Iris Project Update

In August of 2021, I shared the Iris project in a post.

I was side-tracked by other things, including a nine month wait for a part to repair Betty Boop.

But I am on track now, and thread painting has begun!

All of the thread painting will be done with the feed dogs down and a free motion foot attached. I am using whatever shiny threads I have in my stash, most of it Sulky and Wonderfil rayon.

This was supposed to be a birthday gift, but because of shipping issues (waiting for that part that was sitting on a cargo ship), it has now become a Christmas gift!

Quilt On!

One Ringy Dingy

I downloaded Pat Sloan’s One Ringy Dingy pattern as soon as I saw it back in 2017.  I love the nostalgia of it, and I knew I had to have it.

Why did it take me so long to make it?

I don’t know.

But now it is finished and on display.

I love it!

Quilt on!  Don’t wait for someday…what if it never comes?

Sitting Pretty – Finished!

Slow and steady wins the race.  I can take Sitting Pretty off of my UFO list.  Hooray!

Sweetness isn’t normally something I would want to make, so it must be the floral theme of the design that attracted me to it.

In any case, I enjoyed working the hand embroidery, and the wall hanging turned out cute.

A few close ups:

Hmmmm.

As I upload these photos, I see that I forgot to add a few button embellishments.  I’ll take care of that soon.

Sitting Pretty Update 2

I am making progress with Sitting Pretty.

The borders are on, and the quilt top is pin-basted.

On to the quilting.   After June, I think.

I am getting my ‘Grandma Fix’.  Five grandchildren, 2 daughters, and a son-in-law will be visiting this month.

YIPPEEEEEEEE!!!!
