Some days you should never
sit down at the sewing machine.
Look at this mess . . .
I'll be ripping stitches all night.
This is my latest toy . . . it magnifies,
has a light and swivels and is wonderful,
because I am in the early stages of cataracts.
I have not had to rip stitches
for a very long time, until I purchased this.
So is it a fluke, a coincidence or just bad luck
that in the last two days I have had to rip out stitches
in a quilt that I'm working on.
Before I show you what I've been working on . . .
I want to thank Nancy at
Cozy Thyme Cottage
When I opened the Christmas card that she sent
these lovely gift tags fell out.
Aren't they pretty :)
If you haven't visited Nancy's blog
you can find it here:
I have been having more fun with
my fabric paints and made this chart
for color reference.
And I've finished three more blocks
to be used in a future quilt.
In the last post I had drawn and painted
a Ball jar with flowers . . . so I drew another
and made it a Mason jar :)
I also just finished painting this block.
I think that I will use it to make a pillow cover.
Here I just quilted some crossing stitches
and used them to play around with.
I could make coasters out of them, I guess?
Girls just want to have fun
and that's what I did today.
Not counting the ripping out of stitches
that will occupy my TV watching time, tonight :)
Oh, here's my helper.
He gets a treat when he comes over to the
Art Barn, so he's Johnny on the spot when
I head out to sew.
It's All Good!
