Christmas Carol Mystery Quilt Sew Along Block #6

Hope you are enjoying the Farmhouse Threads 2020
 Mystery Quilt Sew A Long!!
It's Wednesday May 6th which means it's MY day to share!!

Myself and eleven other designers have been working hard to prepare our designs, write our patterns, share about ourselves, and get kits ready to send out!!
This has been such a fun theme this year
using Christmas Carols as our inspiration for our blocks!

Jingle Bells is the Christmas Carol assigned to me!!

This fun little "JINGLE" is a favorite during the holidays!!

Read about some Jingle Bell trivia when you print out the pattern!
 Jingle Bells by the Carpenters
I wanted to share some of the photos during the process of making my block.I like to use freezer paper to trace my applique shapes, press it onto wool, and cut them out. I like to use Clover applique pins for hold my wool in place while I stitch. If you prefer fusible make sure to reverse the pattern. 

Here is where I sit and stitch....
I love to pop in my ear buds and watch movies on my iPad while I stitch!! 
Here is a close up of the tiny gold bells I stitched using just a single strand of quilting thread and going around the bells several times to make a satin stitch look.

S is for SEW!!! 
(S is for social distancing) 

During the past couple of week I have been thinking of all stitching friends and wondering what you are all doing with your time since we been practicing social I started creating some little embroidery blocks that I want to share for FREE with you all!!

Is a crazy time and we all need one another to keep us going, to find the way through. Our schedules and habits have been changed and even with all the sewing projects we have crammed into our closets it is sometimes overwhelming to figure out what to start with!! 

Well here you go!! 
A NEW project to start!! 

I am wishing you all safe days ahead and that you can find joy and comfort in your needle and thread!! 

Happy Stitching!!

Well I have not done a very good job at keeping up with my blog since I said I was going to do better starting in January!! It's now almost the end of March!! 

I'm sure we can all agree that it's been a crazy year so far!!! SO much change and unknown roads we are going down!! We are all good here and just trying to do our best to do our part to help slow the spread of the Corona Virus. 

Everything that I (and you probably) had on my schedule has been postponed to who knows when or cancelled. Just taking one day at a time right  now and taking this time to get some everyday stitching in!! 

I was recently asked to share a free pattern on the Wool Applique Facebook page and someone asked if I would share it here!! OF COURSE!! What a great way to blog again!! I hope you enjoy the pattern and find some joy in your day stitching it!! 

I wish all of you well and safe....Happy Stitching!!
