With emphasis on the sew!
I enjoyed another really productive week. Really, really productive. But before I get to that, I had some really cute helpers at work on Thursday . . .
Thursday evening was guild night, and I'd read on the Fabric Therapy blog that Teresa was considering driving into Huntsville to attend the meeting (she's just moved to Alabama in the past six months or so). I emailed her and suggested that I couldn't make the meeting, but I was having dinner with my Stitcher's group beforehand, and she was welcome to join us and meet a few gals beforehand.
I took opportunities to stitch all week long . . . which is a little tough, as cold as it's been, because it takes a while to warm the Nook up to comfortable temps! But I've been determined and it's paid off nicely. Not only did I finish my two January ornaments, but finished an additional two, as well!
I also finished two sets of the swap blocks this week . . .
The Method" for piecing these nine patches. It's simple, quick, and easy, and I end up with two perfect blocks -- a negative and a positive -- with each pairing. I can see where this method would be particularly nice when piecing up smaller blocks!
Friday afternoon it started snowing. It was a pretty decent little snowfall, considering we're in the Heart of Dixie!
I tackled two UFOs to a near finish. My antique rose block (which remains unnamed) is in the process of being hand-quilted.
And I finally got off my duff and did something with the HST, faux ruched flowers piece. It's unnamed, too.
I used a touch of stash; between backings and bindings, it was a solid three-quarters of a yard! I'll nickel and dime that stash on down!
Linking up this morning with Patchwork Times and Kathy's Quilts. Have a blessing-filled Sunday and stay warm!!
