But before I get into that… let’s back up to Sunday the 29th….
I spent all day Sunday Slow stitching and early Monday morning finished it all up!!!
Leaving my frame empty!
I made Connie and her daughters and grands these cute little mug rugs too! She liked them 😀
I used Messenger photo app to take this cute photo on New Years Eve….
And snapped one last photo of our Christmas tree from this year…
My honey got the “fish vendor cart” we had bid on in a silent auction in the town where Connie lives… but the auction wasn’t over until the Friday after we left last fall… so she has been taking good care of this cute item my honey and I were totally enamored with 🙂
The above quilt I donned the name Appalachian Delight quilt… using blocks called Bear in the Cabin that I did a tutorial on last year if you are interested in those bear claw variation blocks…
Above is a close up of the stencils I plan to use throughout this quilt… and below is a wide shot showing how wide the outer border is and those beautiful mitered corners too!
This is the pattern that goes on that wide boder… fits perfect and that was NOT planned 🙂
The backing is shown here and is wideback I purchased from an online company that went with the vibe of the front…
Here is my first corner to finish up close…
And here is all I have gotten stitched as I have enjoyed getting into a routine with this one…
My initials and the date are done in navy perle cotton in chain stitching… the rest is in burgundy hand quilting on the taupe and white fabric.
Linking this exciting chain of slow stitching events to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching HERE <<<
She is not feeling great today so come give her a visit and leave a healing comment for her! No fun being sick. She is also sharing some cool stories on her post plus there are other linkers sharing their stories too!!!
Then yesterday as I stitched… IT SNOWED here!!!!
We got a couple inches … covering all that grass in the end… and a mud slide occurred too on the road not far from our home… salt trucks were out last night and this morning the grass was visible through the snow so no issues should be found… just joy with the snow!!!
I started sewing on some curtains for our bedroom and my good bloggy friend Jill has lent her help to aid me along the way! The excitement of a new quilt on the frame leaves me not much to show but that they are ready to sew together 😀 lol!
I have been using my 2 week organizer almost every day since I started and am really loving the accountability of it… are you organizing your days for 2020???
Check out my new blog header and closing … and have a blessed 2020!
