Well, not much has been getting done around my house. There are a host of reasons, Kevin and Haley both sick, plumbing issues and a very large chocolate lab who thinks she can sit on me while I try to sew.
I did make some progress on my two hand quilting projects. My Dog Bone dresser scarf is 45.5 inches long. I think I only need to add 2 more dog bones. This was mostly due to the Super Bowl. As I sat on the couch, I worked on this project.
The Flower Garden project now has a total of thirty flowers. I am thinking that when I join all these together, I might use a yellow. Not to sure, but that is where my mind is at right now. To get a view of all these talented ladies hand work, click on the links below.
Well, on my last Hand Quilt along post, I did not have a photo of y “other” project. I sort of call this the swim team project. Mostly because I work on it during swim practice and al the long weekend meets. For tis project, I am making hexie flowers. My long-term plan is to pick a background fabric and make a quilt from all of them. So, at one time belonged to the Fat Quarter Shops mini charm club Fat Quarter Shops mini charm club. I got 4 different mini charms each month, so I have quite a collection of them. They are perfect for making these hexies. I use a solid center and then each charm pack will make seven flowers. I have no idea how many I will truly need, I will just keep making them.
My second hand quilt along project is my dog bones dresser scarf. This is my sit on the could project, because I am not capable of just sitting down and doing nothing. I need this to get to 54 inches. I am at about 36 inches. Still more work to do.
Thank Kathy for organizing this Hand Work Quilt Along. It will e great to see everyone’s hand work without all the searching. It is now at the tip of my fingers (and yours) .
Here is the list of others who said they would be joining in the Hand Quilt Along. I hope you all check out their blogs and maybe even join in the fun.
Well, I this is new to me. Seems like a really good idea. I have had much success with the One Monthly Goal. I am hoping that this one will give some extra incentive to get projects done. I have ambitiously put 6 projects on here. Yikes! I hate to lose, so I hope I can get them all finished along with the 10,000 other projects I will start along the way.
