Well, we finally have winter here . Not a huge blizzard, but snow with winds that caused white outs and sub temps. Great for staying inside and sewing. And I think I needed that to get some things done.
My first finish for 2016! It's hard to see the stitching because it's black on black and in the ditch - HA. Yeah, hard on the eyes at times, but my Ott light is a huge help.
And as much at the front is scraps, so is batt and binding and backing - that fabric is all used up! Well, I think a couple of squares went into the barrel.
Not sure why this one came out so orange because it's the same fabrics as the little one. But my 2nd finish for 2016. This one I did just machine stitching with 'in the ditch' and some lined quilting in the black border.
The backing again was a piece just large enough (had to piece the hanging sleeve) and used up! After I saw this photo, I so changed that label as it looked too much like a diaper to me.
I cut some scraps for leader/ender spool blocks. I'll use the RSC16 to work these.
Here's the few I managed to get done while working on my Let's Book It blocks.
And when you been away from the machine for a while, you make mistakes. Even though I laid these right out in order, I still put a few together wrong - geesh!!
Eventually I managed to get half the blocks sewn together. The original pattern sets them 6 x 6 (no border) for a 72" quilt, but I am setting them 4 x 5 blocks and will add a border for a lap size.
And Bella has decided that it is OK to sleep on the 'half' couch that has been moved. She is scared by winds and just kind of collapses after a nervous breakdown. Moe has been brave and done his property patrols in these storms. Where he has been napping when he comes in - don't know - you never know where you will find him.
BUT they will have to fend for themselves today because it is going to be nicer weather, so my SIL and I are heading out with a friend ................
We're doing it again!
