Slow stitching Sunday....

Today I will be doing a little unstitching on this TATW project. It seems they all line up great....except the yellow. I have them in rows of three right now but that yellow needs to get ripped off the teal... and then checked and fixed so it will fit. I suspect it is the 5th round from the corners that is causing issues but a ruler check will confirm it. Of course... that row is the middle one so until that is fixed... it is at a  stand still. 

My other hand stitching project right now is the Midget Appliqué. I ran out of blue sashing strips... so need to cut and prep some more. I do have two attached and two more ready to attach onto the midget appliqué rows. At least all the blocks are into rows of seven at this point. Going into the home stretch on this one and I am so excited to get it to a top stage.


For now... breakfast is done and cleaned up (omelets, sausage and hash browns). Time for a quick shower for me while the kids are picking up the play room. We need to clear out that whole room (finished 2 car garage area which is the playroom, sewing area and storage) for the AC guy who is coming for the AC cleaning tomorrow afternoon. Hmmmm if I clean up my area maybe I can sew a bit =).
I'm linking up today with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching and Oh Scrap.

  8. What a nuisance but I guess it won't look right unless it's fixed. Midget Appliqué is looking great, the blue was a good choice.
