|my pull for the penny patch quilt along|
i'm so grateful for the making Christmas link up because it has encouraged me more than i thought possible. i knew people would say nice things like, "you can do it!" and they did. what i didn't expect was that i'm actually believing them. i worked my fingers off this weekend and made tons of progress. i have so many funny moments to share, but i'll have to save those for later. let's just say every seam i've sewn has been unpicked and resewn at least once, probably twice, and in some cases more.
my first chore was getting my sewing space back in order.
surprisingly, i did get this space whipped into a kind of order on Friday morning so i could sew. jill had to take her husband's car in, so she couldn't come sew with me. being on my own wasn't as companionable, but i got lots done. i got binding made and on "taite."
so here's the updated Christmas list:
d1 - "plus a diamond" needs handbinding to back
s1 - actually wants a stacked coins quilt now and to help me sew it. how this is going to work with it being a Christmas present i haven't decided for sure.
d2 - "taite" needs handbinding to the back
s2 - "bandwidth" still not started
d3 - "twirly" is a completed flimsy - yay!
d4 - pillow sham untouched, bottom of the list
d5 - "paris daydreams" still a flimsy
penny patch qal - fabrics selected
