This HQAL (Hand Quilt-A-Long) update is not going to be about the project I chose for the HQAL – The Grandmother’s Garden. Grandmother’s Garden is laying dormant on the table behind the couch and although it has been calling to me, I have been ignoring it. She is in the same state as she was at the last update:
I have been working on the plan for the embroidery for each flower and will show that on a later update. I have seriously gotten the embroidery bug:
So this is what I have been working on. I will get to my Grandmother’s Flower Garden soon, I have just been floating to whatever project, media and skill that calls me at any given moment. It just seems to be what I need to do right now.
This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another. If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.

I’m also linking up with Kathy’s Quilts for Slow Stitch Sunday.
Hi ~ You really have been busy and your hand work is gorgeous on these embroidery pieces. That hair is fabulous! Love the ‘stem’ work too – are those little french knots? Miss Flower Garden can wait with pieces like these being created 🙂
Thank you! Those are colonial knots that I was practicing. I’ve been doing french knots for awhile, but the colonial knot is new to me.
OMG! Can you come teach me how to embroidery that beautiful of stitches! Hugs
Haha!! I’ll have to post my practice fabric!! These pieces are after TONS of practice!
Lovely stitching, all your projects!
You certainly do have the stitching embroidery bug! All your pretties are lovely. Love the lovely lady! As for your Grandmother’s Garden……she needs to be out on display, even if only in little flowers. =) It is so pretty.
Thanks so much! I’ll take her out tonight.
These are quite amazing! Grandma’s Flower Garden will wait patiently for you I’m certain!
Thanks! I just need to get back into the groove of stitching on her in the evening. I’ve been working on other things.
Your stitching is looking beautiful, I love the 3D effect 😍
Beautiful stitching, I’ll have to have a look at the San Francisco School of Needlework.
