The week has been one of those parenting nightmares from hell. Kids... can't kill them... certainly can't live with them! However, we have survived - the dangling carrot of a trip to The Country Yard on Saturday (kidless) for a Stitch and Chat day helped combat the extra grey hairs and frown lines.
I did indeed finish the blanket stitch on this little Tweet:
And Block 39 of the modern sampler is a little odd... but perfectly formed! That makes me caught up for the week.
Tokyo Subway blocks 21 & 22 did finally get finished, just in time for the end of the month. September is PINK month... and Blocks 13 & 14 are under the microscope.
I also plugged away at the binding on Hometown Wagon Wheels quilt and made some good progress.
So my goals for the week were met - hooray.
What's up for this coming week?
Hand Work: time for a new project. Well, technically not new - one of the projects from Taupo Symposium, that I've just tucked away in the too hard basket, because it needed some serious preparation.
OK, in retrospect - it wasn't that bad and I don't know why I've put it off for the last month...
We have Panel One from Flower Pots by Kim Mclean.
Machine Applique: I think Taupo Tiles needs another airing... do we all remember what it looks like?
Piecing: and in the piecing department... hmmm, maybe some more of Camille Roskelley's Playground Blocks using Sweetwater's Reunion line.
Janet has been a bit naughty and has been giving me tension problems. Not all the time - sometimes she's really good - but other times, she grabs hold of the thread and just doesn't let go. Does anyone else have problems with free motion quilting tension that is intermittent?
