This past week was relatively quiet in social activities, so I got in a lot of sewing time. I am in 2 blog hops this month, and I have been busy sewing away on my projects. I am in the midst of quilting my Dust Off a Quilt Book project, and my second project, for Little Green Apples I am machine piecing the units together, and hand stitching the rows together in the evenings.
I am also slowly machine quilting my Father Christmas quilt. I have entered this one in my guild's quilt show in April.
I was reading a blog somewhere about free motion quilting and wearing gloves. My quilting gloves are pretty much shot and I was thinking about buying some new ones. Anyway this blogger talked about cutting a couple of pieces of that rubber shelf liner and using that to grip the quilt. I always dislike taking the gloves off and on to pull up bobbin thread etc. I cut a couple of pieces of shelf liner, and it really works, and I love it! Didn't cost me anthing!
The other thing I have been slowly working on is my SAHRR. Quilting Gail had the prompt this past week which was pinwheels. I cut out a bunch of half square triangles with my Accquilt #5 die.
I pulled into my driveway the other day and there was this squirrel. He just looked at me, and went about doing whatever he was doing. I hope it wasn't burying anymore acorns though.
For Slow Sunday Stitching I will continue working on my Little Green Apples Project.
Be sure and stop by Monday for the Dust off a Quilt Book Blog Hop hosted by Bea @Beaquilter.
Thanks for stopping by!
