This is all I have to show for a weeks worth of sewing.** Well, I had more but for some reason my photo program has decided that if I name a photo, it discards it. I have no idea where the pictures went but they are GONE. These are my applique pieces for Henrietta Whiskers, Block 5. They are just resting on the ironing board, waiting to be pressed to the background and then appliqued in place. I plan to prep Block 6 before I complete 5 and then I will have both to complete and I will be caught up, with this BOM.
I also made the two blocks for my LQS BOM. They are Underground Railroad blocks, made with batiks. I will get new pictures done so they can be seen later.
I did get the quilting all done on this batik quilt. This isn’t a good picture but I was afraid to monkey with it for fear it would disappear.
Here is the back. I love the color and the quilting shows up so well on the black stripes.
And, last but not least, here is my poinsettia from Christmas. There are only about 3 very pale red leaves now but we get new green ones almost every day and it is very healthy. I have never had one of these live anywhere near this long so I am really excited. And, actually, very few plants live long here (black thumb, you know).
**This has been the week that wasn’t sewing. Every day I was planning to work in the studio but every day DH has come up with something that has taken me away from it. I have been to Walmart, twice ($$), out to eat (several times and I am not complaining), moved furniture both in the house and studio (both places because DH wanted me to do something else that required furniture moving), and hours and hours of dealing with our internet provider who just Friday seems to have gotten everything working again. Not complaining, just explaining.
