Work in Progress Wednesday - The Big Pear Finish

The last of the 12 pears is the biggest.  I have enjoyed stitching these pears.

Now that I am finished stitching all of the pears, I need to finish finish them into the pear shapes. This is one of my 17 in 2017 projects. The free patterns are available at Samplers and Santas.  

This week I also worked on the scrappy cat quilt.  I pieced the batting and pin basted the three layers together.  I need to buy a walking foot for my Janome PJ-100 sewing machine.  I purchased the machine in Japan, so I should be able to purchase the walking foot.  As soon as I do, I will try quilting in the ditch.


  1. Hi Pamela i am loving these,if i didnt have so much on my to do list i would be tempted to make these,well done xx

  2. I like these little stitcheries. I always admire cross stitch. I haven't done it in years. I used to use waste canvas and stitched on EVERYTHING.

  3. You have a lovely collection of pears. For some reason the ones with text are extra attractive. I think cross stitch and lettering go so well together.

  4. What a wonderful last motif. I like it.
    All the 12 pears are looking great.
    Best wishes Manuela

  5. Great progress for your 17 in 17! I'm looking forward to see them all pear shaped.

  6. That's a beautiful set, congratulations.

    I'm inspired.
