I finished block #18 for my Crazy Cravings lap quilt. I only have 2 more to go before I will start assembling them into my quilt.
I had just enough embroidery transfers that were suitable for some Crazy Cravings.
There were only a few long seams to embellish on this block. I did some lazy daisy flowers on one seam to sort of mimic the flowers on the hot cocoa mugs. Another seam has 2 rows of half circle chain stitch in 2 strands of variegated DMC. I thought the half circles sort of mimicked the chocolate shapes. Another seam has some lace held down with french knots and herringbone stitch and has a pink running stitch through it. I laced some gold cording through some brown and metallic running stitches and finally added a cookie jar button to cover where the lace and chain stitch meet.
This was my crazy quilt project in 2012 - Crazy Basket Case. It is entirely hand stitched. I hope my Crazy Cravings turns out as nice. I still have a lot to do on Crazy Cravings but I started on...
...my crazy quilt project for 2014 - Crazy Farm!
I'm also doing a little embroidery on gingham for another project I have in mind that needs some embroidery. For right now the project is only in my mind and that's where it will stay until next month.
Before the day ends I might start crocheting a blue scarf for my 4 year old grandson because that's what he ordered.
