From machine quilting that is – how oh how do you machine quilters tolerate the noise of machine quilting for hours on end – or maybe you don’t quilt hours on end – I don’t know – I just know 90 minutes or more in the morning and again in the afternoon is about all I can tolerate – I’ve done five days in a row now and I just do not know if I will touch the machine today even though I want my room back in order and Hopscotch finished!!
Here is what I had done at the end of yesterday morning – I took it to the floor to trim the edges – half way finished – hallelujah!!
The back – so far only found one little area that I had to fix where a thread got messed up.
I got back to the machine to tackle the remaining area and left this much to do still today. And I just do not know if I will touch it!!
So for Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy’s I think I will take some quite time with a movie in the afternoon and work on my Scrappy Baskets that I have prepped (last week) and haven’t touched since I got that darn big Hopscotch quilt taking up so much of my time. I am also linking to Quilting is More Fun Than Housework and Love Laugh Quilt.
They can join these 5 other baskets up on the wall
One last leaf to stitch down and some embellishing and the Snowman stitchery will be done. I will try to get that done today at some point also – probably before I tackle a basket as this is so close to a finish now
And I might just enjoy a few more of these today too – time to bake some more!!
Craftsy is having a 12 day of Christmas sales – Sale ends Monday the 12th of December. Don’t know what the sale will be day to day so stop and check if you wish. And just ignore these messages if you are not interested! Yesterday was Top 200 classes under $20, more kits and supplies 40-60% off – check out the quilt kits more sales going on there all of those sales might still be going on or maybe something new – the yardage in some of those kits is pretty good if you don’t like the pattern you might like the fabric.
