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!
