It sure does feel like the perfect day for some slow stitching!
I haven't slept well this week....today I've been up since 3:00. I'm not sure what's going on, but I do know that it makes for extra stitching time!
The last couple of days I've been working on the next block of my wool applique...
The instructions for this pattern ask that you secure the pieces with a whip stitch using a single strand of matching floss, which is what I've done here. It's an extra step, but for some strange reason I'm liking it.
I think I'll hold off on the contrasting blanket stitch until after the next week.
I've signed up for a class at Quilt Junction that will teach different kinds of stitches for wool applique to get the Sue Spargo look. The first class is next Friday and I hope to learn a couple of fancy stitches that I can incorporate into this current project.
I'll also have to remember to go shopping for some tiny beads for the birds' eyeballs!
Hopefully in my next post I'll show my progress on my temperature quilt. All I've done so far is take note of the daily high/low temps since January 1st since I've totally changed my mind on fabrics and am waiting now for something in the mail.
Is anyone else making a temperature quilt this year? If you are on Instagram you can do some various searches and see all the ideas that are out there.
Have a nice day doing some stitching. I think I'll do a little prep-work for some applique before I go this afternoon to see Mary Poppins!!
I am linking up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching.
