Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #7

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on May 25th, 2015

It’s no secret to those who read my blog that I love ladybugs.  I enjoy seeing them in my yard and gardens because I know these beneficial insects are hard at work eating aphids and other not so beneficial insects.  In fact, I’ve declared it a sin to kill a ladybug!  😉

When Dave was tracing out this week’s pattern, he called it Ladybugs and Lavender because he liked the way it sounded.Workbasket Pattern for Ladybugs and LavenderAs we get further into spring here in southwestern Ontario, the lavender will start blooming.   Unfortunately, while the flowers are such a lovely color, I’m allergic to the scent.   So no lavender scented sachets for me.

This pattern is available to download as a pdf here.

Announcing Our 1st Stitchery Link Party Giveaway

I’ve mentioned a couple of times that I have some giveaways in the planning stages for those who link up each week.

Well it’s time for our first small giveaway.  I found this sweet little cross stitch kit at a local shop.  It’s an older one so I got it for a really good price.  I did check to make sure that everything that was supposed to be included in the kit was indeed included.

Stitchery Link Party Cross Stitch Kit Giveaway

Here’s how the giveaway is going to work this time round:

  • Everyone who links up each week between today and June 14th will be included in the giveaway.  I will announce the winner on June 15th.
  • Because I’m just so thankful for everyone who already has been linking up, I’m going to put each of those into this drawing as well.  While I may be providing the meeting place… it is all of you who join in each week and have been helping to get the word out, in addition to showcasing so many great projects, that is allowing the Stitchery Link Party to grow.
  • If you link up once, your name will be entered once.  If you link up twice, you’ll be entered for a second chance and so on.
  • I will mail internationally.

For those joining us for the first time… Welcome!  And for those who are returning for another week… Welcome Back!

The rules are simple:

1. The project can be anything you’ve made as long as it includes embroidery stitches in some form. Such projects might be but are not limited to redwork, blackwork, goldwork, bluework, (etc), counted cross-stitch, crazy quilting, crewel, silk ribbon, pulled thread, hardanger and sashiko.

These projects do not have to be vintage or vintage inspired. All styles are welcome as long as it’s hand embroidered.

2. Link directly to your blog post, not to your blog home page.

3. If you happen to sell your embroidery or embroidery patterns, feel free to link up to a blog post you’ve written about a project you’re selling, but No direct links to shops or websites selling things.

4. This will be a curated link party. In other words, if a link does not conform to the three simple rules above, it will be removed.

5. Please link back to the Stitchery Link Party with a text link somewhere in your post. Or if you’d prefer you can use the cool button that our son designed for me.

Simply copy and paste the code you’ll find under the button in my left side bar. You can add it to your post or to the sidebar of your blog.

6. As well, please share the love and visit one or two (or more) of the other links and take time to leave a comment.

7. I would, of course, love it if you decide to follow me but it’s not necessary in order to take part in the link party. (If you do decide to follow me, you can subscribe to e-mail updates in the box on the upper right hand side bar. Buttons to follow me on other social media are in the upper left hand side bar.)

Oh and don’t worry if you’ve never linked up to a link party before, I’ve written a quick tutorial called How to Link Up to a Link Party to help you not only link up to this party but to any link party you might like to participate in.

Cellphone Charging Stations

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on May 22nd, 2015

When our daughter was here over the Christmas holidays, one morning she left the cellphone cord plugged into the wall after she unplugged her phone.  Later that morning, Dave was vacuuming the upstairs while I was putting fresh sheets on our bed when I heard that telltale crunching of something being sucked up in the power head followed by a few very colorful words… mostly of the blue variety!

A quick trip to the mall replaced the cord but ever since then I’ve been meaning to make a charging station that could be hung up by the outlet to be used by whoever is staying in the guest bedroom.  There are lots of tutorials available for these online.  I chose this one.

A quick rummage through my fabric dresser turned up some cute owl fabric and coordinating fabric to play nice with it.   A couple of hours later, I had this:

Cute Owl Cellphone Charging Station

Dave suggested that we position the Command Hook up beside the bed for easy access rather than down by the outlet.

Cellphone Charging Station with it plugged in

When the cellphone is in use, the charging cord can be tucked safely inside the pouch of the charging station.

Cellphone charging station with charging cord tucked inside the pouch.

While I was going through my fabric dresser, I found some fun fabric that I bought a couple of months ago and I decided to make a charging station for myself.

My Slippah Cellphone Charging Station

Don’t those Hawaiian Slippahs (aka flip flops) go well with the screen of my smartphone!

I think I’m going to be making a few more of these handy little charging stations for Christmas and birthday gifts.

I did learn a few things while making these two that I thought I’d pass along to anyone who might like to make one for themselves or as gifts.

The thing that gives the charging stations their body is Peltex 71 (fusible on one side.)   Make sure to trim the seam allowance off of the piece that you cut out of the Peltex.   This will make turning the charging station right side out easier and also create a much nice edge all the way around with less bulk.

But before turning, be sure to clip the curved edges every 1/4″ so that the seam allowance will lie flat.

Because of the stiffness of the Peltex you will have to be persistent when turning it right side out and the fabric fused to the Peltex might get a bit wrinkled.  Don’t panic… a good pressing with lots of steam after you sew the opening closed should take care of this.

For my Canadian readers… if you do plan to make some, Fabricland has the large plastic grommets on sale right now for $4.99 for a pack of 8.  It might be a good time to stock up.

And finally on a different note, I would like to wish my American readers a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day Weekend.

Entry #2 Bloggers’ Quilt Festival Spring 2015 Edition

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on May 20th, 2015

Since I posted about my very first quilt last week to link up to the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, this week for my second entry, I thought I’d post about a quilt that I completed just this past winter.

Followers of my blog will have already seen this little charmer a number of times while I was working on it: here, here and here.   But one of the rules of the festival is to write a new post for each entry, so I hope readers will indulge me while I share this again.

Mini Christmas Mouse Wallhanging

The Christmas Mouse redwork embroidery in the center was a free pattern from Joy Patch back in 2009.  (This pattern for December 25th is no longer available but you can find the ones for the 24th and 26th here.)  The embroidery itself was completed back in May of 2013 and then waited for me to decide how to finish it.

Each of those little hsts that make up the diamonds finishes at just 1 1/4″ square!

The completed wall hanging is 13″X13″.

Close up of Christmas Mouse wall hanging

The hand quilting around the plum pudding and the calendar using #8 white perle cotton really helped to make them stand out.  I also hand quilted a 1/4″ all the way around the center section using #8 red perle cotton.

This photo of the back allows you to see the machine stitching in the ditch, I did around each of the diamonds.

Back of the Christmas Mouse wall hanging

I was so pleased with how this little wall hanging turned out that I have it hanging up in my sewing room so I can enjoy it every day.

Linking up to the festival doesn’t close until May 21st so there’s still time if you’d like to join in.

Voting for favorites in each category runs from May 22nd to 29th.  Even if you don’t have something you’d like to enter, you can play an important part in the festival by voting for your favorite quilts.

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #6

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on May 18th, 2015

Lately, in celebration of spring finally arriving in the northern hemisphere, I’ve been posting patterns for flowers.  To change things up a bit, I decided this week that I’d share the patterns for three different sizes and styles of butterflies.

The Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory is about an hours drive from here and is a fascinating place to spend a few hours.   To inspire you, here are some photos from our last visit.

Butterfly Collage

Workbasket embroidery patterns for three butterflies

Butterflies are always so much fun to embroider because you can stitch them in almost any color you like.  They can be realistic or whimsical depending what you’re making and who you’re making it for.

This pattern can be downloaded as a pdf here.

Stitcher Link Party Button

I hope you are all having fun linking up and/or visiting links.  I know that I love visiting each and every one.  I can honestly say that I’m learning things I’ve never known before and in turn being inspired to either try new techniques or to expand on the skills I already have.

As I mentioned last week, I’ve got some giveaways in the planning stages for those who link up each week and also for those who stop by and take the time to comment.

Although past link ups are closed to new entries, the Stitchery Link Parties themselves and all the projects that were linked up that week are available to check out any time you’d like.  So if you didn’t get a chance to visit during a particular week, you can do so anytime you like.

I know that I’m certainly looking forward to being inspired again this week.

The rules are simple:

1. The project can be anything you’ve made as long as it includes embroidery stitches in some form. Such projects might be but are not limited to redwork, blackwork, goldwork, bluework, (etc), counted cross-stitch, crazy quilting, crewel, silk ribbon, pulled thread, hardanger and sashiko.

These projects do not have to be vintage or vintage inspired. All styles are welcome as long as it’s hand embroidered.

2. Link directly to your blog post, not to your blog home page.

The First Quilt I Ever Made

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on May 15th, 2015

Over the coming two weeks, to coincide with Spring Quilt Market, Amy over at Amy’s Creative Side is hosting the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival where quilters from around the world can show off their quilts.

I’m going to start out by saying that I would never expect to win any prizes with this quilt; not for construction or quilting or even for style. And to be perfectly honest, that’s the reason I’m sharing it.

Allow me to explain. The quilt pictured below is the first quilt I ever made.

Grandma's and Grandpa's Fiftieth Wedding Anniversary Quilt

Back of the 50th Anniversary Quilt

It was made for my maternal grandparents 50th Wedding Anniversary in January of 1987. I started the quilt early in 1986 so that it could be finished and mailed to arrive in time.

You see, we were posted to Lahr, West Germany from 1984 to 1988. Making this quilt was my way of taking part in the celebrations from afar.

I had never made a quilt before. I had no idea how to go about making one and no one to ask. I can’t even remember now how I came up with the idea for it. I may have seen it in a craft magazine or perhaps a book I got from the base library.

The fabric used was solid color broadcloth because that’s all that was available.

I made paper patterns, pinned them to the appropriate fabric and cut out the pieces for each block.

On the center snowball block, I embroidered my Grandparents’ names. (The base store where I bought the fabric didn’t have any gold broadcloth so I used that bright yellow instead.)

Embroidered blocks on 50th Anniversary Quilt

Surrounding Grandma’s and Grandpa’s block were blocks with their children’s and their spouses names. Next came the grandchildren (and spouses) and great-grandchildren.

Dave's and my block

This is Dave’s and my block.

Each generation’s snowballs had different color centers.

In a way, the quilt is a memory frozen in time.  Since the making of it, both my grandparents and an uncle have passed away.  There have been births, divorces, marriages and remarriages.

Separating the snowball blocks are plain white squares that I hand quilted with a rose.

Hand quilted rose

On some of the blocks, it’s even difficult to tell that is a rose.

Back of the quilted rose

Here’s one of the roses as seen on the back of the quilt.  At the time, I didn’t know that the thread should have passed between the layers of the quilt when I moved from section to section while quilting.

The batting was one of those polyester bats that came in a bag.

I had no idea how to bind it. To be truthful, I didn’t even know what binding was. I simply made a wide border that folded over to the back and was hand stitched in place.

Wide Border slip stitched to the back

Now when I bind a quilt, I use a ladder/invisible stitch to sew the binding to the back of a quilt. But back then, I used a slip stitch.

By now you may be asking yourself why I’m posting to link up to the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival where there will be hundreds of beautifully executed, hand-crafted quilts to check out.

After my grandmother passed away in 2005, my mother mailed me the quilt. When I spoke with Mom on the phone after I received it, I mentioned how sad I was that they hadn’t used it.

Mom asked wherever I’d gotten that idea. I replied because it looked almost new.

She went on to assure me that the quilt had been on Grandma’s and Grandpa’s bed for many years; it had just been very carefully cared for.

I found myself crying… knowing that they had indeed slept under it.  It had been loved!

I decided to share the quilt and the story behind it so that if there is someone out there who is considering making a quilt for a loved one, it may seem overwhelming after looking through all the quilts that will be on display. You may be tempted to throw up your hands and say, “I could never make anything like that.”

And perhaps at this time, you may not have the skills to complete some of the more intricate quilts. You may not even have what you think are the required tools. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t make a quilt that will be loved and treasured by those you are making it for.

There was a huge gap in time between when I made this quilt and when I took up quilting as a hobby in 2008. Back then, there was no such thing as rotary cutters, rulers and cutting mats. All I had was the basic tools… paper, pins, fabric, scissors, thread, needles, a bottom of the line sewing machine and the desire to make something for two very special people in my life.

If you have that desire too… then take whatever skills and tools you have right now and make a quilt for someone you love. They, like my grandparents, will look past any imperfections and cherish it simply because you made it.

How to Unpick a Line of Quilting Without Breaking Threads

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on May 13th, 2015

When I was quilting my Sampler Table Runner I had to unpick some of the quilting because in a section where I was stitching in the ditch, I missed the ditch.

Actually, there were a few times when I had to unpick so during one of those times Dave and I made a short video to show you the simple trick I’ve learned to help unpick or un-sew those areas without breaking the thread so that you can get back to a section where you can start quilting again.

Reverse sewing is not on anyone’s list of favorite things to do but I hope this video will make it easier the next time you’re faced with a line of quilting that just has to come out.

This technique also works when you’ve run out of bobbin thread or for some reason either the top or bottom thread has broken.

****************

On another note… on Monday I drew the name of the lucky winner of the Earth Blessings Fabric Panel that I was giving away during the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Event.  I announced the winner on the giveaway post but in case anyone missed it:

Winner of Earth Blessings Fabric PanelWinner of Earth Blessing Fabric Panel - comment

When I clicked on Toni’s name in the comment, I was in for a really fun surprise.  It turns out that she is a very successful children’s author.

I’ve mentioned before that many years ago, I started out writing for children.  And while my writing has taken a different direction of late, I still love reading children’s books.  I do hope that you’ll take a moment to visit Toni’s site and have a browse through.  I know that I’m going to be looking for her books the next time I’m at the bookstore.

Thank you so much to everyone who entered!  I was touched beyond measure by all the blessings that everyone shared.   I didn’t get a chance to reply to all the comments but I did read each one and felt myself blessed simply by reading them all.

Life has gotten a little busy here but over the next few days, I’m going to be catching up on replying to comments made on all my most recent posts.

Wishing you all a wonderful, heart-centered day with much Aloha!

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #5

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on May 11th, 2015

Sometimes we decide to embroider a pattern simply because we love it and then it sits in a box or wherever we keep our finished embroidery pieces because we don’t know what to do with them.

Yesterday while shopping for the black background fabric for my Spring Bloom project, Ye Olde Fabric Shoppe was having a Mother’s Day Special.  For every $25 worth of fabric you purchased, you could pick out one fat quarter from any of the baskets in the shop.   Do you know, it took me longer to pick out that one free fat quarter than it did for our middle daughter to make all of her purchases combined!

Finally I chose this fabric.

Pretty Floral Fat Quarter

First because it’s pretty.  But second because it could be paired with so many of the vintage floral patterns that I’ve shared in the past.  It would be perfect used to frame this Baby Face Rose pattern.

And depending on the colors you used to stitch it with; the pattern that I’m sharing today.

Workbasket Pattern for Butterfly Flower WreathThe framed embroidery could then be turned into a cushion or a small table topper… maybe even a lovely tote bag.

This vintage Workbasket pattern can be downloaded as a pdf here.

Spring Bloom of Another Kind

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on May 10th, 2015

For the past few weeks, I’ve been sharing some photos of the spring blooms (both here on my blog and on instagram) that have begun to appear in our area.  Today I have some Spring Blooms of another kind to share.

Shortly after I opened my Instagram account, I discovered and started following bellacaronia.  She was sharing photos of her first line of fabrics that she has designed for Windham Fabrics.  

It’s called Spring Bloom and while all the fabrics in the line are gorgeous, there was one in particular that caught my eye. I decided then and there that I was going wait until it was released and even if I had to order it on-line and pay international shipping I was going to have some of it.

Well it turns out that the fabric came to me in the most fun way possible!   From April 20th to May 2nd several bloggers took part in the Spring Bloom Blog Hop.   Every day of the hop I would visit the blog whose turn it was to showcase what they had made with Spring Bloom.  I was amazed and inspired by the different projects each blogger shared.

They were also each hosting a giveaway for an entire fat quarter bundle of Spring Bloom!   You can bet that I entered every single one in the hopes that I would win.

I was so excited when I received an e-mail from Cindy over at Live a Colorful Life saying that I had won her giveaway!

Close-up of Spring Bloom Fat Quarter Bundle

That gorgeous bundle of fabricy goodness above arrived on Friday.

Anyone who knows me or who has been following me for any length of time, knows that I love bright, cheerful fabric.  And this Spring Bloom fabric is all of that and more!

I immediately introduced the bundle to my vintage Singer 15-91 so they could begin to get acquainted.

Spring Bloom fq bundle sitting in front of my vintage Singer 15-91

The bundle looked so pretty sitting there that it took me a whole day before I opened it… though I did “page” through the fabrics several times.  :)

But once I decided what I was going to make now that I had not just one of the fabrics in the line but all of them, it was just a matter of going shopping for background fabric.  Here you can see each of the fat quarters fanned out in a circle on top of the black fabric I chose.

Spring Bloom Fabric fanned out on black background fabric

I also have a small project planned for that first fabric I fell in love with.   And I’ll be sharing that just as soon as I get it finished.

In the meantime, if you would like to see the stunning pillow and Sew Together Bag that Cindy made with the fabric she received from Windham check out her Spring Bloom Blog Hop post here.  On her post, you’ll also find a list of all the other blogs that took part in the hop.  Be sure to check them out too.   I can guarantee you will find something to inspire you.

You’ve probably guessed by now that I am super excited to get to play with this gorgeous Spring Bloom fabric and I just want to thank Amanda Way Caronia (bellacaronia), Cindy from Live a Colorful Life and Windham Fabrics for giving me that chance!

ALYofF May Goal – Forest Friends

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on May 7th, 2015

I had the hardest time choosing my “A Lovely Year of Finishes” Goal for May and then I realized that it only made sense to choose the one that I already had everything I needed to finish.  So even though this isn’t my oldest UFO/WIP, I’m going to be working on my One Big Cabin quilt that I completed the top for last fall.

Raccoon, Owl, Squirrel quilt top and backing

The backing fabric isn’t quite wide enough so I’ll need to piece that.  I hope to have that accomplished and be ready to start hand-basting this weekend.

When I was quilting my little Christmas Mouse wallhanging I really liked the way the hand quilting with perle cotton made the plum pudding and calendar stand out, so I’ll be hand-quilting around the squirrel, owl and racoon as well as adding some embroidered details to them.

I haven’t quite decided how to quilt the log cabin style blocks or the bottom border.  But in the cream colored blocks, I will be free motion quilting leaves like the ones I practiced on my Sampler Table Runner.

The binding strips are sewn together so once the quilting is done, I’ll be ready to trim and bind it.

Finishing this by the end of the month is going to be a challenge because I have several other projects including some tutorials that I also want to get finished this month so I can share them here on the blog.  Not to mention, we’ll be planting our garden as well.  May is going to be a very busy month!
