If it's football season....then I'm hand quilting!
I've pulled out my Marshal quilt. I started the hand quilting on this last year during football season and didn't finish it. And so it sat since then. I'm determined to finish it this season!!!
I adore the texture of hand quilting!! It's so good to have this in my lap again. And I'm making great progress so far.
And now for an update on the baby quilts. I finished the tops! My friend quilted them! I have made all the binding and machine stitched it on. The hand stitching is in progress. I won't share them again until they have been gifted.
So my friend, Beth...(she is also my quilter)...sent me down a rabbit hole. She is a very talented quilter. But she has also recently rediscovered needlepoint. Yup. And for some reason, I always want to do what she is doing. Do you have friends like that?
Beth suggested I order a Stitch and Zip kit. It's a zippered pouch and it's all put together. So no finishing is required. I found this little ditty on ebay and grabbed it. It's not big and should be a good way to get back into needlepoint after years away. And I can always use another zippered pouch.
If you look closely, you'll see that I have just started the white background in the corner.
So yes, I've been very busy this week!
We close on our new home Friday - EEK! YAY! But we won't move in for another couple of weeks. We'll probably start packing later this week. And I'm not even dreading packing - I really don't think it will be so bad. Let's hope not anyway.
