OMG for December

All this year I have been an enthusiastic participant in One Monthly Goal.  I am pleased that I have finished the stated goal each month. December is problematic because I don't know when I will be able to return to my studio with the full range of activities (selecting fabric, cutting, sewing, pressing, basting, quilting).

Thus my OMG is handwork: specifically, completing the embroidery for the 36 lily units in Coastal Lily. The pattern is by Minick and Simpson. The colorway I am making is by Thelma Childers. It was published in American Quilter, July 2015.  Each lily has three stamens. The anthers will be appliqued. The rest of the quilt is pieced. 

As I write this post I have 22 units finished. 14 to go. I am doing outline stitch with DMC 414.
I am listening to semi finalists for the annual Audie awards.  Here is  my setup.

  1. These looks like a nice project. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal.

  2. Wise choice! I think December is a lovely month for hand stitching. We've got a drizzly little rain here today and not too cold. Perfect for curling up on the sofa with some handwork and watching football with hubby. I've enjoyed watching all your finishes this year and celebrate such a fun milestone with you! I did well until July when live derailed me - not in a drastic way, just hectic :*).

  3. many don't realize how big a deal a bunionectomy is....glad to see you have something to do..i know you'll catch up fast once you are again vertical!


Thanks for stopping to read my blog. I can't respond to every comment, but be assured that I appreciate each one.
