I did not get much time to sew or knit this past week. I had several appointments and some jobs to do around the house. I'm happy that the painting in the bedrooms has been done for a couple of weeks now and the new carpeting was installed on Friday so we are putting the furniture back into the rooms now. This is a project that will stretch over several days. We are going to add shelves to a closet so I can store my quilts in it and we have to find a new light fixture for our bedroom. New bookcases will be added in one room as well, but due to supply chain issues, it may be a while before we get them.
My October UFO is quilted now and I have attached the binding by machine. I changed the quilting in the on point four patches so there was a bit of un-sewing earlier in the week to remove the curved lines I had added previously. Funny how the stitches go in much faster than they come out!
The binding is dark brown and frames the quilt nicely. I have finished hand stitching one side of the quilt and will work on this again tomorrow for Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy.
This week, I have a challenge project to make for the Elgin Piecemakers and a border to add to a block for a round robin with the Toronto Modern Guild. Then, I will pull out another UFO that needs to be quilted.
Above, Finn is shown before his haircut. Below, he looks like he has lost a lot of weight and you can see his eyes now!
Our daughter has added more stitches to Dubrovnik...nearly done now. I wonder what city she will do next?
Have a great week!
