Amazing how fast a month goes by as it seems only a week ago that I posted the June stitchery pieces I did. As mentioned previously, all 12 months were made during the year 1997 for the anticipation of moving into our newly built home which continues to be my residence today.
This series of stitcheries I cannot remember where I purchased them or who the designer was, sorry. p.s. Christine has since written me to say this is a series by I DONE MY BEST stitchery; THANKS Christine. But do remember being so excited to move onto the next month each time one was done. Funny that you can't see the stitches of the Angel's hair yet you can pick up the wayward thread on the top right side of the stitchery...go figure. That I never even noticed before taking the picture.
And this design is one of 12 which was designed by Jan Patek of Indygo Junction. They were also fun to do and have even more quilt applique' patterns by her which could easily be made into a hooked piece. Hmmmm, dang that is what I think my next project just might be once Westmoreland Ponies is done..... unless I decide to take a hard right hand turn. I've definitely been known to change my mind mid thought.
And this one I forget the designer's name as well, sorry. But I'm thinking it was probably in a craft magazine somewhere.
Sadly I have not made any into a quilt, a pillow or wall hanging. I do, however, place one on a table behind my sofa for me and visitors to enjoy as they enter the living room.
If anyone should know the designers of the stitchery or the star quilted piece, please feel free to comment and I'll update the blog.
Have a happy and safe July 4th tomorrow and weekend everyone.
