Another year of Quarantine
The vaccine is rolling, out, but OH SO SLOWLY. And I'm about dead last on our priority list (as it probably should be - no complaints!) so I just need to keep on going. I've felt the need for some slow stitching recently, which has done good things for the progress on a lot of old cross stitch UFO's. I finished the Band Sampler that I did as a round robin a while ago. It's beautiful, but with Mary Ellen gone I'll have to spend a LOT more than I used to to get it framed!
I've also completed "A Little Quakeresque" sampler - such a lovely project! And my "12 Days of Christmas" piece is done as well, although I did have to order more floss. I think it might end up as a pillow cover? I can't think of a place to hang in during the holidays.
My piecing list is actually pretty under control for a change. I decided to join in on a quilt along for "All the Good" and I absolutely LOVE how it's turned out. It was part of an attempt to use up my fabric. So I cut into that long hoarded stack of Prairie Tucker and it's definitely working! I also handed over the stack of William Morris prints to Mom, since she's working on the Farmer's Wife blocks.
My planning section has been updated to reflect the just-use-the-fabrics philosophy as well. A couple of them are kits that just need to be used, and a several are ones that I have all of the fabric already pulled. Some should be relatively quick finishes as well.
I finished two tops recently - Triple Barn Star went together very quickly. I also threw together another layer cake quilt using a very old fabric line. That was two layer cakes done! I also pulled out some patterns to use up three jelly rolls and some coordinating yardage.
