The Past Week’s Progress

Not much quilting has happened here. Why? Well, there has been a bit of embroidery work on a hat from The Unofficial Downton Abbey Knits magazine. It is the hat from this combo:

Amazing Amy’s son is getting married on Saturday the 16th. Several months ago when we saw this, she had expressed an interest in the combo to go with her Mother of the Groom desk and protect her from outdoor wedding sun. Careful Carolyn said she’d knit it if someone else would embroider it. For some reason, I opened my mouth and offered.

Amy had already said she wasn’t sure that she wanted the flowers on the brim, so I embroidered the flowers on the crown and sent her pictures. After seeing them, she said she was sure of it, so I turned it over to her today. I don’t really have any good pictures to show you, but here are a couple. (Please note, I am awful at satin stitch.) And the pictures are pretty dark. IMG_1961 IMG_1962


Once Carolyn finishes the actual sweater, I will hope to get it embroidered in time for the wedding. So far, Amy says she only wants the embroidery around the sleeves. We will see how that goes.

The only really quilty thing I did this week was complete the first of the 2014 Designer Mystery BOM from the Fat Quarter Shop. I hope to finish the second block today before block number three arrives tomorrow or Tuesday. Actually, as soon as I complete this post I’m heading downstairs to do it.

  1. Beautiful hat and sweater. That will be stunning at a wedding. Can’t wait to see it completed.

  2. I think that hat looks gorgeous! And me has not touched her sewing machine for a few days now 🙂 At least since those mitered borders you saw on Twitter…
