~ Happy Sunday and Welcome to my Blog ~
October is finally here and for the northern hemisphere this means cool and crisp nights and bright and shining days... we are even getting some much needed rain intermittently too!
Meanwhile I have been focused on a different project this week... the turkey couple wall hanging!!!
I am working on this project at my desk so Molly and my honey are close by! I like this :)
Here is a shot I took while using a cool old thimble I keep close to the desk for bindings...
Several have asked about the stencil I used and it is here on the right... I may have gotten it online for sure but whether it was Quilt Stencils International or The Stencil Company I am unsure but I love it!!!!
I am marked this quilt before layering and pin basting this quilt. I used a Leonis water soluble pen that come 10 in a pack most economically on Amazon... spritzes away with water or when you wash it ... just don't press or iron it or leave it in a hot car .. that can set it! lolHERE <<< Check out Kathy's new header on her blog post and visit the participants now that you have stopped here :)
Also linking to my HQAL friends >>> Hand Quilt Along Links
This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another. If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.
Kathy, Margaret, Emma, Tracy, Deb, Susan, Nanette, Edith, Sharon, Karrin, & Gretchen
If you have a couple more minutes now please keep on viewing my blog and reading along... I got a surprise this week! YAY ME!!!!!
I got a cutting table... ok it is a buffet but it is ALL OAK and in excellent condition... we estimate it to be about from the 70's from the workmanship but it is NICE!!!
Molly didn't escape the changes... she got a much needed bath! lol
I got 8 napkins all together out of that amount... 9" x 18" and the fold in forths so nicely :)
Have a wonderful Sunday and thanks for stopping in no matter what day it is.. hope you have found solace and encouragement here!
