I am feeling so much better today! Thank you everyone for all of your warm wishes. 🙂
I pulled out Missing Ivy to work on this week!
Of all my projects currently in rotation, I’m most excited about Missing Ivy. It’s coming together really nice and I’m loving the colors and the coordination. I haven’t yet looked at what the next steps are this week but I have a feeling they are the triangles to fill in the quilt.
I cut more scraps for Scrapitude 2016. I actually finished cutting for all the medium to dark pieces. I pulled out my lights from bin #3 and need to separate between lights and very lights. Then I’ll start cutting. I know Bonnie Hunter’s mystery starts this Friday but I haven’t gotten my fabric together and I’m still not sure what I’m going to do. I have a feeling I’ll be heading to my LQS on Wednesday afternoon to grab something because I want to play with everyone. We’ll see.
I’ll be working on the leaves next for Raining Cats and Dogs and then I’ll be getting the kitties on. In case you’re wondering why it takes me forever on these, I’m actually hand appliqueing everything. (you know, needleturn…) And I have the patience of a fly. I can only do 1-2 strings of thread at a time. But that little bit of progress is enough for me right now.
And if you’re coming back from last Monday, just a quick update on Razzle – Over the weekend, I pieced the blocks and sashes together to make 4 separate rows. Then I went to put together the cornerstones (not part of the pic) with the sashing and discovered that I miscut them. So… sheesh, I feel like every time I get ready to go to the next step in one project I discover something that is messed up or wrong – sometimes it’s something I did like in this case but other times its the kit or the pattern. It’s good that none of these are Christmas presents and I’m just quilting for the joy of quilting.
I’m looking forward to a great week!
Have a great week!
I am “sew” in love with your Missing Ivy blocks, Melanie! Gorgeous colors, and those blocks look fantastic together!
Thanks Rebecca! 🙂
Hello Melanie…thanks for linking up at Bits ‘n Bobs….reading about your challenges with Razzle reminds me of ME! Those sort of issues always pop up when I sit at the sewing machine. The kitties are going to look cute on you applique block.
Thanks Cath! It seems that these keep happening this last month. I used to get stuck when things like this happen to me. I get frustrated and put the project in a bin to tackle another time. And that’s how I got so many UFOs! Now, I still get frustrated but I keep making progress. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
It’s a lovely quilt for this week! If you are working on the fill-in triangles then you are closing in on finishing this one, too. Whatever will you do when you finish all these???
Get going on the next UFO! 🙂
My goodness Melanie, how do you keep it all rolling along so well? I’m so impressed! All your works in progress are very lovely!
Thanks Lara! Some weeks I get a lot done, others not so much. But I feel any bit of progress is better than none! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.
Missing Ivy is very pretty. Looking forward to the next steps with that one. And I love your design FLOOR. Quilters will figure out how to get it done… wall, floor, bed, or wherever there is room! Thanks for sharing.
🙂 Thanks Debora! Yes, we will make do with whatever we’ve got to get what we want done! 🙂
Love your Missing Ivy project. Hope you can get back on track with Razzie. It’s frustrating to be on a roll and have to back up a bit.
Thanks Kate! I’ll work on it another time.
Missing Ivy is so pretty! I also have projects that seem to have a mind of their own and never want to be finished – kind of like your Razzle. 🙂 You are making some great progress! Thanks for sharing on MCM and have a great week!
Thanks Beth! 🙂
Missing Ivy is rightly a favorite of everyone. Yours is so pretty! Gosh! Razzle is just a little imp, isn’t it? lol I’ve had some like that, too. Nothing wrong with letting it marinate for a while if it’s not on a deadline. 🙂
I love the idea of letting it marinate! I will let it sit for another month while it comes across the rotation. 🙂
