Nov. 25, 2009

Thanksgiving is almost here and the rest of the holidays are impending. So little time to finish my projects. I've started various new projects; the most recent is a potholder. I've never actually tried to make a simple potholder. When I first stared quilting, I made a small quilt first and then a twin sized bed quilt, no dawdling with small creations; doing potholders now seems a little backwards. I'll post photos once I've finished a few of them. Two of them are already slated for Christmas gifts. Hopefully I'll get those finished this weekend and then make a couple more for certain friends.
I'm still stuck in the phase of hand stitching all of my applique. I have yet to attempt to machine applique anything. I am hoping to work on this soon, perhaps with my next quilt project (which has to be finished in... January? I might be able to postpone it until March). I probably should get started on that one soon. This will require a trip to a quilt store. A real one. Not a mere fabric and crafts store like I normally frequent for such wonderful items as $1 sales on fat quarters. Maybe next weekend I can swing by Quiltworks Northwest and find some beautiful moda fabrics or Amy Butler. Still trying to decide wether to purchase the pattern online or wing it. I've never really been one for following patterns....

Anyhow, hope to post some pictures of completed work soon.
