Well finally! She's doing something crafty!
I do put in a bit of sewing time daily but not enough to write about. Cutting up scraps, a little applique, quilting. I have to remember that I've set monthly goals! Here are the things I'm working on right now.
Ok Nadine and Connie! You caught me! As you can see, I guess I've started a new project. What is it? The 365 Day Challenge! No, I haven't made any plans past this. I've still got over a month (before the starting date I've set) to think about it, but I guess if I'm cutting out blocks this size already then that means I'm going to do it, right? Can't let this fabric go to waste! This is as far as my light colored scraps got me. Obviously I'm going to have to go buy more fabric. I guess this is going to be colorful because I'm working with what I've got so far and I don't have much in the way of beige, white or cream. Advice, advice! You're going to have to help me with this my friends!
Then I finished the applique border thingy that I think I'm making for the piano. But it isn't big enough so I'm making more blocks to expand the length. I'm playing this by ear and the first two blocks are baskets.
What has been the most fun is the quilting on the Wonky Word quilt! I decided to do the Baptist Fans and hand quilt a few every day. Still, this is going to be a long process! I'm using some varigated thread which is very nice and I love the way it shows on the colorful quilt. Usually when I quilt I try to keep my stitches pretty small but with this varigated thread, it comes up a different color every few stitches and I naturally seem to be quilting with longer stitches. Even the back comes out nicely! I stop to admire it so often that I don't get too much done!
