今日もブルーで Blue Tiebacks finished

なかなか仕上げられないでいたカーテン止めをもう一つ仕上げました。我が家のカーテンは無地っぽいブルーグレーなのでどんな色でも合ってくれるのですが、カーテンによってはこういう賑やかな色は難しいだろうなと思います。






使った布は刺繍が映えないのですが何もしないのはクレージーキルトとしては物足りなく、シンプルなハートモチーフを刺しました。

I've stitched two heart motifs from Ms Carole Samples's "Treasury of Crazy Quilt Stitches".

Hi Hideko, Sorry to hear that your weather has been so hot. Ours is too, but I enjoy it (I know that is weird!). Your tiebacks turned out beautifully! What a great idea. And I LOVE your tea cosy. You sure have been doing some wonderful stitching lately. I miss you.... Hugs, Cathy

Cathy and Gerry,
Thanks for your kind comments. But this's not my original idea. I took it from Marsha Micheler's "Crazy Quilted Heirlooms and Gifts". Also you can see a beautiful victorian crazy quilted tieback on Annie Whitsed's "Another World" on her gallery. Hideko

Hi Hideko! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and signing up to follow me. I do visit your blog but generally don't always leave comments. I'll need to do so in the future. Picked up Carole's book and templates recently so need to get playing a bit too.
