Unplanned days in bed meant not sewing... but I was so bored that I needed something to do...

So I went back to my Q4 list and found the tapestry crochet ornaments to do!

non-English pattern, but the schema is available treadyarknot

I had sooooo much fun making the first one (even if a little too big) that I decided that will be the detachable tree decoration I will include in many of my Xmas cards!
So I stitched up a bunch of them with thinner cotton, and I really love them!

Second project of my long Q4 list, done (project 6. on the list)!
Before getting sick, I was able to complete October block for the Americana QAL. A fun schoolhouse!
And last, but not least, I want to remind you that I am working on charity quilts,
and I would love your help!! 
Quilts are for a quilt drive to help the kids in the DC General Homeless Shelter. 
And you can help me by donating orphan blocks, partial blocks, or fabric (scraps, strips, leftover, uglies, whatever). 
If you are willing to mail them to me, I could use them to make more quilts for these kids!!! 
If you are up for a loving donation, please send me an email at tweloq[_at_]gmail[dot_com] or leave a comment here with your email address so I could give you my mailing address. I promise that your donation will be used to make some kids happy and feel more loved!! 

I have to say that sadly I didn't work on this project much in the last couple of weeks as I was trying to get ahead in the QAL idea. But I think that by the end of the month I may complete another quilt and finish another top!

How about you? What are YOU up to?
Link it here and share it with me!!


  1. Only a little of sewing happen here too. Too much other stuff needed to be done. Love your crochet. At least you manage a little bit.

  2. Sorry you have been unwell :( upside a bit of bed and hooking sounds like a good way to be on the mend, perhaps some Tim Tams for medicinal purposes of course hahahahahaha

  3. Hope you are better now. I love your crochet.

  4. Being sick is never fun, but at least you were able to get a project done. Hope you get back to sewing soon!

  5. Sorry to hear you have been ill. Hoping yoiu are well and stitching but those snowflakes look very festive - I'm sure friends and family were pleased to receive them. Thank you for participating in the FAL, on behalf of the 2016 global FAL hosts.


Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you!
Please share your thoughts on my projects with me!
