Stitchy Squirrel - a Mini Quilt FINISH!!!

After taking a bit of a bloggy break for the last almost month I feel like I can bounce back into the Blogging world, take it one day at a time and share what I've been working on with everyone.

A few months ago my awesome Step-Sister Sherry sent me an embroidery 'starter kit' and I've actually been really enjoying sitting on the couch and making some little things for the girls.   Miss S is completely in love with her little stuffed animal 'Special Kitty' and asked me to make a blanket for her a few weeks ago.  I thought that would be the perfect time to try out a combination of Stitching and quilting and then I even used some of my fancy stitches on my sewing machine to quilt the top of the quilt. 

Here is a little bit of a close up on the stitches and the quilting.  The quilt is 9.5 inches wide by 11 inches long - perfect for a beanie baby!

Would you believe I haven't taken a single picture of Kitty with her blanket but this was a picture that my daughter wanted me to take before we got started on the quilt.

Its my first real 'finish' of 2013 - its not a big finish but its a finish none the less!!  Next up I need to get back to work on my scrappy trip quilt and then we are starting a new BOM quilt at my guild next month.  So I do have some stuff to blog about and it will help get me out of the funk a little more!  

Thank you so much for stopping by - See you soon!
