My fabric arrived yesterday for my small snowman wall hanging that I plan to do – yes I do have room for a small wall hanging in the dining room on one side of a window – I have a quilt cupboard on the other side of the window – I don’t want a large hanging on one side as it might not look right on the wall without one on the other side of the window. Most of my pieces are now in place. The holly berries will be added later and there are some tiny leaves and berries to embroidery on later also. The embroidery embellishment always adds so much to it – the leaves will have veins added also.
I work on The Final Frontier almost every night here are a couple of the circles that I love – the puffiness that the quilting adds I love as well as all the colors in these squares/circles.
This was the area I worked on Tuesday night.
Other than pining the applique pieces down, I got one more hexie flower done for the medallion quilt and quilted in the evening like usual. Didn’t do a whole lot more besides that – I am reading a Jack Reacher novel and I do believe his books are getting worse with each one I read! This one is not holding my attention – it is called Make Me by Lee Child luckily I borrowed this one from the local library’s kindle selections and didn’t waste any money on it. I liked his books at first but this one is #20 or something like that and sometimes when an author gets to that point I think they should stop a series and start a new one – thumbs down on this one. One big bone of contention I have with this series– now made into movies starting Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher is that Tom Cruise is known to be about 5 foot 6 inches – kind of a small guy really – in the book Jack Reacher is about 6 foot 4 inches and 240 pounds of muscle – they really couldn’t match up an actor better to play this part?
