I’m back from Road at the same ol’ same ol’… work, home, craft, work…
I got a little more quilting done on Tell It To The Stars, another round knitted on my Rosie Hat and I practiced a bit on my hand quilting. I think my regular hand quilting is fine. I could be better but I really want to learn how to use the Aunt Becky tool. I just can’t get it right. At the hand quilting class I took at Road last week, the instructor said I’ve got the foundations right I just need practice. It sure doesn’t feel right but I guess I’ll keep at it until it clicks. I’m seriously contemplating hand quilting Raining Cats and Dogs so I’m practicing now for when that is done. I’ve got to piece the blocks together, piece the borders on before the top will be done, then the back, then baste — so, I’ve got plenty of time to practice before I get to that point.
For now, I’m loving my new thimble. It sure is wonderful to hand quilt with it. The needle doesn’t slip off the thimble. It slips off in other ways but I sure can’t blame the thimble when it does. 🙂
For those checking in from Freshly Pieced… Thanks for stopping by!
~Here’s to a great week!
That thimble is amazing! 🙂
love that thimble what a joy to use something so beautiful
It surely is a pretty piece of art. I never use a thimble, so I can’t offer any suggestions, but at least you’ll look pretty while quilting.
Thanks Susan… well my finger will look pretty! hehehehe 🙂
