First I did get a lot done on the Tisket a Tasket quilt , just a little more to go and that will be a finish ,yeah. No work on the Row by Row , can only hand quilt one at a time ;-()
Our quilt guild is going to be swapping postcards with a guild in Saskatchewan soon so I made up a few postcards to show them tonight at our meeting . For some this will be there first time making a postcard .
I wanted a little break from the quilting so made this wool needlecase ,all hand done and so nice to work with , the wool for the main body of this needlecase was a scarf that I bought at a thrift store and shrunk and oh how lovely it is , so soft and easy to work with and I love this little needlecase .
and the inside ,pretty simple design , this was in a Fons and Porter magazine a few years back .
I still need to get cracking on my Stay at home Round Robin, have a plan just need to put it to action ;-) Oh I sewed the binding on the little Halloween cat so that is a finish . Also since I was playing around with crazy patch quilting I made a Christmas ornament in the shape of a heart and had fun with some stitches on my machine to embellish it . The shape could have been a bit better but it is what it is ;-0
That is about all my progress for this week , I hope next week to tell you the Tisket a Tasket is finished and the Row by Row is also in progress , wish me luck.
I will share two more pictures of works in progress , one is mine the other is a friends quilt . Ready?
Here is my Louisa quilt in progress , the way it looked yesterday when we were putting it away for the week. It has shrunk and is looking just wonderful .Then yesterday afternoon the gals put my friend Diane R. quilt on the frame , wow that is one large quilt and took a while to figure out how they would manage to get it on but they are really good at that so I left them to it and continued to work on Louisa . Diane's quilt is gorgeous , just gorgeous , love the blues and the fabrics and batting feel just beautiful so I know this will be a pleasure to work on. Ok I know you want to see it and I know you will be impressed . It isn't quite finished and will need some strips to hold it in place and keep it taunt.There is a fair amount rolled under here to make the boards fit.
To finish off I want to share another photo of fall in my neck of the woods just because I love it so much .
Don't you just wonder what is around the bend ? I am linking up today with the Needle and Thread Network so be sure to check out who else has linked up and see some wonderful creative work . Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by . hugs Sheila
