Well I guess almost everything in the sewing room that is going on. I made progress on quite a few on the rainy Sunday that we had.
The shawl folded in half so I could measure it and see where I was – it is supposed to be 90 inches so about 2/3’s finished then will have to square it up a bit – what is that called when you get done with a yarn project and it is uneven? I have totally forgot which shows how often I actually ever finish anything with yarn lol – I know you get it wet and tack it to the carpet or wherever to let it dry and hope it is now even!
Hertfordshire Quilt the center glue basted – after a few mistakes were found I got this much all folded around the papers – I had made the squares in the corners 2.5 inches instead of 2 (I was adding seam allowance by mistake!) and the little skinny half piece at the end of each row I forgot to reverse and had to do those over. I need to use something stronger for the paper in this quilt for the EPP — right now I am using one sheet of freezer paper, I have tried two pieces ironed together once in the past and I think it worked but I don’t mind buying a package of lightweight card stock – what do you use for EPP when you can not purchase ready made templates that are made out of light weight card stock like what you get at paper pieces – I like the weight of those – I find Sue Daley’s templates for the Round We Go pattern a little too stiff for my fingers but I like how when you glue baste the papers come out easily on her papers. I know some of you save the magazine subscription inserts in magazines and they would work but I do not get magazines so I do not have any.
I put one row on my little design wall and carried it to the living room to work on while a movie was being watched.
the movie was – The Accountant with Ben Aflack I got one side done. I didn’t attach the squares to that row on the top left I am going to do each row first and check measurements and then add the squares.

A couple more of the leafy areas appliqued in place for Morning Glory – the brown branches will be appliqued when the green is in place and then the acorns.
Work on Murrieta Stars was done on Saturday night and rolled down on Sunday
And rolled down and ready to do more – hard to believe it is at the end here – this one did go very quickly. I won’t be able to reach this all comfortable so will reach in about half the width and work all the way across and then roll it down one more time and finish it up – next week be done? Getting close to 90 hours in this now.
