JANUARY 2016 Finishes
I'm Backkkkkkkkkkkkkkk ! so with the resolution to keep this blog up to date this year ,,, Here is Januarys progress...
I did the Bonnie Hunter quiltville mystery with instructions given every week till finished... its HUGE, she uses many many scraps and many many pieces.
We got dolled up for a date night,,, that deserves a new pic !
Christmas 2016 quilt was sketched and started..
This was Plan A of a new quilt using batiks.. you sew big panels of color,,, then slice it up... when you straighten the edge it makes a neat curve,, bargello style... then with each piece numbered you re assemble.. for some reason my fabric buckled and bowed and ticked me off.. made me fuss,,,,,,,,,, sooooooo Onto Plan B.. I recut it all while Nancy was here and will do a braid with the leftovers......... gotta have a plan B ,, LOLL
We've had a fair amount of snow to keep us hibernating,,, and snooping TX reality and Park sites while the wind blows.... The RV looks sad setting there snowbound and the gate piled with snow.
Our Deck and fencing is a work of art.
Here's the combined finishes of January. The Christmas '16 is not quilted yet. The Quiltville Mystery next in line to be quilted. The pink and green is made of upholstery and curtain samples, something new to work with! On the floor are the Three batiks quilts made with Hoffman International Fabrics they donated, now quilted and ready for use.
and then there's a bit of quiet time.... sketching dreaming of new color combos, wishing for spring... Yet savoring the hibernation and sewing time.......Cheeers ! my Dears !
