SEWING SEWING SEWING--
I think that about says it for today--
No now wait a minute--
Miss Gracie has a new clean litter box--so that means someone did do some house work in amongst all this sewing!!!!
Got another block all hand quilted this morning--
Then I headed to the sewing room cause I have decided that I want to join the Dresden plate stitch along that Anne of Bunny Hill is doing--
I do not have the actual dresden plate ruler--
can you believe that????
but I found a template of one I had made about 8 years ago--
so I used that--
and the Cape Ann layer cake for it--
and this is what I got--
I love it--only it is 23" round--wow!!!
but then I am not sure how round they come out with the correct plastic Dresden ruler?????
I can get 2-3 blades out of each 10" square--and most of the regular prints there is two of each design--
it is just the actual clothes pieces that there is only one sheet of--so I will probably need another layer cake to make it--
but then again--I did discover that the colors in these prints match 30's colors and I have alot of them--
I have tried out two centers--
and then there is background to applique this to--
did find this one--
This one has small pink roses on it--and I have some with small blue roses on it???
What do you think?????
Am going to the city on Friday--and could get a solid--probably white or a real pale blue??????
These are so easy to make--or at least the part was?????
Then this afternoon I continued to start another counted cross stitch project--
I know--yesterday was the last day--number 15--but remember I finished one in the one day--
so I felt I needed to have a total of 15 ufo's!!!
so started this one--
Oh my what a job--it is done on 36 ct cloth
and me and the cloth and the threads and counting
are not getting very far--
and really there are 3 letters on here that really should be done over again--
I mean again--have already done a couple of them several times--ouch!!!!!!
and this is just January--there is 11 more I want to do in this series??????
and keep stitching!!!!
Hugs, Di and that fur ball--!!!
