What's Up 3.14.16

Made it back from Dallas around midnight and slept in this morning. Felt good. 
The Dallas show was excellent, the quilts gorgeous, and we did pretty well at our booth also.
I have been working the Dallas show for six years now and I have enjoyed it every time I go.
It's just a wonderful show. And if you ever get a chance you ought to try. Mark it on your calendar and. it's usually the second weekend in March

So what I have up on my wall is the start of the last block to be appliquéd to my Words to Live By quilt.

I'm working on tracing my appliqué pieces to some Soft Fuse.

I like using Soft Fuse with wool, because it's so flexible and works with the wool very well, sticks to it excellently.

The other half of the wall is devoted to the Scandinavian Christmas wall hanging. I'm working on the churn dashes for blocks 4. 

Already have the crossed stitch snowflake block finish for that section. 

And I took with me to Dallas the snowflakes that need to be cross stitch for the outer border. 

I was able to get a few of those completed.Would be pretty tired in the evening so didn't get much done while there.

  8. Lots of beautiful stuff up on your design walls. Hope you've had a chance to recover from Dallas.

  9. I love your Christmas quilt - how lovely that you could get something useful done while at the show. It's one I've wanted to do, but the chance hasn't come yet. I'm glad you weren't flooded! Thanks for the information on Soft Fuse. I've been looking for something like that as I'm planning a big project for next year!


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
