After all the beauty we saw yesterday I felt this was a cool meme too...
Mother Nature is full of surprises and she does have the best box of crayons for sure!!!
And Speaking of Crayons... I have some watercolor pencils I pulled out to use for the 1st time this past week!!!
Here is an example of the fabrics you will see used...
The HST border is being produced as I make each block
The next border will have larger hst's that have the solid olive green on one side and neutral strings on the opposite side....
The burgandy red and cream herringbone fabric will go around that and be the final binding and
A wide (7") border of the goldenrod yellow will have an uber cool stencil design on it in blackberry thread big stitch style.
Can you tell I am excited about this quilt??? It will be hand quilted ... so this progress... while being pieced on my vintage 301 Gloria... will be a slow stitched finish!!!
Last week I shared progress to the left of needle nanny you see at the top of the photo below...
Here is a photo of my space and set up... I LOVE IT!!!
Linking my hand quilting progress to Kathy's Slow Stitching Sunday gang of funloving slow stitchers HERE! Between fixing a few things and helping my honey with a few household things... I will be making progress on this triangle pattern on my quilt!
I found this cool mini ironing board on facebook Marketplace this week and Friday we arranged to buy it for $8!!! What a steal this vintage wood and metal hinged dual sided board is. Probably for the 1950's or 60's too!!!
Friday I received these 2 pillow fronts hand quilted by my bestie Connie!!!! Yay!!!
Here is the oatmeal fabric one on our bed this morning... I believe Connie bought both of the tops at "The Stencil Company"
I am planning to make myself a wristlet wallet soon... so I have pulled fabric for that ....
I found a great youtube tutorial for the wallet of my choice I can add the wristlet with donated hardward from my current wristlet wallet... and I bought a new phone case that now allows me to push all the buttons much easier than the leather one that was way past it's usefulness did... this photo is from eBay where I found this sweet swanky case for under $5 including free shipping and it came FAST too :D
My favorite stretchy bracelet with beads on it broke the other night... so I have been looking for elastic string to string it... I thought I had some but haven't located it just yet! lol
So I found this one for $1.50 in Robbinsville yesterday at a Thrift Shop we enjoy going to every now and then. Right is a close up of it on my wrist... it is a very light pink.. :)
Well... it has come to an end now... time to cloase but as you can see I take my own advice and am truly finally Living a Life I love!! Are you???
