|snowball blocks in different configurations|
This week with it's snowstorms, was distracting for sewing. I have only three things to show...
I finished up some already cut snowball sections, and if you'll notice they are not all like the others!
Some have color in the corners, some have color in the center sections. I kind of like them together, especially in black and white. I might even have to do a little study of just black and white ones like this.
I got distracted by putting scraps away and sewed the smallest ones into this red piece... very soothing and meditative while listening to my book on disc.
|it's about 10" square, maybe ones of different colors together?|
|"Mama! What's THAT?" barked Milo loudly|
This year was the coldest, just after the 5th snow of October...
|Mamas follow the kids sometimes driving them from house to house!|
"this one, and this one,... ummmm and THIS one!" said the first
the second one needed encouragement to reach in and choose, and the first one said, 'I'm waiting for you derek!" (places to go, things to do...) I said, he'll be with you in a moment, he's making a decision! First boy looks around and says, "your house is not even a little bit scary!"
I don't know if that was good or bad but replied, " that's the way we like it"
|plastic flamingo perished in the cold apparently|
I did all the straight line quilting with the walking foot, and am now filling in with free motion and metallic threads. the more I quilt the more it needs...
I stopped and looked for a wild striped binding but nothing showed up well, so I settled on a mottled purple. It wants finishing.
I had to get out the big iron and thought I'd share how I control the chord... a fabric napkin holder!
I have many tops to be quilted now, so that may be what takes up my sewing time, but the actual quilting has become a bit stressful physically, not as much fun as making blocks or designing a top.
