Because I am keeping Helen company I have opted to do the hand quilted sewing during the daytime. This allows me to still sit and chat with her, watch a film, be there for a cuddle. At the same time as allowing me to accomplish something so that we are both happy. Because I think I would go doolally just sitting there all day doing nothing.
So all you concerned individuals (you know who you are) who wanted to make sure that I got on with Emily's quilt, I am - much more quickly than I thought I would be. Stitch by stitch I am making slow but steady progress. This might be the first finish of 2012, not the Terrain quilt, if the current situation continues.
|All five of the applique hearts are now stitched.|
|I am working on the bit that is a partial Irish chain.|
|And the border has stitching on both sides now.|
Thankfully the unpredictability of life does not preclude good post from arriving. I have received the first of my orders to upgrade my Heather Ross collection in aid of the future quilt.
|I now have some bicycles.|
And a couple of wee scrap extras that the vendor put in which I do appreciate.
