I have a plan too.... but more on that later.
Without further ado..... my first completed block of Macs Christmas Quilt.... aka A Boys Story
Drat!! I just realised I haven't stitched the 'flight lines' behind the plane. Double drat!! Haven't stitched the detail on the plane either. Just pretend you haven't noticed and I promise I'll fix it later.
This is a brilliant project for the
It gave me the giggles the whole time I was stitching on it. Lots more comic strips to come too.... they are so much fun to do. I get to stitch a boat next.... and I'm already itching to get started. After I finish the plane that is.... drat!
Now.... something for the weekend.
I have this in the hoop.....
and these in the queue for the hoop......
Yes it's no less than 4 mini blocks from Block 8 of Butterfly Garden. If you have BG stashed... neglected and gathering dust why not join Nicky..... me and a growing gang of quilting Desperadoes...... desperate to finish this project that is..... and start stitching butterflies again. You know you'll love it!
I've a confession to make too..... about this......
It's the first block of My Town BOM. I've decided to start it again!
Because it's gone all stiff!
I haven't done much fusing before ... just little bits and pieces... and there's a whole lot of it in this block. In fact everything is fused.... even my iron! I used Steam-a-Seam 2 Lite but it feels way too rigid for my liking. I've blanket stitched most of it and really enjoyed doing it too.....but there's no getting away from it.... I just prefer a more 'floppy' feel to a quilt. So..... I'm going to do the block again with needle turn applique.
Call me crazy if you like..... the truth can't hurt!
You know when I started writing this I had a plan for the weekend...... now I can't remember what it was! DRAT!!
Perhaps I'll re-start My Town or I might just float my boat. Hexies... now there's an idea. Vignette has been neglected this week. Too many choices for a procrastinator!
Reckon I'll start by doing my ironing before the heap totally blocks the light from the window. I can stitch tomorrow. There's Formula 1 on TV..... the Canadian Grand Prix.... love it! Makes me stitch faster too... all those revving engines.
Or maybe I'll make a cup of tea and enjoy this......
No contest eh!
Till next time
