Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had an enjoyable day. We’ve had snow, snow and more snow today. And there’s more to come. I just hid in my sewing room longarm quilting to my little heart’s content.
I finally finished quilting my Dresden quilt today. I clicked the on switch at 9am and carried on until the job was finished. The quilt still needs to be bond and labelled but I just needed to show you a little progress of all the effort I put into this simple quilt. Here’s a sneaky peek …..
I’m going to sew in all the thread ends this evening and I hope to bind and label it tomorrow. I am so please with this quilt. I think this one is going to be hung in my living room where I can see it every day. I will be sure to show it off before it goes up on the wall. It feels so good to have almost completed this quilt. This is one project that started on paper as a drawing and I was able to bring it to fruition. I will post more photos when the binding has been added.
I did a little bit of fine hand appliqué work last evening. I’m really enjoying this hand appliqué work. Here’s a little peek …..
Does anyone else do fine appliqué work out there? Do you love it as much as I do? My favourite appliqué method is using freezer paper. However, I recently finished a raw edge machine appliqué project and it looks great but I didn’t find it as satisfying as hand appliqué.
I mentioned yesterday that the weather forecast for this week was going to be a bit full of snow and cold. Well the wind has set in and is definitely driving the snow. We’re experiencing plenty of falling snow and the wind is very cold indeed. You would think that I would be used to kind of weather because I was born and bred in Montreal where the winters are really hard. I have definitely softened up over the two+ decades I have spent in the UK. The weather, although very damp, is much milder here in the UK winters than ever they were in Montreal. I was quite pleased to hide in my sewing room today. Sarah had no such lucky as she had to travel to uni for a studio session.
I guess that’s my report for today. I hope you all have a super cosy evening. Snuggle down and enjoy a relaxing evening. Until next time,
Let’s all keep on stitching
