Just a little one! I have been hand piecing so much and hand quilting, raking outside and so much work can get my fingers aching that I changed it up a little bit yesterday and was piecing a small quilt – I will add a border to it to make it a little bigger. I had four extra pieces leftover so for now I put them in the corners – this fabric is from the fall 5 inch charm set that I won last week mixed with 5 inch charm pack of white that I had. Just something small I will try to get it to be about 48 x 60 inches. I think I have a green that will work out for the border or a brown – or maybe both for two borders – I might decide to go through the scraps and find some more pieces to mix in with this to make it bigger before borders – I know among all those scraps there should be some — this was from a pattern I saw on Pinterest
You remember when we were putting together the sewing room I told you that the cutting table can be cranked higher – here is a photo of the two tables together when one is cranked up – I was separating blocks into color groups and didn’t want to bend as my back was aching from the yard work the day before.
A close up of the crank – when you are not using the crank you can remove it so you are not bumping into it like I would do – maybe you wouldn’t?
I could have cranked the table up just a little more I realized later – I’m next to it to you can see how high the table an go – I am just under 5’8” inches so this works out so good!
Me next to the desk table which is basically the same height as the other when it is not cranked up – you see how much I would need to bend!!
When the tables are even next to each other – just a tad off but not much.
For Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy I will be working on Murrieta Stars – it is coming along so nicely and quickly now – I’m glad I decided no flowers to quilt! This grid shows up so much better. Friday nights work here – I’m also linking up to Quilting is More Fun than Housework —
Saturday nights work here and for Sunday I will be cranking it down I think and starting on the next side. I might do a few hexies as well and maybe some machine work as well.
