Jacob's Stairs

I finished a quilt today. I added a few beads and some quilting with embroidery floss. I came across a tiny little antique key while I was moving my sewing stuff into the new studio space and so I included it in the lower left part of the blue. I’ve hung it on the wall in my freshly painted kitchen where the turquoise batik comes pretty close to matching the wall. I don’t know if I will keep it there or not but I like it so far.

I was fighting a bad case of the ick last week and feel much better after a restful day Sunday. So that is a good thing indeed!

Tomorrow I’m going to visit my local yarn shop and see what I can find in the way of sock yarn. Melody has inspired me again and I am really curious to see what all they have now, I haven’t been there in quite a while.

I’ll be out of town most of the rest of the week and I’m hoping that knitting some socks may make the time go a little faster. Of course I could take along a quilt and do some hand quilting, that would also work. I’m just not great at sitting still for very long without something to do.


  1. Ooooh Myyyy Gosh, this piece is lovely! I am in awe of the way you applied the beads. It is crazy lovely.

  2. This is just a bright spot on the wall. Looks so nice! Like the beads too.

  3. the beads were a great addition on this one.

  4. The little beads are such a cute touch. Glad you're starting to feel better too =)

  5. I love this, so free and simple. How fun to just let go and play.
