Good Morning Quilters! I’ve been up north at the cabin all week, and only took embroidery with me. The next basket for the May Day Quilt is completed except for the French knots. As usual, there are plenty of French knots. The knots will be finished by next Monday though. It is exciting to be near completion on these 30 baskets.
The second embroidery project I’ve worked on is finishing the borders of the redwork quilt UFO. Here are the four borders:
I realized while they were on the floor (my design wall up here) for this picture that I haven’t even measured how long each border will need to be. As you realize by now, I’m more into enjoying the process than doing the finishing up details part of UFOs. But it seems like a lot of my old, old UFOs are all getting near the finish line at once. And that’s a good thing.
The Red Delicious apple core quilt needs a label and hanging sleeve, so no completed pictures of it for you until that happens. That is one of my goals for this week.
And my tests I talked about last week are happening tomorrow. (Brain scan, Carotid arteries ultrasound, and heart echo test) All day spent in waiting rooms for three different tests will give me lots of French knot time won’t it? And embroidery is very calming for me, so there is that too.
What are you working on this week? I hope you link up your blog and show us a picture. I apologize for not adding comments to your blogs this week. I was in a funk - but I did read them all, and this week I’ll be sure to make comments. You all do such amazing work. Please add your blog to the Design Wall Mondays linky party below, and give us the pleasure of reading your blog. Thanks!
My requests of you, if you link up, are two things: Mention the Design Wall Monday linky party within your blog post, and also that you provide a link back to this particular blog post (not just to the generic smallquiltsanddollquilts.blogspot.com)
