Progress! The bottom half of the char is stitched and the top is basically outlined and some motifs are finished. It moved fast this week...
More fabric used for the quilt guild "row of the month" challenge ( I decided to make two quilts from this pattern so if I do finish, I will be able to fulfill "donate two" requirement of belonging to the guild!). Still haven't found the courage to fire up the sewing machine and start stitching, though... Maybe today (she says, hopefully)!
Oh, and I purchased four different solids in hopes that ONE of them would go with my hoped-for Chinese Coin quilt, for the guild's Unstarted Quilt Project... All four will work so I now have material for sashing, borders *and* backing! Woo Hoo! Now, to cut... and to piece.
Used this Week: 0.9yards
Used year to Date: 1.3 yards
Added this Week: 12 yards
Added Year to Date: 12 yards
Net Used for 2010: -10.7 yards
Started a new piece, a kit that was in my project bag. Decided I needed to do something simple for a while to get my mind off quaker motifs before I dive right back in!
It's called "Garden Sampler", is a design by Nancy Rossi of the Kooler Design Studio and published by JanLynn. 14 ct Aida and DMC floss...
I aso have pieced together two pieces of cotton that I think will be my February bead Journal project background. You can make out the basting for the felt I have put on the back --- it will be 5" x 5" finished and I THINK I will be offsetting it so that the pink will be no more than 1.5" of that. Beads are picked out --- WAY more than I need --- and I THINK I know what I want to stitch but as to what it ends up like, well, that no-one but the bead goddess knows!
