Homestead Machine Embroidery Blocks

I am home from my trip to Kentucky, Ohio, and the Antique Roadshow.  Unfortunately, my cousin and I aren't rich but we are rich with good memories of the day spent in Cincy at the Roadshow.

I began working on some Homestead machine embroidery blocks today.  This is one of Anita Goodesign's new Special Editions.  It includes tree, animal, quilt, and building blocks.  I plan to do one of each and make a small sampler for a friend.  Later this evening I hope to begin the block with a hanging quilt.   My fabrics are brighter than the sample from Anita Goodesigns.  As many of you know, I am using up my stash and these were the colors I selected.  I'm liking it.  Blocks are 7" when finished.  It's good to be back in the studio after dealing with health issues and vacation.  I do have a few medical procedures scheduled this month but I'm hoping the end is near.

I hope you aren't near any of that flooding that has been taking place in AZ. Crazy weather. Your blocks are so beautiful. I love the design and the colors. Sorry to hear you are still having some health problems to deal with. Wishing you all the best. Hugs and blessings, Tammy

Glad you had a fun trip. I'm loving the machine embroidery. I didn't even know they could do that! The square looks great. Hope your health issues get resolved soon!

So sweet. Sounds like you had a good time away. I tried getting tickets for ARS when they were in the are either last year or the year before..no such luck. Hope you had a good time and I hope your health issues will soon be behind you:-)
