Lucy Boston week 104…grand finale

good afternoon! we are nearing the end of the day over here…hopefully i can squeeze in enough time to finish up some machine quilting…we’ll see what happens with that.

if you have not already heard…or seen over on instagram or facebook…Lucy’s Summer Cottage is officially finished. I quilted, bound, and washed her…had her all ready for a photo shoot outside, but it has been raining. So we’ve put her up in the shoppe and maybe in late July we’ll get a chance to take some pictures.

i do have a few for you though…this was fresh out of the dryer. it shrank up to be simply cozy…truly perfect for a summer cottage!

Lucy’s Summer Cottage

She is up in the shoppe if you are in the area…she’s always up for a visit…as is her civil war sister!

Both Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses are on display in the shoppe…we do also have some of the block kits still available…but they are selling out fast.

i have other projects in the works…and about 15 minutes ago…thought of another project that i’m going to add to the list…never a dull moment…however, the next few i think will be framed pieces….far more doable and who doesn’t love a little quilty piece framed?

so…this will be the final Lucy Tuesday post…if you would like to start from the beginner 100+ posts ago…they have their own category…be sure to check it out below.

otherwise, i’ll be back later this week with my frothy yoyos…(they are so scrumptious…i just LOVE ’em!)…it is framed (of course!) and uses shirtings (of course!) and each shirting is different (of course! cuz you know i love low volume!) and i’ll have it kitted so you can frame it or stuff it or whatever…

(i also finally got my birthday present at the MN Quilt Show…a CRAZY QUILT! and you guessed it…it is here at the shoppe…to inspire you to get started on your own. it has the perfect-est feather stitching along with some ribbon embroidery, basic embroidery, and fun motifs. i’m hoping to put together crazy quilt packs with some fancy fabrics, threads, ribbons, lace, buttons, embellishments, beads, and other little fun things…all in good time. we do have a selection of the most amazing stitch books…like, literally, WOW!)

okay…i’d better get back to my machine quilting. hope you have a wonderful afternoon! i’ll be back with some pictures of Minnie (the crazy quilt has the name “Minnie” stitched on it) along with in-progress shots of a few of my on-going projects.

Now before i say good-bye to Lucy Tuesdays, i would like to thank everyone who has been following along…it has been so much fun seeing the progress made from week to week (or month to month depending upon life) and chatting with you when you’ve popped into the shoppe or seen us at a show. We’ll be sure she comes along with us this fall…so if you can’t get into the shoppe…you can catch us at a show.

happy stitching…i’ll be back soon with some new goodies!
