I brought some wonderful new solids from Moda that go with the jelly roll I have in my stash. I really want to try one of those quilt as you go quilts in a chevron pattern. Since jelly rolls are already cut in 2 1/2 strips, that's half the battle. This is going to be the carrot that I dangle in front of myself to work on AFTER I get the two completed quilt tops assembled. Good winter time projects.....nice warm quilt across your lap in the evenings as you stitch up the binding. Again, sounds like a great plan.
Next up....remember me being so happy to pull Blessed Be out of the finished basket and then I pinned and framed it...... it's seasonal and it looks good right.......well, thanks for an observant reader........seems I missed something else......
It is so obvious now that Mary told me. She was concerned she was being a "Debbie Downer".....not in the least. We stitchers like constructive input. OK, so sometime in January I will unframe, unpin, add those 9 missing stitches and put it back together again. It is true what my kids say.....I am a dingbat.
Miss Mary Mack is coming along well. I haven't put much time in her since my floss arrived but she is getting there. I think I have finalized the fabric I plan to use as the back of the pillow and I am planning to coffee stain this piece after I have completed the stitching. I know....it is out of order but I want to make it look old and worn and faded at the same time. The WDW Molasses is not quite a black brown as WDW Mascara but I am not about to restart this gal and I am thinking - operative words "I am thinking", I can create a sepia tone effect.
Last up, be watching for my next post on the Corsica River Stitch-a-long. I may have some good news as far a shopping of supplies as well as I have planned a suggested completion schedule. Be on the lookout on the 22nd of the month for an update.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week in stitches everyone!
