It is a long weekend for my household.
The kids got excited that Greg ordered a new table for the front room to move out the flying console and PC from his office to out there with the PS3. It is becoming a true game room and they are actually going through and have tossed or put things in the donate pile. I even heard the vacuum cleaner running! The big drapes that came with the house are down and it really lightens up the room. I plan to repurpose that curtain rod to hang quilts!
For hand work - I'll be adding some hand quilting to this little table runner. I had them as square in a square but they were never happy with how I wanted to put them together so they got unpicked yesterday into flying geese and seemed happy with this layout. It is 10x15 and will finish up perfect for the little side table in the front room.
I'll also be adding some more embroidery - buttonhole stitch around the fused applique on this cute little row by row runner. I have never done this stitch before but love how it makes the ducks look.
I'll make my Hexagon for the day... and will need to prep more for this week.
Then there are the flowering snowball blocks. I did cut out another 4 blocks and figured out I only need to mark the stitching lines on the white peel part and the middle square! These are so fun to stitch with the gentle curve. I think just this block and die are so worth getting the Accuquilt GO! for my birthday. I have the 4 inch drunkard path die on my wishlist...... it comes in a few sizes but I think that one would work the best? Until then, I'll keep busy with this one and the 8 inch cube it came with. I think I will cut out some parts each month in the color of the RSC Challenge and have the makings of a scrappy quilt later this year.
Head on over and see what everyone else is slow stitching this weekend over at Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching linkup.
