Projects: Beaded sewing kit and Scrap Crazy Quilt Block

This a rainy, cold day. A good day for working on my two projects, but first I'll show my progress so far.

I finished a pinkeep or radial pincushion for the beaded sewing kit. I followed the pattern in Volume 07, Issue 4 of CQMagOnline by Cindy Thury Smith: The keep is 3 inches in diameter.

I've finished three embroidered motifs on the crazy quilted scrap block. I'm remembering how much I enjoy doing them after concentrating on beading for a few months.
Now to walk Glenna. She's bugging me to go.


  1. Your embroidery looks great Bobbi. When I first looked at it, I thought they were machine-embroidered!! And I'm interested to hear what you think of the usefulness of your pinkeep once you finish it. It's really fun having you online!!!

  2. Thanks, Susan. I'm putting more into it than I intended. It is fun.

  3. You do such lovely embroidery - it is very nice to sit here and admire it! Lovely, lovely stitching!

  4. Hello Bobbi, Your initial, heart and tree is beautifully stitched. I especially love the heart. Hugs Judy

  5. Such lovely embroidery work Bobbi. I am fixing to add you to my list of blogs to follow. You are such an inspiration.
