Yes, I Basted!

Okay, so yesterday I stuck to the schedule. I basted hexies!!! Still more to go, but I'm getting there.

I have now sponge painted 3 out of the 4 top pieces! (I'll paint the last one today.) But I just couldn't wait any longer...

Last night I started the hand stitching. Yes, I'm leaving the tails and knots on the outside. And after stitching each shape I trim out the center so the white fabric underneath shows. 

I do hope this top fits me when all this is complete - it looks so small! If I can't wear it, then maybe one of my daughters can. 

Look what came in my e-mail yesterday!!! Lorraine has finished her Bliss - isn't it fabulous?!!! Lorraine, thanks so much for sharing this with all of us!

There is a haze of smoke hanging over our neighborhood this morning - someone is burning something off somewhere outside the area and it is bothersome. We watched the 'fog' episode of The Crown last night and it is eerily similar. Hope it dissipates soon...

I swam again yesterday afternoon - that's 3 days in row. I'm getting back in the swing of swimming regularly after the holidays. 68 laps yesterday! And I met two nice women to boot!

I'm not sure what I'll do today. I wouldn't mind going to a local antique mall if I can get Hubby to join me. And I may work on those nine patches for my UFO project that I DIDN'T get done Thursday.

I hope you have a wonderful Saturday!

  1. OK, I have keep looking and looking at this applique piece....I can't for the life of me figure out what or how are you are doing this reverse applique. I've done two different methods (one my friend developed) but can't see what you are doing with the stitching?? You can't needle turn because of the stitching..can you explain or show us what or how you are doing this method!
