A Little Done

in Lucy Boston--Patchwork of the Crosses, quilts

Patchwork of the Crosses got looked at yesterday, down on the floor, fabric scattered.  Choosing colors for the next blocks.  These choices might not stay in this order – but for now.  I haven’t taken a stitch though since decided on what was next.

009

Instead I got busy and quilted two more of the blocks quilted on the square in the square quilt and then moved to the big frame and quilted for 40 minutes on the Bow Tie Medallion.   Starting to get sore fingertips though so once again I might need a break from quilting and do something else for a week!  I did buy two soft pillow forms and have plans to make a couple of extra large blocks with some strings (strips) I will have to see if the featherweight will cooperate with me to get that done.  The Janome still needs to be brought it – I will deal with that after the New Year.  In the meantime maybe I will get some pillows for the couch made this upcoming week – Plans right now just two scrappy string pillows.

Maybe instead of starting on the Sedona Star quilt I will get a block cut out for applique on the William Morris top instead – applique doesn’t bother my finger tips as I always use a metal stick on thimble or a leather dot.  We will see – not sure what the weekend plans are at this point!  Maybe we will do something on the spur of the moment – depends on weather of course!

I haven’t touched my sewing in a couple of days. I really feel like sewing today so will at some point. I need to pick threads for the next applique block on the Dear Hannah. The block is prepped but I didn’t pull the threads yet. Weather here is supposed to be really chilly, 29 for the low tonight.

Your progress is really shows. Sorry about the sore fingers….spirit is willing/flesh is weak thing sometimes. That’s why it is so necessary to have several projects going at once (my rationale, anyhow!). Hugs, D
