Happy Tuesday! I was lucky and got an overtime shift yesterday. A busy day, and I was floated, but I am happy to have gotten the day. Above is a start...a quilt that was in my mind all last year! I have two rows cut out, and these above blocks are stitched. This is Country Threads block of the month from last year. I find that I like to have the whole pattern/or all the BOM kits, and then I can just go for it! (Thanks, Elaine Adair, for that bit of wisdom some years ago...)
I have finished hand quilting and binding these mug rugs. A fun, portable project.
And...another estate sale! Our neighborhood has had three in three weeks!! I found this little tiny rocker...is it meant to be a pin cushion? Ideas? I would like to recover the little cushion part...
And a vagues photo of a string hot pad. Take the tiniest slivers, mash them all up, press them down firmly with lots of starch, and then just sew over the top until it all melds together! I was cutting neutrals, so that is why it is made of neutrals!!! So that is what I have been up to, which is not really too much...
