Scandinavian Stitches!!!♥

    We were pretty much rained out all weekend!  So I tackled my new book Scandinavian Stitches by
Kajsa Wikman :))  I've had this book about a week and it's been driving me crazy.  I want to try so many projects inside.  I love her style and simplicity, bold colors and free motion stitching.

The project I really wanted to try first is the bird art quilt!
My attempt, and I am a complete beginner....

This mini art quilt was really fun.  I still have to master the free motion quilting thing.  I think I need to use a different foot on my machine.  So now I'm trying to decide what project of hers to try next!
My daughter made these cute little mice this weekend.  Her own pattern she tells me and it is.  She's eight.

I think there really cute :)

Also I stitched up this napkin this weekend, Chandelier oh yea!

And finally my finished octopus!  Lots of fun to stitch.
This was a stitch along, my first.  How fun to see every ones different takes and styles stitching this
guy.  Not sure what I'm going to get started on next, but I'm sure I'll
think of something ;)  Have a great week!
