Some days, even when you don’t have much to do, you just can’t quite seem to get it done! I did a little bit of the beading on my Neighborhood Walk piece. And then I wasn’t happy with my original bead choice for the rest of it, so now I’m in beading indecision time again. And it took two trips to the bead stash to get this far!
But I got a new beading book for Christmas so after I finally decide, I will have some new things to try.
Yesterday was a quick decision and basting of my next UFO. I really like the batik Flying Geese one and so I’m going to get it done for ME!
I have had some pink batik and an orange-y print batik for years, sitting on the shelf waiting for the right project. And much as I hate to piece backs, 3 big pieces is perfectly fine!
Check out that first picture to see how perfect they are for this quilt!
I’m so glad that I stocked up on some variegated threads the last time I ordered because I also had the perfect one for this quilt.
And the surpising part is how quickly the quilting is going! I had a little bit of time today and got a bit more than half of the big squares finished. I’m quilting free form leaf shapes in a large size……soooo much better than my usual intense fill-up-every-inch stitching.
No idea what I’m going to put in the flying geese parts or the wide border but that is normal for me!
Stuff to do the next couple of days, so that’s probably it for this week. Not much hope of any more this coming weekend, either, since it’s a hockey tournament weekend for the grandson. Can’t wait for that…watching those kids play is so much fun. AJ’s other grandma doesn’t have as much fun, though. She says she gets too stressed by the competition AND the possibility of injury. I guess after watching hockey all my life that I am more inured to that than she is! Let’s go, Ann Arbor Wolverines!!!!
