Waiting for Snow
I've been just doing a few things each day as the change in weather really effects me. So taking naps here and there. I did get the doll quilts finished and took a day to do bindings. I'll share more on those on Saturday, right now Moe is taking his job of holding them down quite serious.
I switched my machines around so I can use my new Juki. Used it with the doll quilts, but I needed the blanket stitch on it so I could work on my 'Something New' and Book It wallhanging. Still haven't found my other packages of Steam a Seam2 and the weather has been too bad to ask someone to pick more up should they be near my LQS. BUT I am still a little further along.
This is the fourth try at the next step of the Relaxing Round Robin - a round with applique. I hate applique, seriously - I am just not good at it. I tried every method there is and different designs - this is just going to have to do. I will put either tiny yo-yo's or buttons in the flower centers and plan on doing some echo quilting with floss to make it a little more appealing.
And decided I better get the borders on the Goodnight Irene. I will do 2 or 3 more borders on this to give it more size as well as frame that center better.
I did get the fussy cut paper dolls and HSTs into blocks, but waiting to finish that one up next week. As you can see, we are all waiting for the next storm to roll in. If we should lose power (we have a generator and the plan is to keep the furnaces running) I have some hand work kitted and I'll enjoy some slow stitching. Please, be safe.......
