I've been doing a lot of slow stitching this week. First I finished this month's assignment for Sweet Land of Liberty.
I've gotten 4 of these Buhl-Bushong blocks put together. I am paper piecing the crowns, and the rest is hand applique.
I have 4 more to put together today for my hand stitching.
I'm also blanket stitching these pieces for a penny rug called O My Stars. As this is one my list for the 2019 Finish-A-Long for Quarter 3, I am trying to get these done too.
I'll be linking up with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over and see what everyone is up to!
My grandson Jaeger this week was kind enough to make room in his already crazy schedule of school, water polo practice and water polo games to come help me put my Handiquilter back up. I bought one of the Handiquilter frames right after they came first came out. It involved taping some rails to a table and then attaching the units that hold the rails with clamps. At the time they did not have any machines to be used, and I bought a Juki TL 98E. DH elongated the rails, so I can quilt up to about 92 inches. When it is up, it is in my dining room. The rails are attached to a laminated particle board and it resides in my guest room when not in use. And also the banquet table it attaches too. I need some help getting them out of the guest room but I can set everything else up by myself.
I had put everything away in August because we were having a family dinner, and then I thought I was going to have Bunco here last week, as it was my turn to have dinner and Bunco. But our Bunco disbanded this month, as members have other activities they need to do. So I've been trying to get Jaeger to help me get my tables back out. I'm back in business now, and quilted one of my friend Nerissa's quilts yesterday, and will be ready to load the other one up.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
