This week most of my work on the longarm has been put on hold as I've been nursing a back problem that pops up from time to time.
I have managed to get a bit of sewing done as I'm ok in a seated position :)
First up was sewing one of the final borders for Down the Rabbit Hole. I held my breath as I pinned it onto the quilt, wondering if it would fit. Luckily, Sarah Fielke designs a pretty good pattern....
This morning I appliqued the final leaf to Down the Rabbit Hole!!
I also finished my Magnolia Mystery offered by Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs. This is the second mystery I've done thru' Meadow Mist Designs and Cheryl does a wonderful job!
I am going to hold off on quilting this one until I have the time to really have fun with all that open space.
I've also sewn my blocks for this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge....what a lot I've accomplished while off "sick"!
Here are my Squared Away blocks...
The block at the top of the picture actually makes my eyes glaze over a bit because of the fabric choices....but I'm leaving it in.
I also have my three birds done for the month....except for their legs, those will come in February hopefully....
Aren't they adorable!!
I do hope to get back to the longarm today as I'm actually working on one of my own quilts, Happy Days, which was the BOM offered by Sarah Fielke in 2016...
I hope my back continues to improve as I have signed up for the Robbie Burns 8k, which is run this Sunday. I have so looked forward to this race (maybe because I get to wear my kilt, or maybe to start the race to bagpipes?).
Here I am running in my kilt in the Caledonia Race in the Fall which was a warm, muggy day. We were encouraged to dress with a Scottish theme, but I think there weren't more than ten of us that did!
....and such a special feeling crossing the finish line with a good friend, which doesn't happen often...
Today I am linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict for Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? and with Busy Hands Quilts for Finished or Not Fridays.
I am also linking with Sandra at Musings of a Menopausal Melon for TGIFF - Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday, and with Angela at So Scrappy to see what others have been working on for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
