Finally I got back to my wool applique eggs – trying to get at least one done for Xmas – either to hang on the tree or to eventually have enough to fill up a bowl for a decoration. Each egg has four sides, you can either make them all the same or change them up – I imagine you could even just have one side decorated to show and the other three plain. I will do the stitch work on these and then decide if it will be four or one.
I used a little glue to hold in place and seeing as these are little pieces the tweezers came in handy.
I said I didn’t have any Christmas decoration up and went into the bedroom to get something and remembered I had the wool applique from last year that I made stored away and hung it up in the sewing room as I have something else hanging where I had put it last year.
Murrieta Stars from Thursday night — besides working on this I need to get back to my Round We Go – the challenge was 4 circle stars a month and I only got done with one in November – I guess it is good I wasn’t “officially” working with any group on it.
One of my Black Friday purchases arrived this one from The Fat Quarter Shop – I had ordered one more piece of fabric that was clearance but it didn’t come in the package and they had subtracted the amount off of the total so I assume they no longer had it – I had checked off the box that said no need to contact me – these are for nothing in particular 1 yard each and I’m very pleased at how well they go together – although I had not planned a project for them I do believe these with another gray and a red would be enough for a small quilt I bet. I thought the quilt on the cover of the book was rather neat and easy looking – another “maybe” next year?
And well it has been almost two weeks for the ferns in the house – well 2 weeks for one and a week for the other and I am sweeping up piles of dried leaves already LOL – these are not going to last long I bet. I will give them a good watering tomorrow – I think I will do that on the porch and and spray them off good – and then when they dry a little bring them back in – then it will be cold by Tuesday so no more outside showers for them. I went ahead and ruffled the plants on the underside to have more of the dried stuff fall off and ended up with a dustpan full of them when I swept them up. The new roof on the house and the shop is done! Thank goodness I don’t know if I could have handled one more day of so much noise! It was dark when they got done – I will take a photo tomorrow I haven’t even gone all around looking at it finished – it was too dark, Mike was out there a lot though and all is well.
