Am I blue?

I'm not but my hexagon rosettes for my Birds in the Loft quilt are! Today  it's all about the blues!

None of the rosettes are particularly exciting but that's fine with me. Some plain rosettes are needed to make the fancy rosettes shine!

I've ordered a treat for myself. I love little sewing treasures. I saw an adorable magnetic needle holder on a blog I follow, QuiltBee. She received hers as gift from England. A quick search (you just have to love the Google) and I found a place where I can order them, The Cross Stitch Guild! They aren't cheap but I find I enjoy my sewing so much more when I have pretty tools and storage boxes. One of these adorable little critters will be winging its way to my sewing kit very soon!

I have to recount my hexagon rosettes because I need 200 in total. They are now all cut out and it various states of sewing. I was very careful to count them as I cut them however a quick count yesterday afternoon and I am two rosettes short. How the heck did that happen? I'll do one more careful stock take and if I'm still short two rosettes it will be back to the cutting board!

Until I post again, happy sewing!

  1. You're lucky that you aren't blue, but only the flowers. Haha. I think the blue ones completed the top. I like them. The needle holder is nice. I hadn't seen this before. Real quilting friends. Groeten, Dientje.

  2. The first two struck me as green, but the rest - oh so blue. What great rosettes. Love that new tool you got.

  3. Oh I Love the blue rosettes. They will add such a nice touch. This quit is going to be so gorgeous! Happy stitching. The little critters are cute too. :)

  4. Hmmm. Missing sewing. Sounds like the work of a teenage cat to me. Love the blues and thank you for the link for those little needle holders. They are adorable! Have to add them to my wish list.

  5. I think your blue rosettes are wonderful! What a cute little needle holder!
