Every time I think about blogging, I’m in the middle of a stitching project, and I think that if I just finish it, I’ll have one more thing to blog about. Ever have that problem?
I’m late with my Gifted Gorgeousness this month for a variety of reasons. I was too busy working on other things, we took a short vacation, and I broke my eyeglasses! But I persevered, and I’m happy to say that I’m halfway through!
I’ve definitely rediscovered my love of cross stitch!
The Club at our LQS has issued a UFO challenge for the next three months. Since I have many UFO’s, most of which just need to be quilted and bound, that’s what I’m concentrating on right now. This is probably the best quilting that I’ve done to date! I’m practicing on some small quilts, working up to my Christmas quilt.
I also got back to my placemat project this month. They were each made from leftover parts and pieces of previous quilts.
I have seven more tops completed, but I have to wait until I have some appropriately sized batting scraps before I can continue. That means more sandwiching and quilting to come.
I need to learn to do thread painting, because I love what Linda did with this. If you’d like to see more postcards, visit either of their blogs – they’re masters of the craft. I forgot to take a picture of the card that I sent Linda, so perhaps I can get one from her blog later.
Of course, we have managed one kayaking trip between rain and heat waves.
And now, I have stitching to do…….Sunny
