It's time again for the Slow Sunday Stitching link-up at Kathy's Quilts. This week, all I have done is slow stitching.
This quarter on 2019 Finish-A-Along I did myself in again by having my list heavy on hand projects. And also on One Monthly Goal. I said I would get three of these Father Christmas blocks done, and I was able to get that done.by working all day and all evening on this one. That little puppet thing was giving me a little trouble but I'm going to leave it the way it is.
Wednesday the new block for Hospital Sketches, the BOM by Barbara Brackman came out and I was able to get this done. I love how it came out. It is called Mountain Laurel.
The last project I am trying to finish up this month is another old, old UFO,probably from a class I had in 1997. It came out of this primitive book.
This is their version. It is called Sweet Annie. In my box with this UFO were 2 pieced backgrounds, 2 Annie's, and that was it. What I also loved about this project was the stenciled fabric border.
This is my version. I am still working on the embroidery on the crazy patched pieces. As I am also a crazy quilter, it is hard doing my stitches primitive-like. I sort of attached her to the background with sloppy blanket stitch, by I have been getting more regular as I go along.
I knew I had a primitive sort of lace stencil somewhere but I could not find it. I spent 2 days looking for it in my sewing room and craft room/office. My craft room really needs a thorough cleaning. I hate to admit, but I can't open the closet door because things have fallen. I have a whole stack of stuff I plan to sell on Etsy, quilting books, stitchery books, and they have been sitting on the counter at least 7 months now.
In searching I found this piece of paper lace, I thought maybe I could use this as a stencil but it just curls up when it gets wet.
All of a sudden last night I had a thought pop into my head that maybe my stencils were in the hall closet and I found it. I knew I had it, because I had stenciled a cabinet with the upper part before.
So I should be able to stencil the border pieces of fabric and have them dry while I am finishing the slow stitching on Annie.
Linking up with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over and see what everyone is doing. It is one of my favorite weekly activities!
