Last Sunday, I brought up this week's sewing projects from the basement sewing room to the dining room table where I have set up my temporary sewing space while Finn the grand-dog is here. The first order of business for the week was to finish quilting this table topper, started 7 years ago. As you can see, the binding is on and it is done! The blocks are Bonnie Hunter's Boxy Stars.
I don't know about you, but I am finding it hard to stay focussed on one thing for very long these days and tend to flit back and forth between projects. I did some counted cross stitch on the March pattern from Linens and Threads. I have to decide how I am going to use the other colours in this pattern...I have a few ideas floating around.
I started cutting and piecing the units for a new quilt that will be a gift. I only had .5 yards of the bird print so that limited how many blocks I could make to 51 four patches.
The other unit is an HST using white and a gray print. I am aiming for a barn raising layout which may or may not be asymmetrical. I need to make more HST's...
One day, when feeling quite rattled by all that is going on in the world, I picked up my knitting and made another dish cloth. I find the repetitive process calms me down and gets me back on track.
And, another one to add to the growing pile!
A friend from church is organizing the making of scrub hats for our local hospital staff. I dug into my stash and found some fabrics that I could use to make some hats...first up: Elvis!
My SIL purchased this fabric for me at Graceland many years ago and I could just never think of anything to make with it. I am sure it will bring a smile to someone's face when they see a doctor or nurse wearing this scrub hat!
My first batch of hats were delivered to the hospital today and I am in the process of making more. The pattern is from YouTube and can be found here.
We have been having some beautiful sunny spring days here this past week. Finn loves to go outside and sit or lay on the porch and watch the birds, squirrels, people and dogs go by. I read a book and said hello to the people walking by.
Today was Finn's 2nd birthday! No cake but he did get some apple pieces and peanut butter for his birthday treat.
My daffodils are popping out today and should be fully open tomorrow, I hope.
I will link up with Kathy and the slow Sunday stitchers in the morning.
