Welcome to my blog where we are getting a light coating of snow at the moment… we will see how much we end up with… it is calling for 1 to 3 inches and we have 1″ so far 🙂
I focused on prepping for the QAL for the Boho Heart Pattern I am planning to make… as some 4 patches for that QAL are my new blog header. The rest of this weeks makings are here….
I made varying numbers of 5 different blocks… I am having so much fun working with these bright fun colors too ❤
I also photographed the mess my sewing room was in….
I have now opened and macro sorted each box in that room… today I hope to work more in that room 🙂 For now my sewing machine stays in the living room but I hope to get it out in the near future!!! But Y’all! I HAVE A LOT OF FABRIC!!!! lololol
I did order some fabric for new napkins that coordinate with our graphite base color in the kitchen/living room ….
Here I tested my Aurifil grey 28 wt thread to see how it would look then on the right is the design I decided on… the goal is that once washed the edges will fray as in the first photo before I cut them to size… 10″ x 18″ gives 4 folds and it will look like this…
This is the best representation of all the color of this graphite fabric and thread together too 🙂 I have done all the machine sewing on Cleopatra my 319w Singer 🙂
But my favorite job this week was finishing Appalachian Delight quilt and washing and drying… and sleeping under it!!!!
Here is my collage photo… but let me share a few extras with you…
I hand quilted a yin yang on the top center of the wide border….
I signed this quilt when I started it in 2020 thinking it would be done then… but the Pandemic came along and time got lost…
I am linking this fun finish we really love sleeping under with Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching Crew HERE <<<< Shei s celebrating National Embroidery Month in Canada… is this a world wide celebration??? In the US February is known as Black History Month.
My goal to commemorate Black History Month is to listen to the unabridged audiobook Roots… I have been challenged by my son and his bride to be to re read this book and they enjoyed listening but it is 30 hours of listening… so I best get the next quilt on the frame as that is my best time to listen as I mindlessly quilt on a project… what is next on the frame you ask??? Why it is a quilt top Connie left with me .. more on that later !
Next week I will join Kathy’s embroidery celebration too though… other handiwork I did with my hands was to put on a Valentine commemoration on my nails…..
I really enjoy Color Street nail strips and how fun and easy and low maintenance they are!!!!
Hope you have a wonderful and productive week wherever you are in this world… we are seeing a decrease in some cases of Corona here in the US… hope you are too in your area of the world!
