My hands have been kept busy with needle and thread of late. The autumn table mat shown earlier this week is now complete.
I added veining detail to the leaves which I think adds some richness to the mat. This is to be a gift for my SIL who has a birthday next week.
I am working on this winter scene right now. Stitching the pine needles is quite time consuming. I will have to turn on a good movie to get these done!
Yesterday was our guild's Quilt til you Wilt Day. This happens twice a year and is always a good opportunity to get lots of work done. I arrived at 830 am and was among the last to wilt at 800 pm. One of our guild members catered a delicious lasagna dinner for us which was a real treat!
I started out the day by working on a Christmas quilt. The pattern is Disappearing Nine Patch (or D9P , as I call it!) I had some Christmas charm packs that I wanted to use and added some stash that I had on hand. It is a generous lap size.
The colours are bright, cheery, and festive!
I worked on this next quilt which is a UFO of many years. I made it out of a jelly roll but hit a road block when I found one of the strips too dark. So it sat for a long time untouched. I decided to bring it with me and discovered I still didn't like it - the dark strips had to go! There was deconstruction followed by reconstruction. Eventually, by the end of the night I had 9 strips ready to be sewn together.
I was happy to spend the day with fellow quilters, enjoying their company, all while working on some quilting projects in dire need of attention!
