Slow Sunday Stitching
I will be joining Kathy for some hand stitching time. I have my step-outs for our next quilt guild meeting for a program on various techniques of applique (I'm demonstrating reverse applique). So I thought I would put together a little piece that will incorporate all those techniques. This is a start and has some more work to go.
I did get in a few minutes with my machine. Not a lot of brown blocks to make for RSC15, but I love how this soft brown works in the wove heart. I won't be able to show you how I was going to put together the houses and stars made thru the year with RSC15 as I decided I would rather donate all my blocks to Sarah's group. They can have fun playing with them and I know they will quickly get used into a quilt that is sure to give someone much needed comfort.
Yesterday was our 'meet the artists' afternoon at the gallery and I hate to say, but the attendance was really poor. I know a lot was going on in many communities, but really disappointed guild members did not support us. The up side was a single Hall of Fame member (who traveled a long ways) came and in our chat, I found out she had a quilt frame for sale. Now I definitely have to move my sewing into that upstairs HUGE bedroom.
