I really don't mind being home because of ice on the roads, but I do mind missing bee! Knox schools are closed, so we don't have bee. So I'm starting another block to give to a friend. Can you guess what it says? I'll tell you at the end of the blog.
Here's the back and the front of the fleece coat. Got the other pieces almost done. Doing a lot of machine stitches on the parts of it! Just having fun!
I finished appliqueing the top of this last week at bee! Some things just take time. I love the needle turn technique! Got plenty of these to quilt up!
Two sleeve! Need to do the collar and the scarf. The hat is done! And it's bigger so it goes down over all my ear! Looks huge, but it's what I wanted! Warmth.
This is the sample piece I was using to see what the stitches really look like in the machine. And then I changed the length of the stitch and the width on some of them. You need a reference! So I will make a cover for the machine with every stitch on it and write the number next to it and any changes I made to width and length. Then I don't have to go through this again and again....again....
I also made a list of challenges that I want to do and specific quilts that I want to finish for shows. Not long, but I'm wondering if I'll get them all done by deadlines. Maybe? So I have to prioritize my list again. I usually take the small pieces to bee to work on. No Bee? Mmmm? Choices are hard to make some days.
It's icy on the roads. Why chance it? !!!! No!!! Seen too many accidents every single year. So we are in the house with a dog that has too much energy. Terry does training then and hides treats for finding things. Cute. Now I find a few treats...
So what are you working on this winter while we are happily stuck inside?
The block at the beginning? Figure it out?
So go have some fun!
Work on something that you want to do and haven't had the time.
Life is too short to put things off.
I also figure, if I have it started, I won't forget that I wanted to do that!
