Yes, I have been procrastinating. I don’t know why, but I haven’t felt like sewing for a while. I guess basting quilts is not all that exciting.
There has been some overtime at work.
And I did make a gooseberry pie.
Hubby will be picking cherries today, so a cherry pie will be made.
Getting outside and practicing my photography has been lots of fun.
And I have totally finished every stinking seam; that is, stitched in the ditch and removed all of the basting safety pins from this quilt:
I could actually call it done, but I am not. The fun part begins. There will be some free motion quilting happening.
I also started a new project.
I saved alphabet pincushion embroidery patterns that Jenny of Elefantz so generously posted on her blog in 2018. I haven’t worked embroidery in quite a long time, and I’d really like to get back to it. This is an easy way to do that.
I took a white tea towel and divided it into sections for each letter.
Then I traced each letter with a blue washout marker. The first marker that I tried had too heavy of a tip, so thank goodness that it will wash out!
My tracing set up is a clear plexiglass table that Hubby made for me, and an Ott light that I have slid underneath.
All the letters of the alphabet are traced; one in each square.
The letter A is embroidered.
I intend to stitch the letter B today.
And bake a cherry pie.
Stay healthy! Stay safe!
