What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

Started 11/19/17 by MarciainMD; 267265 views.

I am working on the top left side of my applique on the leaves and vines, basted all of it on there yesterday.  Once that is all done (about a week) I just have the middle of the top and the two birds. 

What is everyone else up to?

I'm working on a sixty degree triangle quilt, that will have a dachshund block inserted in it.  The dachshund block is a modification of a pattern by Elizabeth Hartman. I want it to li more like the quilts recipients dog, going to have to do some thread painting on it.

Also doing the Jolly Snowflake Mystery quilt, from scraps and stash in Christmas prints. It will be an early Christmas gift.

Have my rescue quilt top back together now to sandwich and quilt.

When do you "move" back to CO?

All I am gonna say is soon. DH goes next weekend but I may stay just a tad longer.

I love Elizabeth Hartman's designs, they are so cute. Thread painting is really fun, can't wait to see a photo of what you are doing.

I am learning rug hooking...I have some hand woven fabric that I can get a crochet hook into...and I am looking at making a tree...If I like the process, I will invest in a real rug hook...but it has the same kind of end that a crochet hook has...so not too much difference...I cut up a bunch of my wool pieces into roughly  1/4 inch strips...its a slow process!

Making rugs is a great way to use up "ugly" fabric and make it look really pretty.

I have always wanted to learn how to do LOCKER HOOKING - looks similar to rug hooking, but you use long, continuous strips instead of thousands of shorter ones.

definitely decided to not add a pieced border, going to do just a narrow black one.  And I pieced some scrap fleece together for I spy backs.  And finished my taxes, worked on my resume.  bleck

did one of those a while back....with some fat quarters we got for one of the Left Right games...it was done on rug canvas...which is totally not like this hand woven fabric at all - where I have to 'make a  big enough hole' by wiggling the hook around ...

you can use longer strips with the rug hooking method I am doing,..I just don;t have very many longer pieces of wool!

you were a busy bee this weekend!

Me..I got some of the grocery shopping done....first went by Costco...the line  to get in was out the door, along the whole length of the warehouse and curved around some more...lawdsamighty...I would not wait in that line  outside in the heat we are having out here....a few folks had umbrellas for shade... the line at Smart&Final was not obvious from the outside...the line to buy stuff was at least 50 deep...and it wasn't moving very fast....at least it was inside in the A/C but holeycrimoly.... and no social distancing in either of those lines!!

Got food at Ralph's....there the wait lines for check out were 5 in front of me...so  it did not take too long (long enough though!) and they had enough social distancing markers on the floor...the prices are higher though...those other two are volume discounters...Ralph's is just an ordinary grocery store. 

Oh and we efiled our taxes...that was a huge accomplishment for us....it only took one day this time - normally we agonize over them for at least a week...
