Another circle star was cut out, glue basted and ready to work on yesterday while I was watching a Craftsy class on Cast Iron Cooking. I have always just purchased quilting classes but with the Craftsy Unlimited I thought I would pick a cooking show to watch and it was interesting and kept me company while I was busy selecting fabric and prepping. It is interesting looking through all the classes available that I would normally never think of buying – like the cast iron cooking – gardening shows too interest me but I wouldn’t buy them – Unlimited has it’s pluses – but I’m not sold on it yet – will I watch enough to make it worth while?
Sometimes I pick out a background fabric for these by laying all the pieces out on top – if I have two pieces this size it will work as these background pieces are odd sizes.
I liked it and so now I have the next one ready to work on.
The one I was working on the last 2 days joined the other finished pieces on the wall – the bottom row to the right is the one I finished. Linking to Esther’s Quilt Blog.
Next up is Pattern #4 – all the pieces and instructions come in this neat little evelopes.
The table was cleaned back up and
The boxes back on the shelf for the next time – when I finish the star that I prepped I will take a short break and work on another project – I am trying to rotate so I don’t get tired of them.
I switched out to the white cat mug that has been sitting on the shelf awhile for my tea – although pretty much the same as the blue mug this one has a handle that is a little thicker and the cat is on the opposite side of the mug.
The blue cat mug back up on the shelf with the others (more scattered throughout the house) I have a couple favorites that are very large and too big for hot drinks as the tea or coffee would be cold by time I finish but I do use them now and then for cold drinks instead although most of the time I have them on the sewing tables full of scissors and pens/pencils and small rulers.
Quilting from Sunday night on Handful of Scraps
The storms that came through Sunday night missed us – we had rain and thunder but no tornado’s – it got up to 60 degrees and then by Monday morning it was 42 and the wind howled from the north all day – nearing the end of January we have had snow flurries one day – maybe on the weekend the weatherman said but he expects no more than flurries are we going to have a winter with no snow – happens more often then getting snow around here – I’m not complaining because if we do we will get more than I want!
