How can I have patience for hand piecing and relax and when I take out the machine I seem to get very little done? Well ok, I have gotten some done but I don’t feel like it is going quickly and I tend to make more mistakes than when I do work by hand.
I have managed to get two smaller blocks done and attached together – that is it and I’m ready to call it quits and go back to my book! This much done – one for the front of a pillow and one partial for the back
So messy when I work. Two boxes of strings. I’m trying out my flower thread stand even though I don’t have a large cone of thread – I just wanted to try it out. I intend to mainly use this stand when I use my Janome as my thread tends to get caught on one little piece of the spool – it has a little knick on it.
I would rather be quilting but I promised myself to take at least a couple days off to get these fingertips feeling better – they are not real bad, just kind of rough – they actually heal pretty fast as long as I take a break from handwork.
It is finally above freezing today! still have snow on the ground out here in the shade – I’m sure a couple days of above freezing temps and it will melt – I think we are supposed to get rain on Monday that should take care of it as long as it isn’t sleet and snow!
I am going to have two messy boxes to clean up and put back in order when I get done with these pillows!
