What has to freeze over before I complete a project?
Well, whatever it is, it happened this weekend.
I contentedly sat next to the fire with needle work in hand
and completed both my afghan and this little bee table runner!
I love the bees, the colors, the gold accents and script.
I'm no so sure I'm thrilled with the other fabric I paired it with.
I was trying to get the colors in the bee print; however,
in retrospect, I would have toned it down a bit.
Same colors, just softer.
I still have to pluck a few threads and give it a little ironing.
The bee fabric is from Big Beautiful Bugs,
the other pieces I got at Ace Hardware in St. Clair, MO
which has a fabric shop in the back. I don't know
who makes that fabric and not sure I have the selvages.
Then I also completed my afghan.
I'm now on to quilting my Wickedly Easy Red fat quarter quilt.
I am trying free motion again, something I am not good at
but if you're going to learn, you have to just jump in.
This is my quilt so if it's not so good, no problem.
The first few areas were not good, in fact,
I unstitched a couple of them because they were so bad.
I won't use this batting again, it's a higher loft and I
think the low loft is easier, at least as I am learning.
I am really struggling with spirals and think I need to draw them
but following the lines is hard too.
Heck, I won't even show them to you!!
So for now, it's a learning stage.
Good or bad, it will be comfy!
And I'm having a good time.
