Mike took a photo of me quilting last night that I thought I would share – you can see I do not pay attention to anything but my quilting and the Ipad with whatever show I am watching! Working way over on the left side of the frame glad I was able to move on over, it gets a little warm when I am over in the corner. Back to brown hair – I couldn’t stand the gray/white one more month – I’m surprised I lasted 2 years – it made me feel so old.
One of the pretty multi colored circles.
All of these neutral hexies are now sewed into rows so next up the rows get stitched together. I do believe then I will take the large piece off the wall and I will have two areas of neutrals to stitch to the body – then start working on the many “flowers” that go around it. I am linking to Sew Fresh Quilts today and Quilt Fabrication: Midweek Makers and My Quilt Infatuation.
Quite a few zinnia’s to be cut and put in a vase. I choose my funky vase that I got out in Williamsburg many years ago at a Pottery place that my sister tells me is still in business but a new location. The vase was a reject as the sides had collapsed in at the top but for a dollar or whatever I paid for it I thought it was well worth the uniqueness of it. The zinnia plants have grown to about 5 feet and if I want more flowers they certainly needed to be cut – might get more before the weather chills off this fall.
I did work a little on the tote bag applique to practice my zigzag stitch – the machine did work so whatever I thought was a problem I guess after it rested for 6 months it went away LOL – I don’t think the witch is working out with the hair I gave it – after I had ironed it down I knew it didn’t look right but I thought maybe with black thread outlining it – it would be ok – it wasn’t so back to the drawing board with that. I don’t care for the really little zigzag stitch so I might change over to a tiny blanket stitch – now you can understand why I do not wait until the last minute – I’m not real good at tote bags and things – I just like quilting. I’ll show a photo after I practice a little more and get it figured out.
