I have been making some blocks for a swap. These present blocks are from EQ6, 10 1/2 inches. They are fun to do up, easy machine applique. I have used a lot of decorative stitches. I have 9 of 12 made.
I messed up so bad on this cross stitch, I had to start over. So here is Christmas Sampler #2. I have done so much better this time. The colors are really nice. It will probably take me a long time to finish!
I have been sewing but not doing much finishing. I am making a quilt for my dh, and the top is done, but the back is not. I don't have any pieces of fabric big enough for it, so I decided to piece a back. But since I had to do it, I decided to make the quilt reversible. The quilt is all browns, like a cup of coffee, all different amounts of cream. The quilt will be about queen size with a fat poly batt, tied, to make it more of a comforter.
I have also set up a sewing morning with a friend. So for the last month, we have met on Tuesday morning at her house, and sewed from 9 until 12+. She is making a nine patch with sashing and corner squares. I have been working on all kinds of projects. We have been having a great time.
