I just realized that it’s the end of the month, so I need to do a quick post for OPAM. I actually have 3 finishes this month, although they aren’t large. I feel good about the progress that I’m making on my list though.
I finished this topper earlier in the month when I got my quilting machine back. It’s all straight-line quilted using rulers. I need a LOT of practice with rulers!!
This next piece was just finished over the weekend, and it was quilted from a stencil. I need a LOT of practice using stencils and following lines! But this was a disaster from the beginning, so I figured it would just be a practice piece. This should only be viewed from a galloping horse, preferably at night.
And then the little wall hanging that I did at my retreat. The spools on the left are pieced, and the crow, spool and pincushion on the right are wool applique. I love working with wool.
I have many other projects in the works, and I’m constantly stitching. I’ve also been prepping some handwork for the car next week, because we’re going on an adventure! My oldest nephew is getting married in Florida, so we’re heading south, hopefully getting away from this:
Yes, that is snow, not cherry blossoms. It was taken yesterday. That’s it. I’m done. No More Snow!!! So anyway, we’re heading to Florida, by way of Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana. Not the most direct route, but I need to visit the four other states to bring my total of states visited to 47! We’ll also be stopping to visit family members in Tennessee and North Carolina, so it will be a very busy trip.
Happy Stitching! Sunny
