Rustic Robots + a Monster

I have finally finished a present I promised to make my husband in February. The Rustic Robot quilt is complete! I learned several things during the making of this quilt. I hate working with homespun, though it was the perfect fabric for the look I was going for. I need to practice my machine quilting if I am going to try something other than stitch in a ditch. But it is very rustic, and very robot-tastic.

Love adorable rustic robots of love! They are RobotDog, LoveBot, and CrazyBot, in order. :)

It was very hard to finish because I got a new toy, and I am super into this Doodle Stitching embroidery that I posted about last time. I used my new toy to sketch up a few little doodles to stitch of my own. Here is my little monster guy that I stitched today. I have to figure out what I am going to do with them, other than basically sketching and then stitch-sketching. I have a super secret perfect messenger bag project I am planning, so perhaps that will involve a little monster or alien in the corner.

He was originally green, but I kinda like him in purple.
You can download a JPG of him and his little buddy the three eyed alien here.
Fun weekend!
