This quilt really is moving along even though I keep thinking I should be done with it by now – I have really only been sitting at the machine with it for 4 days now – I can say I am almost 3/4’s of the way done!! this part shown is all the way done —
This much left to do on this half – and then I can say it is 3/4’s done for sure. I will get to this section this morning and then try to tackle the other side in the afternoon.
I have also been steadily working on the Snowman stitchery with wool as I sit and watch the news or other tv shows in the evening. Four more leaves to finish on the right side and then add the veins to them. In the book there is also a sprig of embroidery stems and mistletoe leafs above the bird – I do not know if I will add that part. This little hanging hasn’t turned out the best – but I’m not displeased with it totally. I have been neglecting other projects while I finish up these two projects that I show today – but I will get back to the Retro Air Ship Propellers, the Handful of Scraps Hexie quilt, The Scrappy Baskets, The Scrappy Stars and whatever else is laying around LOL and clean/organize the sewing room again – as soon as I finish these two!!!! It will be so nice though to have gotten more finished before the end of the year. Linking to Tweety Loves Quilting today.
I won this pretty butter dish in a give away while I was holding my own – this is from Summer at Summer Daisy Cottage – not a quilting blog – Summer is from Jamaica and has beautiful photography on her blog. Thank you Summer for the win! Speaking of give away’s I went to the post office today and got the packages mailed off to my winners – the post worker said give it a couple weeks for those that went out of the country and to Alaska about a week – so keep a look out for your packages.
