|Where I finished up "The Byrum Quilt"|
Look for a post Sunday for Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy as I will be linking there and delighted that (once the batting arrives to the pinning party Friday) the pinning will be over and the hand quilting will begin! Yippee :)
In the meantime.. I do have something fun to share ... I have been doing some hand piecing on my hexi star flower table topper...
I started this project to try multi-tasking... as hand piecing affects different parts of my fingers than hand quilting... so we shall see how it goes with both projects going!!! Very soon I am hoping!!! lol
Meanwhile, my honey has put together a little railroad for himself on a piece of plywood we salvaged for free (someone hurricane shutters they decided they didn't need... in Florida really???)! Check this system he has designed!
He has 3 working trains... one from the 60's, one from the 70's and one from the 90's all working together on the track he bought on eBay for a deal and has carefully sanded each piece to get great connections all around.. screwed in each piece of railroad... and the trains love it! So fun that we have interesting hobbies... to us anyway! ha :)
For my hand piecing project I am staying organized and using my portable design wall to hold my pieces in place together :).. my bestie Connie made them.. along with my design ideas .. during her July visit for our birthdays... this was my birthday present and I think she rocked it!!!
Well.. must go for now and fondle my fabric! lol
