Thank goodness that I edited my pictures first thing when I got up. Went to the gym - had a super spin class with Joseph. He is a very popular instructor - there were 39 in the class this morning! I know - I counted them! But I find those classes not only good for the body, but AWESOME for the mind. I have solved many problems during his classes including another one this morning. I will be able to action out that problem tomorrow now that I know what I am going to do. I will be sharing that with you later this week.
Then I had breakfast with the gym friends and I stayed way too late which is why I now have 15 minutes - well less to get this post out!!!!!
One day - I should just post pictures and see if you can make up a story to go with the pictures!!!
Anyway - Sunday was applique club and there were 15 of us all busy like bees. I was going to start something new and then I gave my head a big shake and said NO. This would be a great opportunity to finish up some stuff.
So I pulled out this project box.................
|Project box - yes - there is a lot of fabric in there, the pattern was there and so was the quilt top.|
|Simple Country Sampler by The Rabbit Factory|
This was the $10 quilt at The Hobby Horse in 2007. Somewhere along the line, I had most of it complete, but the applique in two corners was NOT done.
So this is what I did during applique club.
|Top right corner|
|Bottom left corner|
I managed to get the applique pieces prepped and glued on - just need to be stitched down by machine. I have the threads out, needle changed to a smaller size - the machine is threaded - I just need an hour or so and it will be done!!!!!!!!!!
I even made the back the other day and the binding - well that is a story I will share with you another day!!!! And while I was working and finishing this up - I remembered another project that used similar colouring of fabric so I dug that out - that is the box on the right below.
|Two projects - more on what happened to both tomorrow when hopefully the story will be complete!!!|
The others were all busy working on their respective projects. Many brought something that was in the works - no new stuff. Well maybe one or two new projects. I didn't get pictures of most.
|Dede got one Dear Jane block appliqued|
|Wait - she managed to get TWO Dear Jane blocks appliqued and I think she did some prep work on another project!!!|
|See those two smiling faces? Yes Annadel and Nancy - I think they look guilty if you ask me!!!! It was all about having fun on Sunday and we had loads of fun!!!!!|
|Someone (I can't remember who) had these wonderful boxes of WonderFil thread. I want them!!!!! This is 100 weight thread and PERFECT for hand applique!!!!!|
|Helen Anne had been experimenting (I love people who experiment) and she had tried her new applique tools - the APPLIQUICK tools. She tried different weights of stabilizer - I think she did an awesome job.|
|This is one of the stabilizers that she tried and we thought it worked very nicely.|
Wow - and there you have it - a fabulous day with friends - we all got tons of work done. I made huge progress on an old old project. I think everyone went home happy and that is what it is all about!!!!
On that note - I am getting ready for embroidery club this morning. I know - the only way I get things done is to share my time with others!!!! Otherwise - I would fritter the time away - well I wouldn't, but I would get other things done. This is for fun!!!!!
Have a great day!!!!!!!!
