Christmas QAL - Day 2
I thought I would get those cabin blocks assembled and the borders on. It cracks me up how that green pin-dot photos so bright - because it's not! Hopefully later today I can get this sandwiched and quilted. I have another quilt on the machine (home machine) being quilted right now and I really want to finish it. There is a bow with ribbon and leaves with berries to be added to this - might get to those tomorrow.
I don't know if you can make out the beads on this. White, blue, and gold beads (no red or green) and some tiny white star buttons. Much more to be added. These are all being attched individually with metallic thread - a dickens to thread thru that needle!!
Beading needles to be precise. And I broke two and have two very bent ones - that is my last package of beading needles so hope they hold out. This piece is very thick with seams - so (sew) very slow going with the handwork. I don't dare put this under the machine. I found I can see better working on this project at night with my little Ott lite helper, so this will wait for tonight to work on.
So I have to get back to that quilt on the machine - Christmas projects will wait for later. Thank you Joanna for being such a lovely hostess this weekend.
