I've really hesitated (STRONGLY) about showing what all I did this past week - at least as far as the quilting was concerned!
First of all - I didn't touch my Celtic Solstice quilt until today - and may hold on this until next week! So far it is still at this stage....
What I DID do - was work on the Baby Quilt #1 - and was sooooooooooo pleased with my progress - until I flipped it over! Which is when I saw little pinches of fabric that had scooted in there! Grrrr! Yeah - I know - the Seam ripper is my friend - but honestly I didn't WANT to have to use the seam ripper at this time! And yes - I DID smooth everything out first - and DID work in the center first! Problem was I kept running directly into my safety pins - which I had to move - and, of course, that's when everything scooted! Oh joy!
|Pinch #1 - and honestly, I COULD have taken a more blurry picture!|
|Pinch #2 - and if it had a been me that was pinched like this - It would have HURT!|
|Pinch Number 3 - drat it anyway!|
I would like to say that I finished this - and I may yet - today! I would also like to say that I got all the rest of the little projects all ready. Uh huh! Like.... NOT!
I DID get the little go with bag ready to go with all the various projects for Open Sew. Problem was - I got there - and.... I hadn't packed my seam ripper, scissors, slicer, screwdriver, regular needle shank (I still had the walking foot on!),or any of a dozen other things! I WAS fortunate though, THIS time I did remember to pack my machine cord and pedal! AND I packed the machine! Also packed rulers - which I couldn't use (no slicer, no scissors!) I think it is time I figure out WHERE I put that little kit and just pack it up and KEEP it in my go-with rolling cart!
|Cinnamon Sticks - needed the scissors! |
Needed regular foot and needle! And thread!
|Bow-da-cious! Doing connector blocks (folded corners) - |
sure didn't happen Fri night! no scissors!
|QOV - needs that outside border. Slicer left home! Drat it!|
|"Wheels" to be quartered for Drunkards path! |
Actually am pleased with how these turned out!
|Wagon wheel - can we say off center and LUMPY????|
