I do not like to get outside when it's cold, even when it's like 30 degrees. I spend a lot of time in the house just sitting by the fire. While the temps dropped this week to around 3 degrees I worked on some needle turn applique, knitting and crochet.
This is one of 3 applique blocks that I have been working on. It's from a BOM titled Garden Party. You can find the link to Sheryl's sight on the right side of my blog page. I have not put the eyes on because I am thinking about using small buttons. I am going to wait a while and see how the other blocks turn out.
This is my latest quilt that I am working on. I am just doing a stippling and have made one pass already. Just this week I received a set of Red Snappers and I really like the way they work on my frame. This is the first quilt that I am using Superior Masterpiece thread on the top and Bottom Line on the bottom and I love the way it stitches. I was a little concerned at first, thinking it would be to difficult to use but so far so good. I plan on ordering a cone size if it continues to go as well on the rest of the quilt. Tomorrow Ricky is supposed to put up my design wall. I have 2 memory quilts that I want to work on and I need to lay them out so I can decide where to place the blocks. Those pictures will come later. Well, I gotta go and figure out what I'm having for my dinner so I'll chat later. Stay safe out there!
