Slow Sunday

My Sunday was far from slow, seems like lately my weekends are all about catching up on things around the house seeing how I am gone a lot during the week.

I have been working hard trying to finishing quilting on Blue Rocky Road




but need to put that aside again because I want to get the Scandinavian  Christmas wallhanging completed so I can display it this Christmas.



Pinned basted the sandwich.


Figure since I won't be handle this for too long that pinned basting will be good enough.


Haven't used this PVC hoop before and it's really not bad.
Working out so far



I'm doing a general outline of the large appliqued right now but will do snowflakes in the open spaces and then something around the cross stitch frame.



I will quilt on this like I had been, in the morning but also put in some time in the evening too.

  1. It can be a challenge playing catch up on weekends. We do the best we can. I have used a PVC frame with excellent results. Hope you can finish the wallhanging.

    1. Karen, the name is Scandinavian Christmas by Lynnette Anderson. This was a BOM at The Rabbit Lair many years ago and now that shop is closed. I know you can still get the pattern.

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.
