Just a quick post today as the day is fast disappearing on me!
Last night I joined in with Cheryll and 27 other sewers for Friday Night with Friends..... working away in the company of others around the globe is always a nice feeling.
I spent the evening cutting more diamonds for my Evandale quilt, which I am working on for The Country Yard. I haven't really talked about it much; it is an 'in the background' project.
I've run out of papers so I have to start sewing the joined (EPP) blocks onto the next border. Then I can remove some papers to re-use. Hopefully that will be tonight's armchair sewing.
|The result of my FNWF...thank you ladies for your company :-)|
The diamonds I cut last night will become the wee diamond blocks seen to the
left of the photo.
This year I've decided to join in and link up with the One Monthly Goal 'team' again ... I started doing this last year and found it a great motivator...at the start of the month set a goal, it doesn't matter if it is big or small (simply that it is achieveable), and at the end of the month report back with your success in completing it!
Last year Heidi of Red Letter Quilts was running it but it has now passed on to Patty of Elm Street quilts.... I used it as a way to work on completely hidden away projects that would not have got a look in otherwise. (Like the cushions I completed last month - I was too late to link them up as a monthly goal).
I couldn't decide what to work on but after washing some runners and hanging them up to dry —
When I found it and spread it out, I remembered I hadn't been happy with the light tan fabric of 3 of the applecores. They don't look so bad in the photo but really do stitck out like sore thumbs.
First step then, replace those 3 applecores (sadly I no longer have access to a Go-cutter!) and then quilt and bind. No sweat huh. We'll see :-)
There do seem to be linkys left right and centre for all sorts of things. As well as great motivators, I've found them to be a good way of staying focussed and a way to share the stitchy love with like minded people.
Today I've been working away on a secret project - no further sharing for now..all I can say is that I LOVE how it's turned out.
