Seams on Monday


I've got most of my seams done on this block over the weekend...


It's coming along...


I was hoping that I would be finished this block by today, the last day of winter...


But it appears as if there's going to be a Spring snow no matter what I was hoping...

Happy Monday everyone!

Such a beautiful block. So full of feeling. And the owl is just perfection.

I love your snowflake and icicle seems! Do you use a template of some sort to make them so exact?

Wendy said...

This is such a beautiful block! Your owl is just a stunning boy! And I am in love with the snowflake seams, just a wonderful block altogether. Thank you for sharing.

I Pinned the piece straight away, even tho it's not finished, because I wanted to show your work off to my Pin embroidery community immediately! It's so so beautiful! Every detail is so elegant - so detailed, but tasteful. Detailed, but not overdone. And your colour choice is masterful!
You'll make a convert of me to CQ yet!

Love those colors, they are just amazing. And your crewel work is so exact. Spring has come here too, so I guess if we want a Winter snow we'll have to just dream it.

Rachel said...

One of those seam treatments looks just like dried angelica heads - gorgeous!

Erica said...

That is just exquisite Susan. The detail is breath taking.

Maureen said...

Scrumptious!!

Moonsilk Stitches said...

Your icy seams are gorgeous! Precise yet natural. wow.

Suztats said...

I love the seam treatments! A wonderful variety, that suggests snowflakes, rock walls, and hoar frost. A lot of stitching, but totally cohesive. Beautiful!

I love, love, love this block. It captures winter so perfectly and so beautifully. I especially adore your owl.

Allison Aller said...

I think I have just figured out that what you are doing is crazy quilting with the aesthetic of Japanese embrodiery....such fine attention to detail on a truly concentrated scale...this is just awesome, Susan.

I just LOVE this block, Susan. Mr. Snowy. the tree, the snowflakes, all are just beautiful. How long did it take to sew those beads onto the lace? Wow!

Vicki W said...

Oh gosh, I love the colors of this peice.

Catherine said...

Oh my! You just simply amaze me!! I love it all, but something about the seam in the third picture just makes me go, "wow".

Absolutely stunning! I love the warmth of the colors, at the same time, you feel the cold:) Darby

The owl was already great but those seams - oh my! I am a fan for life, your work is just so gorgeous. It must have given you enormous pleasure to create such a beautiful thing.

Mary said...

Oh, my Lord! This is spectacular - the colors are perfect, just enough sparkle, so many beautiful bits to looks at! I cannot imagine ever having either the vision or the patience to make that happen.

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely things with us.

Lorraine@creativedaily said...

Your seam treatments are just wonderful Susan. Your choice of threads set the theme. Love the seam treatment with the icicles - what have you used behind the beads? Have not seen it before.

Gorgeous work!
Balanced, full of atmosphere, quiet, elegant, beautiful colors.

Hi Susan,
Not sure if you remember me. We met at the CQ Adventure in Connecticut. I'm the Jersey girl who now lives in Rhode Island (ugh!!!). Anyway, I have to tell you how much I love your work. It is absolutely spectacular, gorgeous, beautiful -- all that and more. Thanks for posting the photos. Hope all is well with you and yours,
Marilyn
