Another awesome sewing day. I just love these sewing days. And things have taken a complete turn of events. I used to spend my Mondays cutting out projects. Then I would sew them at home. Now I seem to be prepping the projects at home and sewing them while away!!!! Not sure how that happened, but I don't mind. I have a lot of stuff in my laundry basket and could just whisk away at any moment (sewing machine is in the upstairs hall) and I would be fine for at least a week!!! Yes - I am just going to whisk that laundry basket away when I go on retreat. But a bit more cutting first!
Anyway - here are a couple of projects that the ladies were working on yesterday.
|Linda was putting the borders on her quilt which is stunning|
|The rest of that border - she still has MORE borders to put on.|
|Mary got this border put on her quilt which is also stunning|
|Close-up of the alternative blocks which is embroidery. Gorgeous!!!!|
|I decided it was time that I did one of those jelly roll race quilts. I know - I have resisted all this time, but had some Christmas strips that would be perfect for playing around. I got all the strips joined .....................|
|And that first big long seam done. I know people don't press that seam until the entire quilt is done, but I am pressing that seam. It would drive me crazy if I did not!!!!!|
Also got a lot of curved piecing done in the morning which is prep for a class coming up on Tuesday. I'll share when it is a little more complete.
|Look at this scrap of orange fabric with names of tea on it!!!! Thanks Mary!!!!|
It was like Christmas yesterday. Not only did I get the tea fabric, but I also got the pattern for this Row by Row.
|An awesome row by row pattern!!!!|
|And let's not forget - THREE more license plates. Thanks to Maria!!!!|
|And I got one more at the guild last night - thanks Bernice!!!|
There are still more to come - one or two I believe. It is crazy - once I get them all - I will take a picture of them. It was a fun summer to say the least and I thank everyone for helping me collect them!!!!
The Brampton Guild had their first meeting last night. As I looked around the room - there were a LOT of people KNITTING. There were THREE people at my table including myself. Block number TWENTY is DONE. Yes - I am now on the last skein of wool and then I get to use up the leftovers. Oh yes - can't let anything go to waste. I'll take pictures later to show you.
I am off on another road trip today so no time to run around and take pictures this morning.
On that note - have an awesome day!!!!!!!!!!!!!
