Quiet Machine and Still Hands
Things have been a bit quiet for the past fews days in my sewing room. I haven't had much desire to do much piecing so my my sewing machine has been very quiet. And, I don't have anything prepped for hand sewing i.e. hand applique or stitchery so my hands have been very still. This is very unusual for me however I'm not concerned because I'll get back in the swing of things soon. Just need to figure out what's next.
Today, I'm going to quilt the cute doll quilt I made recently for my blogging friend who's smitten with doll quilts and wants to start a collection. I can sit tonight and sew down the binding and pop it in the mail this week.
I have a list of promised giftees that I need to make and get out the door. Since I plan to mail the doll quilt this week maybe I should finish those giftees and make one trip to the post office.
I need to spend some time with my recent applique and stitchery projects and do some much needed prep work . BTW, I don't like prep work :-)
The picture is a sampling of 3" finished 9 patches that Wendy and I have been swapping since August. We swapped 15 in Aug and Sept and because we're super excited about this project we raised the number to 20 each month for Oct, Nov and Dec. The 180 blocks that we'll have by the end of December should be plenty to make a nice sized quilt. I did make the 20 blocks for November already so those need to go the post office this week, too.
I think I have a good "to do" list to keep me busy the rest of the week. :-)
And, I need to wish my Sweetie a very happy birthday today!
Thanks for popping by to see what's happening in my corner of the world!
