I have a lot of cleaning to catch up on, but I have a little "show and tell" to share!
|A few of my "stitching" friends have started a new hand sewing group and the first meeting was last Tuesday evening. It was fun to chitchat and do some sewing. The embroidery on the center block of Words To Live By is now complete--yay!!|
|The next day I had some time to go back and touch up the inking on all of the blocks.|
A nice sunny morning can do wonders for writing on your quilt!
|These are the 8 inch blocks that will go in the corners of Words To Live By.|
I've been able to do a little of the embroidery in the car and at the hospital,
but I still have a lot of sewing left to do on them.
|I worked on trimming the flying geese for the 2" Temecula Count Down to Christmas stars.|
These are officially the smallest geese I have ever made--maybe ever WILL make!
They measure 3/4" by 1 1/2"--cute!
|Once those little geese are taken care of, the stars go together pretty quickly.|
All of my components are ready for further instruction!
(24 stars, 140 four patches, 156 2.5" squares)
|I love the look of this month's Country Threads Chicken Scratch blocks.|
I chose a brighter red rather than the rust in hopes of cheering up my quilt.
|Hopefully, I will get the November Dixie Diary blocks sewn soon.|
I'm avoiding the set-in seams in the corners!
|Having the Red Cross blocks from The Blue and the Gray set up by the machine makes getting a few sewn easy when I have a little time.|
