Quilting, Quilting, Quilting



Yesterday's first priority was to finish the latest chemo hat/scarf. DONE! These are reversible - love the two prints on this one! It's for an attorney - I figure she wears black pants often.


And since it was a day to work on Lollypop Trees, I chose to continue with the hand quilting. What was I thinking?! Yes, this will take a bit of time. But it will be worth it in the end!

As you can see above, I quilted a spiral in it yesterday. That got me thinking...maybe I'll quilt my initials in it?

I've been watching a lot of Netflix this week while I sew. I've watched the movie, Mean Creek, the documentary, Twinsters, and a couple of episodes of Longmire.

Today the hourglass block are up to bat. I know...these are supposed to be a Leader/Ender project, but I don't piece a lot of quilts. So a Leader/Ender project would never get done around here! I plan for this to be a small project - maybe a wall hanging, or a few pillows...we'll just see how big it gets.

I'm headed to my daughter's home later this morning - she's on vacation for a couple of days so today I'm helping her upholster a window seat cushion. Should be fun!

Have a wonderful day!

  1. Lollipop is coming along SO nicely! Love the spirals...and handstitching is the best!!! If you like documentaries, check out Antarctica: A year on Ice...WOW! How interesting...I learned so much!!! Love Longmire. I've read the books and they are good as well!
