I did finish the Country Life wall hanging earlier in the day and managed to get dh to stand still long enough to take a photo.
I think I'll hang this one in the sewing room. It's a good feeling to see the ufo pile slowly get smaller. I can actually now see the quilt on the bed, rather than just a huge pile of bags filled with projects.
My plans for the 4 season's swap flew out the window. I just wasn't happy to use the swap item as a guinea pig for my free motion quilting skills, or lack of them. So a new plan was needed. Here's a little snippet of what's ahead.
I still need to work out how it's going to be set, have a few idea floating around that void I sometimes call a brain, but nothing definite yet.
Thanks to gwen who has given me a couple of stores in Germany to try and locate the Japanese red work magazine. As it turns out it doesn't look like I'll be able to locate it, always the way isn't it, something you really want is no longer available. So instead I'll have nights filled with dreams of all the beautiful projects that could have been.
Happy Stitching and thanks for stopping by and chatting.
A little PS, I just received an email from Margaret over at A sampler of Stitches letting me know she was in the process of tracking down this magazine from Japan. Quilters/Stitchers truely are the most generous people.
