I have not done as much slow stitching on my Hugs and Kisses as I would have liked this week - but I did make some progress. Almost done the second side of the first border.. that corner is coming up!
I also got to try a new marking tool. My grey fons and porter chalk pencil got to the point of breaking whenever I sharpened it. I know I have a blue somewhere and white and yellow but darned if I could find them when I needed them. Yellow was later found in my take with me bag but would not show up on my background! A trip to Joanns with a coupon on Veterans day and I got this..... It actually works really well. Nice line drawn through the template and has stayed on this week while I was working on the border. I love that it came with lots of white and different colors as well.
I also starting prepping some more appliqué blocks. I just need to pull fabrics later today so I'll have my car line hand work this week. I have 10 to go in this series of blocks. There was a recap of my blocks shown here last week.
I'm linking up with Kathy's Quilts today and can't wait for this evening when I can snuggle under my quilt and put some soothing stitches in.
