Just Get Started!

I took a deep breath, then took the plunge and just started stitching. Once I got started, everything became much easier. Maybe I was thinking too hard about what to stitch!

The seam to the right of the pumpkin is an unadorned feather stitch. To the left of the pumkin are blanket stitch wheels with colonial knots. At the lower left corner, I tried mirror-imaging an uneven line of blanket stitch. I have used Perle Cotton 5 for my stitching

So far, I like my results. At the same time, I ask my readers to remember that I am very much a newbie at crazy quilting. Costructive suggestions will be listened to, but I will always tend to stitch as the spirit moves me.

I have had an e-mail from Mom - Thank you! I'm glad you like my blog. And from my daughter Caitlin requesting a CQ project for her (one project at a time for the moment, my dear). And from Miss Carole - Thank you so much for your encouragement and kind words!

Joyful stitching to all!

Hi Teresa,
I'm here via the message you left on my blog...thank you for that lovely comment.
Well, for a beginner, you are doing really well, I love your choice of colour, and Im sure you will make many beautiful Cq's.
Just have fun and let it flow from the heart...don't think about it too much.

Hi Teresa:)
Your blocks are beautiful! Some of my favorite colors, that's why I love Autumn! Thank you for the advice you left on my blog, you're absolutely right. I DO tend to get in a hurry and cannot do good work like that, only "done" work. As a beginner I relish thoughts and advice such as that.

Yay Mom on the internet!

You can take your time - you have to get really good at it so that you're an expert by the time you start on my quilt.

Lots of Love!
