What a pain!
So I guess it is high time I have something new on here hey?
Well, I did some bonding with Pfaffy yesterday. Pfaffy was great! My project wasn't! What a pain in the butt machine appliquing around all those bends and curves of the pine trees on my bro's anniversary quilt!!! Who's idea was it to do THOSE trees anyway? ... Oh ya... ME!!! I figure one tree a day is about all I can handle on that one...I imagine the quilt will get done eventually. Not as soon as I had hoped!
I managed to get some more of my binding done on my wedding ring table runner. I only work on hand projects/binding when I go to my quilting groups. I avoid dragging along the machine if I can. I also got some more of my Scrap Hexagon Quilt done. Been working on that one on and off for about 2 years. I am piecing it all by hand. A very relaxing task that I put together for when I go camping, to my groups, etc.
I store/bring my hexagon pieces in a fabric box that I put together. Been making them for years, for my children, their friend's birthday, gifts for my family and friends. They are great as a stationary box, sewing box, collectors box, and for anything else you want. You can use your theme fabrics to indicate it's use. I also make heart shaped ones. Perhaps if anyone is interested, I will post a tutorial for it some day...
I went to the Optometrists on Wednesday. Turns out I need new glasses!!! Yahoo! Hopefully no more waring 2 sets so I can see my fine work....
