Today’s design wall is highlighting “the dragon”. I have appliqued about 2/3rd’s of one side of him. But this is going to go slow because I get really tired of wrestling with him. So I am going to give him about 1-2 hours a week until he is complete.
Beside the dragon are three strips of leftover pieces of Easy Street: those strips are really doubled. My plan is to sew these into the backing for Easy Street, maybe even this week.
I finally got a pretty good picture of the center of Easy Street, complete.
And here it is again, with the three borders I have decided on.
I only got the outer border fabric last Friday. I went to look only for the border fabric, BUT, when I walked in the first thing I saw was a sign for 20% off all batiks. I was really good and looked for the border fabric first but once it was in the cart, I was on the hunt. I didn’t buy a lot of each fabric but I did add to my batik collection.
The browns on the left will be used for an owl BOM I plan to start this week. The rest were just because I couldn’t not buy them.
And DH has found a new job at home. He has “thousands” of slides. He began teaching over 45 years ago and putting on high school/college musicals and plays . And he took slides of all of his productions until video came into being. So for Christmas I gave him a device which allows him to upload slides into his computer. And this week he got a slide viewer so he can sort his thousands of slides. This is our dining room table: we may never be able to eat there again.
So as you can see, we are both keeping ourselves busy and having fun. You can have fun, too, by going over to Patchwork Times to see what other quilters are up to.
