Another Design Wall Monday
This has been such a fun week. My work plan has been to do a little work on each project every day.
The first of the projects is Christmas Quilt #1. It is on the frame and I have been quilting one pass a day. It is an edge to edge panto.
I am quilting through the embroidery. They were done by 12 different people but I don’t think any of them will complain.
As you can see on the wall, I completed my Carol Doak BOM block for October and the applique on two funky chickens.
And in between all of these other projects I worked on frogs.
I drew, light fused, cut, fused and then appliqued most of them.
As you can see I did the legs with a blanket stitch and satin stitch for the bodies. Usually I don’t like the satin stitch but I do like using two different stitches for variety.
I still have 4 frog bodies to applique and all of the eyes. Then I will be embroidering their mouths and the fold in the legs. I forgot to take pictures of all 6 insect embroideries that will be the sashing cornerstones.
After all this work DH and I took Sunday off for taco pizza. Then a swing through Staples ($$), a visit to Publics for groceries (no tax in FL) and then to Chill for yogurt.
What you can’t see in this picture is the Decadent Dark Chocolate yogurt topped by the Cheesecake yogurt, topped by strawberries and blueberries. Oh, my, this was good and low in points, too.
Today will be mostly housework (except one pass on the frame) but then it will be studio all the way. I have to get a lot done because pretty soon it was the beginning of November and then I will have 3 new BOM blocks to make.
