And on the design wall is Block 2 of Fat Cat Pattern's 2015 BOM. It is a little wrinkled because I was quickly tearing the stabilizer away so I could get it on the wall.
The close-up shows most of the stitches. Again mostly I used the button hole stitch and a smaller, similar stitch on the hearts. And I did try a new stitch on the arm icing but it didn't have a name, at least on my machine.
Yesterday I went to buy some fusible from my machine dealer and found that she is no longer carrying it. She said that this is a new product by Babylock and everyone who uses it likes it. So I bought 5 rolls because I use a lot and I wanted to start a new project.
And then I came home and began using it. So far all I have done is draw on it and cut the pieces out. I did also pick a couple of the fabrics but that's as far as I got. I have to keep this a secret as it is a gift but as soon as I get it done and given I will share it.
This past week saw my new cart come home. Currently it is residing in the living room as I have not yet moved the furniture around to make room for it in the bedroom.
In the meantime I have been bringing some of my quilts out to see them stored on it. Each night I have been sleeping under one and then putting it on the cart. Pretty soon I will run out of quilts since I have given more away than I have kept. But now I can see I need to make more, and more, and more. ;-)
And here is the crowning day of last week, a visit from two of our great grandchildren: Scarlett and Skylar. They were here on a short visit from North Carolina and now are back home.
Sometimes I am amazed that we have been married for 54 years, have 4 children, all over the age of 46, have 9 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. All of this coming out of a college romance.
As usual I will be linking with Patchwork Times and What a Hoot. And after I check them out I will be back at work in the studio. Have a great week. Gari
