My design wall shows that I am currently working on BOMs. I have all the appliqueing done on all of the completed blocks, not an easy feat. The blocks, again, went on the wall so that I can check out what fabrics I have used and then I can choose what I will use for the new ones, again 3 on a limb.
I began working on my BOMs with the new letters. I have to tell you that all those little curlicues were not easy to cut out but here they are, ready to go when the rest of the blocks are done.
So I got busy on the B is for basket. I have to admit that I have never made a basket block so I had to really read the directions carefully.
But I had no problem with the handle: I can do applique easy peasy.
And here we are, the basket is ready for applique. But that will have to wait until tomorrow.
I have been working on mug rugs recently. This is a free block from FatCatPatterns and an easy one for this purpose. He is done and ready for quilting.
And I got the applique done on the “no more coffee” mug rug. I think this is the look I have when I go to the pot and find that DH has taken the last of the coffee and didn’t refill the pot.
I even have two more coffee MGs ready to do the applique and I have drawn two more. These are going to be my “need to do some stitching” items. And they make me laugh every time I look at them so they are relaxing to work on.
Here, in the Deep South, we have finally gotten some nice weather. Today I was able to sit on the deck, with the sun shining and the temp at 72F, and knit. And we are supposed to have 60 – 70F weather for at least the next week and I am cheering!
I hope everyone who reads this has a great week. My plan is to sew, knit, sew, knit, and sew some more. Gari
