Finish It Up Friday

I\’ve been doing some embroidery work lately. I really enjoy how well embroidery projects travel and how quick they are to work on and put away to fill that time throughout the day that would be wasted otherwise. I started a set of owls a couple of months ago and just recently picked them back up again.

This was my first one:

I then added another..

And then my dogs decided to drag the bag with my hand work and everything in it all over the back yard. I was able to salvage most of it except for the hoop. A few holes in the first piece, but I can do patchwork around the edges and make it work, don\’t you think?

I have finished 2 pieces and started my third today. I think I have 7 total. Might have to do my own design to make it an even number. I\’m trying to decide what to make with them though, any ideas?

I also wanted to feel like I actually did something start to finished so I decided to make a new case for my iPad, using City House Studio\’s iPad Case Tutorial. I used some Michael Miller fabric I bought at the Houston Quilt Festival and am very happy with the way it turned out!

I feel like I might be making a few more as gifts. 😉

  1. The owl embroidery is darling! Too bad your naughty dog got to it, but I'm sure you can salvage it since the holes are around the edge. I think you could make a wall hanging or a table runner with them. The Ipod case is really nice!
