he is just too cute.
I made this owl awhile back and kept forgetting to take a picture, well here it is. He is supposed to be a pin cushion but he is too cute so I keep him in my windowsill, well until the cat wants that spot anyway.
I also finished the 3 charity quilt tops that I was tasked with and along with the 35 kits I made I am now thinking I am done. I will still help out on Monday's of course but I am taking a break from stuff at home. I haven't been able to get much of my stuff done, the sad thing is I feel guilty if I don't do everything they ask, but you know there is only one of me.
I finished a pot holder, candle mat yesterday my first one ever. It turned out pretty good until the binding. I tried to machine sew it on and it didn't work to well. Guess I will have to keep experimenting with that aspect. I think the next time I will sew it from the back to the front and then put a decorative stitch on it. I know how to do it from front to back using some steam a seam but since these are so quick to make I was looking for a quickie way to finish. I guess that is what I get for being in a hurry.
I am getting ready to start a small wall hanging "Quaint Little Quilts #4" I had all of the fabric ironed and then remembered it is applique. So will get that ready and then put the other fabric aside until I get the applique done. This is needle turn applique and the first time I have done it. So we shall see how that goes.
Well off to find something quick, fun, and easy to do. I need a break from new things that is for sure. Maybe I will pull out one of my strip kits and work on that. I still am doing my leaders and enders in reds I only need 369 of them and I have 120 row 1's done.
Football, pizza and sewing....life is good...now if I could just get used to the cooler weather here in CO.
