Hi everyone! As it’s Monday, and I usually try to work on Scarlet Letter’s Mary Gail (but haven’t managed to today!) I thought I’d start off by sharing my progress on her.
She tends to get pushed to the side a little, mostly I think because I’m looking on her as a year long project so in my head I’ve got plenty of time! Who am I kidding, here it is March and when I started out in January my ‘plan’ was to complete the bottom right hand ‘page’ of the chart by the end of this month!!! If I don’t step up a gear I doubt that that will be happening! I think I’m going to try for a Mary March (March Mary?!?!) and make sure I give her more attention.
Next up is BBD’s Hannah Lovina Joslin from Honeysuckle Manor. Such a pretty one and I’m exercising huge self-control only stitching on her on Wednesdays. I think all of us in the IG SAL feel much the same way. She is very hard to put down!
I’ve changed the house slightly, it’s more like the house of the person I have in mind for the personalization.
I’ve been good to my word and worked a little more on BBD’s Loose Feathers 2011. I’m going to be having a little company on this one. Cindy of Never Enough Thyme suggested we have a mini SAL and keep each other going as she’s been in a similar situation as I was with this one. Having company is exactly what I need to keep working on this one!
And remember the quilt class? Well, here are my strips all ready to be sewn together. After I uploaded this picture I realised there was a bit of fluff on one of the squares – ignore it – it’s not there any longer!!!!!
Sewing the strips together is the next part and I’ve been feeling a little daunted by that but Deb over at Threadgatherer said what I needed to do was use pins, pins and more pins so, hopefully I can keep everything aligned and by the end of class this evening I’ll have something resembling a quilt top!!
Until next time……
