I forgot to link up with slow Stitching Sunday, but I did work more on my 'Corona Village' piece. The cornerstone hourglass blocks are left overs from a prior project I worked on during this 'pause'. I chose a quarter, nickle and dime for my size circles representing when my son and I took both our change jars to a coin machine - my there was a lot of money! The circles are hand applique'd - I want to use different techniques in this piece. And I used scraps of the Kaffe Jelly Roll that was used in the three baby quilts that were born during this shut down.
We are still on lock down until May 15th - three more weeks to add to this - hopefully that is all, but I doubt it.
And I pulled another machine out to play with. Hey, it's a good time to make sure they are all in working order. This Singer 347 is a work horse - and heavy. I stole her back from the class room to do some binding work and I may even try quilting on this. The feed dogs drop and it goes fast - should do the job on some of those smaller quilts.
I always just sit at a machine for 15 minutes and then take a break. My breaks will be gleening my FQ totes. Any thing small or strip will be cut down into the barrel system. There is a small pile on the ironing board to start with.
And we are still having snow here in the NorEast - good day to sew.
Stay Safe and Health,
