I’ve been busy the last few days working on a quilt for Xmas for a friend. I’ve finally gotten the top completed, I’ll pin it Sunday and start quilting it on Monday. If I’m lucky I’ll have it ready for binding by the holiday and can be working on that after we eat! I can’t post any pics until after Xmas, I don’t know if she reads my blog or not!
The last 2 evenings I spent working on taking embroidery out of a jacket for my dad – someone gave him the jacket and the words just didn’t make sense for him to keep it on there. It was hard, but it looks pretty good – you can’t even tell the stitching was there!
I have about 8 DJ blocks I’ve completed in the last week, I’ve just been too busy to post them yet! I’m up to 33 blocks and 1 triangle (649 pieces) completed. The triangle was easier than I thought because it was paper pieced! Since I’m going to work on pinning the quilt Sunday, maybe I’ll work on more blocks tomorrow night after I get home. My mom, sister and I are going to Kidron, which is Amish country in Ohio. We’ve been making it an annual trip the last 3 years, The Amish Door has AWESOME food! You will never leave there hungry! I will be picking up some fabric at Hearthside Quilt Shoppe in Kidron for my DJ quilt that I will be using as the sashing. So I will be able to start putting rows together soon!
Time to go and relax on the couch until bed!
