What's up 07.05.16

What's up is all good. 




I did complete the hearts and cross stitched snowflakes, made the border and attached it to the top. 



Can now say that I am one step closer to having this up on the wall for Christmas this year.











Need to locate a backing so I can start quilting on this, was done in a big stitch using the embroidery floss, using whats on the snowflakes



Now it's onto "Words to Live By". 



I've been writing the words on the blocks. It took me a while to decide whether or not I wanted the words but they are so nicely written and when I did a practice word I decided that it wasn't to obstructive.



And while doing the words on the blocks I realize that some of the blocks had not been completed with any embroidery accents



Put them aside in a pile so I could be working on those while watching TV.
I decided also on which method I'm going to use on the HST. Seeing how it's the border that mainly has all these half square triangles, which needs to be I feel on the straight of grain, less stretch from the weight of this quilt. So I'm going to go with the eight at one time method
It should be at a good diverse collection doing it that way also.

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.
