Here we see the beginning of my interpretation of Deck-Aid The Halls by The Fat Quarter Shop. These are my gingerbread men, the first step.
And this is the second step, stars. They are only 4 1/2” and are supposed to be attached to additional strips of white. However, once again I am already thinking of ways to make changes, to make this my own. In fact I am thinking of how I can make it very personal for someone else. Think, think, think.
Then, as a complete departure, I made this pillow for DH. The “newspaper” page was quite long so I wrapped it up and over the inner pillow. DH picked out the fabric and asked for a pillow: it is really nice to be able to make something for him that he really wants.
I also started stitching the applique on my owl blocks. I am appliquéing them with black thread and a new, to me, stitch. I am not sure I like it as it is 4 stitches forward and then a bite into the applique. I may go back to the one I have been using.
The last thing I have worked on so far this week is the beginning of the backing for the Funky Chickens top. I am doing it in strips and hope to have it on the frame by Friday.
I don’t know how long this surge of energy will last but I hope it keeps going for a while longer.
Have a great week, Gari
