BACK IN THE SADDLE

 For the last couple days--I have been back into the sewing mood--so whoever sent me some 'mojo' from my last post Thank you!!!

A couple weeks ago--I cut out '16' tiny little Dresden fan blades-

I actually cut enough for '2' plates--and got them hand pieced-and one is now appliqued onto a background piece--the other one is pined on ready for applique--not sure what I am doing with the center yet--but today I cut enough little blades for 3 more plates!!!

Yesterday--I finally had to take time to make some more face masks too--



these '2' are just my 2 layers of cotton fabric--

and these '2' have a 3rd layer inside of them--




The main ones I made 14 months ago--were getting 'tacky' looking and boring!!!!!

I also got a pretty order in the mail--from Granny's Legacy--


I needed some new colors in my wool stash--I do have a couple three- or more- projects waiting in line for me to do in wools--and look what else I got there--


Some itty bitty scissors--they are sooo cute--and I hope will help in cutting those small curves in wool pieces!!!

Today I worked at alot of prep work--got the '4' blocks for this months Di book project all planned out and even have one block of applique nearly done--will photo when it is done!!!

And I have been working on the Hand piecing project--am in the process of sewing all the blocks together into one big block now--


And I have been working real hard to get outside every day-except on Sunday and on Sunday we finally got some much needed rain--had a couple three or so nice rain storms--so that was nice!!!

ENJOY THE SPRING AND ALL THE THINGS IT BRINGS OUR WAY--(OR FALL IF THAT IS YOUR SEASON NOW!!)

LUV, DI

  1. The Dresden plates are very pretty! I try to get out every day, too. Easier now Spring is on it’s way, although we have been having snow and cold winds - so even Stella runs back in :)
    Stay safe,
