - Thank you - for all of your input yesterday. Be looking for a day in my life on Monday, and have a great weekend!

Blessings ~
Amy

Love the color wheel! I have been watching as you and a couple of the others have been working on them and this is an amazing project! Another one for my to-do list.

Erin said...

Amy, I need to finish my color wheel! I feel like such a slacker...I promised myself I wouldn't finish any more projects until I finish the quilt I'm making for my brother in law's wedding...in two weeks. Yeesh! Your color wheel is stunning :)

Amy, your colour wheel looks great. I love the way the colours just blend into each other.
Erin, you're not the only one feeling like a slacker. I haven't started mine either but hopefully I'll make a start this weekend...

Very cute color wheel! It must be hard to be busy with what your doing and not be able to share.

I love the way you made your color wheel into a mini quilt. Now I'm rethinking moving up to the bigger size hoop ;-)) I was able to do a little stitching today on the big color wheel. I'm saving it to work on when I'm on the go. Still have quilts to finish up for Christmas. This weekend I hope to go back to yesterday's post and comment.

Have you heard about www.BookCrossing.com? It's also a fun club for book readers.

I love all the colors and you do such great work.
When you first posted the first larger one I wanted to create it. But it'll have to wait until after the new year.
Thanks for sharing!

Your color wheel mini quilt is sooooo beautiful! I'm inspired! I would need to buy some purple cuz I actually don't have any left! I wonder how a color wheel would look with variegated thread?
