I love holidays
its when I get a chance to play with all my sewing toys & beautiful fabrics in my stash cupboard..
So which project to play with ????
I have so many projects started…
I am so easily side-tracked with starting a new project.
Is anyone else like this?
I am on 2 weeks holidays,
weather here is perfect for spending in my sewing room,
currently foggy and 6 degrees C in the mountains .
So at the weekend I started looking at my projects,
Do I finish quilting "Home of the Heart" quilt ?
Do I finish my daughters wedding quilt, Windflowers ?
(she was married in July this year..oops)
I’m up to finishing the embroidery
Do I finish the backing quilt for "Purple ladies and their cats"…
Its half stitched, all the ladies and cats & flower are finished.
I also have the wall art pictures
Love, Hope Faith,
to finish, they are all appliqued
I have started stitching them down, but not finished.
I found a kit I had bought on-line from Shabby Fabrics about 5 years ago.
I just love their site, I have purchased a few kits from them.
This was the first quilting kit I had bought, and restarted my quilting journey.
I have had several attempts at starting this.
The main problem is that its hand applique
( I’m not a lover of hand stitching,
( “Purple ladies & their cats” was hand stitching that was enough hand stitching for me)
I have always been a machine sewer
but have tried several times to change my mind on hand stitching to no avail.
I had hand sewn a few pieces on …
organised the folder with all the instructions,
organised which fabric was going where….
My love of this project is still strong
I found myself unpicking the hand sewing
decided that to finish this project,
it needs to be
I turned the pattern pieces over,
iron on double sided fusible webbing to each piece
made the first block.
Today I’ll blanket stitch it down!!!!
Stay tuned to see if I get side tracked again .
