Kinda Quiet Lately
This year, I thought I would try crochet snowflakes and found this pattern here. I can't seem to execute it perfectly, though, as small as it is. I have ripped out and re-done more times than I can count. The one above was my first attempt, and will be staying home with me. I need to stiffen and block it, but it will give you the idea of what I've been working on.
And last weekend, I was searching for something in the sewing room and ran across 4 quilts that have just been sitting there, waiting to be quilted, and one that BD#1 made the top and was going to give to Goodwill that I salvaged that I plan to give to 100 quilts for kids. So, I just quilted this weekend. Very time consuming. I keep trying that FMQ meandering/stippling thing, and I just am not satisfied, but they are quilted and done and pictures will follow this weekend, probably, when it is light.
I am really hating driving home in the dark. I really hate the time change, whichever way it goes. But regardless, tomorrow is Veteran's Day and so a day to remember those who have fought for our freedoms. I am grateful. And a day off from work, for which I am also grateful. I want it to be a very productive sewing weekend. I have a LONG list of things to accomplish. Do you realize that Christmas is only 6 weeks away?
Whew! Gotta run!
