Early morning still...but I've been up for a long while now. That just means I've been able to get a bit of extra slow-stitching done, right?
This week I hung my Queen's Garden up on the design wall. I am overwhelmed lately at the number of UFO's that I have, so I'm determined to have a "finish" by the end of the year. Then plan is to get this one sewn together and quilt it over my Christmas break.
I hadn't realised that I still had some embroidery to complete on this quilt :(
I may have left it, but there was just too much still to do so I will finish that up this week....starting this morning...
These Japanese taupe fabrics are sometimes difficult to draw a line on with my regular marking tools....but the Hera marker does a brilliant job!....
I really like working with the Perle cotton.
Earlier this week I hung my Temperature Quilt on the wall to get a look at how it's coming along.
That is it complete from January 1 to the end of October. I wish I'd had more contrast in my "hot" colours...lesson learned for next time! I won't do one next year, but I most likely will in 2021 since I'm enjoying this so much.
I'm almost finished my Haphazard quilt.
I love the texture of the quilting...
....and I love that I'm using a fabric from my stash for the backing...
This is just a small quilt...36" square, but it will be the perfect size for my lap when I'm sitting in the morning with my coffee and hand-stitching!
I've decided to apply a facing on the quilt instead of a binding. I actually thought I'd be doing the hand-stitching on the facing today but it's not quite ready.
A great tutorial on facing a quilt can be found HERE at the blog of The Silly BooDilly. I reference her tutorial any time that I do a facing.
I guess I'd better get on with my day....we are going on a day-trip since it looks like such a beautiful day for it.
I am linking up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching. Hopefully you have time to visit with her and check out what other slow-stitchers are working on today!
