Yesterday after I finished the string quilt, I took a break from the sewing machine and did some quilting and some embroidering.
I put Doc Martin on Netflix and did some hand quilting.
Finally I can start seeing the end. That's only because I'm being pretty persistent about getting in some quilting at least every other day
I have only these two big blocks to do.
I normally quilt during the day because in the evening after "The Man of the Place" gets home I try to spend time visiting and catching up on our day.
So if I do hand work it's usually something that I don't really have to pay to close attention to or if not too cumbersome.
Did worked some on the Scandinavian Christmas
I'm doing a Crosstitch around the outside of the appliquéd block as you can tell I'm almost done.
I printed the crosstitch on transfer-eze, makes it very easy getting the pattern on the fabric and stiff enough I don't need to use a hoop
Then there the few blocks to piece together and sew them around the outside of this block. Will attach it to the other two completed sections I have of the Scandinavian Christmas.
Tomorrow our stitch group is meeting and I really want to get as many as the Farmer's wife blocks that I have completed and drop them off at the quilt shop on the way to stitch tomorrow.
So that's what I'm going to do the rest of today.
I have six blocks to do and which 4 of them are paper pieced, which take me forever for some reason.
Paper piecing is not really my favorite technique but like many out there, I like how are nice and sharp everything looks when you're done.
Well I better get busy,
till next time.
