Well I might not be able to sew for long periods of time but that doesn't mean I am not sewing . I really wanted to get a couple of things down off my design wall so over several days I was able to finish these two projects. First off is this pillow , I am either really late or really early for Christmas , I will go with the later .
Next is my Temecula Mini project , which was a weekly block and are super tiny measuring in at just 2.75" .I decided to make it into a runner on point which was one of the options . Hmm maybe I should have gone with something a little less challenging , my mind didn't want to wrap around getting this together properly .I had to keep it on the design wall and just take a row at a time so as not to mix things up but the good news is I did it !! Yeah for me , there are sure a lot of seams in this tiny thing so quilting it I went with just quilting in the alternate blocks and triangles but being so tiny that is plenty .
I think it is so darn cute , the colours are a bit off here , that lighter fabric looks white but it is not a pure white for sure . Very fun little mini , love it :-)
Now ,what am I working on now , well I am so behind on everything these days but I just had to start on this quilt for my granddaughter .I had my friend Diane purchase the panel for me last winter when she was in Florida and had plans on getting two of these made for Christmas , well that didn't happen either so the time has come to make a start . My initial plan was to do blocks with appliqued snowflakes but with my back situation and the time it takes me to do that type of sewing I decided on a different approach . Pinwheels , yep , making quite a few of them but only have 8 made so far and 10 more in hsts waiting to be sewn together . If I do a little at a time and then rest my back I can manage this I think . Here is how it looks so far , the pinwheels are not sewn on just beside the panel which I have sewn a border around . There are other colours that will be introduced here so this will get mixed up some but I do like it .
I sure miss my sewing time , I know what am I saying , I am sewing but not like I normally do and it is so frustrating because my brain wants to do it but my body says wait a minute you can't sit here any longer , take a break and those are very frequent :-( I have to be grateful for what I can accomplish and stop complaining right !!
Thanks for stopping by today , it is always nice to see you .
