Wow, with a very busy schedule last week, I really needed a Sunday just to sit in my sewing room and relax with my crafts. I got a lot done yesterday.
For Allietare, I got 3 sets of this week’s clue completed.
In between, some of the sets, I got a few of those top two rows pieced together for Celtic Solstice (Bonnie’s mystery quilt-a-long from 2013).
I got the last two leaves on for Raining Cats and Dogs and prepped it for the first cat! 🙂 I’ve been waiting a long time to get that cat on and I’m sew very excited to almost be done with this block.
More stitches on the old Welcome cross stitch project:
As you can see, the pink flower on the top right is complete now. I’m working on getting the letter “M” finished and then I”ll work on the bottom part.
I got all the background quilted for Tell It To The Stars. Now I’ve changed threads and I’m working on quilting the dark blue parts of the quilt. I’m not loving the quilting. I’m actually really mad at the mid arm and the frame. It pulls and is hard to move in certain parts of the frame. It also needs to be seriously cleaned. I did my best before I started quilting Tell It To The Stars but now I see that it really needs to be professionally serviced. I’m going to start saving for a new frame because once the mid arm is cleaned, I think a new frame will help me. But that’s not going to happen anytime soon so I’ll continue using what I’ve got. In the meantime, I need to use easy meandering quilting and not try to do anything more complicated that that. I probably should continue to watch youtube videos and look to see what other Bailey owners feel about their machines.
I’m looking forward to a great week!
Have a great week!
