|My Wooly Block Adventure block has been made into a little hanging quilt. |
This was my UFO finish for January and is also on my 2017 Finish-A-Long list list.
|A little crazy quilting for the block frame. I considered using a red homespun for the binding, but ended up using a blue French General fabric that was a perfect match.|
|My friend Rebecca gave me the idea to do the crazy patch quilting for the border. I really love how it turned out. A lot of the blue wool pieces were left over from cutting hexagons--a good way to use up those scraps.|
|I think Pam Curo's depiction of these deer is so sweet, even though I detest the deer around my house. Yesterday we had a herd of twelve deer in the backyard. I can't even begin to describe how badly my gardens have been destroyed by these critters!|
|I'm more than half way through the stitching on my wool hexagon project. I've been using up every blue and gray wool thread in my stash (you can probably see the variation in color in the fly stitching). Eventually, I ran out of stash threads and had to order some new ones. The spool above is Rustic Wool Moire. It's much stiffer and stronger than the DMC wool I've been using. It also seems a bit heavier, but that may be because it kind of sits on top of the surface instead of sinking in a bit like the DMC. |
I'm going to be fly stitching tonight while enjoying Victoria and Homeland--it's going to be a nice evening!
