PROGRESS REPORT

I have been busy the last  2 days--
but have found some stitching time--
did get these 3 projects basted--
so now, just have to find time to hand quilt them--
first goal is to do the 2 snowpeople ones--

Then today I did get this one prepped--
all the pieces are ready to be stitched onto the background--
except the bunny--
I really wanted a white bunny in wool--
and all I could find in the shops here was felt--
SO--
I did my online search and found a nice place back up in NY that has a great line of wools in all colors and sizes--she has an Esty shop--
and I ordered the white wool and it is already on it's way to me!!!
Gotta get going on this one as the next block comes out on Friday!!!

and I got his wool piece finished over the week end--
and I had a large piece of brown felt in my wool box--
so using it for the back/batting piece--so this needs to be basted--
then hand quilted--

I also zigzag the edges to these 3 pieces--
in this pile is 5 yards of white white flannel--
for the backing on the quilt I am (suppose to be working on this month!!)
 making for my bed--
a one yard of white on white design ( that is terribly stiff feeling)
and 2 yards of white(but really looks a bit off  white) flannel for my design wall--
all these need to be thrown in the washer and dryer--
so I had filled a bobbin with too much thread when I was hemming a t-shirt over the week end--
so used it up  on these pieces edges so they won't ravel in the washer!!

and this is the project I am working on now--
this was another one I had in my wool drawer that was all prepped--
the last one I have in there did get some work done on it over the week end too--
so it is now ready to start!!!

Now I have to decide whether to finish the flower wool mat--
OR--
work on the rabbit and wagon???????

But first--
I need some chocolate!!!!!!!!!!

Enjoy the moments, di

This is what I want for Valentines Day--

  3. My gosh, girl! Your wool basket must have been bursting at the seams. You just keep pulling more and more out of there. You'll certainly never have a chance to get bored. We got home last night, and I went to a sewing group today. Felt good to get some girl time.
