Hello! It’s finally my day for the Road Home Row Along!
This Row along is hosted by Seams to be Sew and Sew Incredibly Crazy. The idea is to create a row that reminds you of home! I chose to do my row about Maine. And since I was working on this all summer, and the campers have been on the road… I took that as good inspiration!
To represent Maine I included:
One of the Maine slogans (of course!), blueberries, northern lights (stars), Pine trees, chickadee, and the moose!
I made my row using some cotton applique and some wool applique, but use your own preferences.
I had dmc floss and perle cotton 12 to make a basic blanket stitch for most of the applique. And I added some bullion knots in a few places for fun ~ see around the tire and windows?
and then wove it in both directions with the long tail of the perle cotton to make it look more substantial and like a woven clothesline.
If you use the eye end of the needle to weave it through, it’s much easier!
Free for a limited time.
You can find the Pattern on Craftsy
in My Shop!

TULA COLORING BOOK GOES TO BARB WHO WROTE:
The coloring book would be an awesome gift for 14 year old granddaughter! When I think of Maine, I think of trees, fishing, and insect repellent–lol, probably comes from reading certain mysteries. The use of wool for the applique is a great idea! Thanks!
DEAR DAUGHTER SUBSCRIPTION GOES TO JOAN WHO WROTE:
I must admit…this row speak to my heart! I love love love it! Your BOM looks fabulous. That would be my choice if I was lucky enough to win. But I’ve already won…I found a new blog that I just started to follow.;-)
ANITA GOODESIGN CD GOES TO RACHELL WHO WROTE:
I have a new embroidery machine, so I would love to use it more! A design CD would be wonderful!
