A Little Progress on Several Fronts
On the quilting front, I did get Chicken #4 quilted.
I am really having fun putting those little feathers on the tail feathers.
Then I moved down to the center row. To make my quilting easier I decided to start this row by quilting the 9 patches. I am doing waving lines in the squares. While I am stitching them I think of the chickens that wander in our yard. They tend to wander very much like the way the quilting lines go.
I did get the Weave quilt top done. I plan to put a brown binding on whenever it gets quilted. Now I just need to either start something else or spend some time making backings for the tops that are waiting in the quilting queue.
And I used all my resting time to work on my first sock.
Much to my surprise, I am not having problems working with the double pointed needles. I put the point protectors on but don’t really need them, I just think they are fun.
But from what I can see I still have a long way to go.
