What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

Amazon has some other pretty cute llama kits besides that one, but some are a bit more expensive.  I just saw that one in an e-mail newsletter, and then went to Amazon and searched on llama latch hook.  They are so cute that I ALMOST want to do one myself.  haha

Hi Ami & everyone.  Happy to hear you're getting so much done.  I can't wait to see the quilting on your bargello. 

I finally got a new computer, and just about have it all set up, so now I can start posting again.  It's so maddening - I had just gotten my previous computer for Christmas.  I couldn't believe it had died already.  It was an HP, and the geeks told me that the way they make HPs now, the hard drive can't be accessed for repair, so I had to buy another new computer.  HPs used to be good computers but not so much any more.

I'll try to post pictures of what I've been working on.  Hopefully I can figure out how to do that since I took the pictures with my iPhone.  I've been mainly working on making some wool quilts and doing a little bit of English Paper Piecing. 

Hi Linda glad you got your computer figured out. I can't post photos on the forum from my phone so I don't even try anymore. I do post all my quilt photos on Instagram under my name if you want to see what I am working on.

I'll run over to Instagram and check it out.

Here goes, I'm going to try and post some pictures.  You all will probably get sick of so many posts in a row from me - but thought I'd show you what I've been working on.

These two pictures are of EPP projects I just completed.  The first one is a candle mat; the second one is a Halloween table mat that I did with Kathi Shunn (it makes me smile every time I look at it).  I still need to add a backing to it.  There's lots of fussy cutting and I worked with a number of shapes on this one.  It's the most challenging one I've made so far.  Next I'm working on Tula Nova a pattern by Tula Pink.  I'm not too far along on that one yet.

At the quilting group I belong to I lead a Wool Group.  These are the projects I'm working on for that group.

The first one is "Little Wooly Baskets" - it was a free BOM I participated in on the internet.  I've completed 12 blocks and now need to design and sew a larger middle block to complete the layout I'm envisioning.  So far I've sent out the patterns for first 3 blocks for the ladies to work on - one a month.  I'll post a picture of 3 of the blocks so you can get an idea of this cute little wool project. 

The next pictures are of the other project I'm working on for the Wool Group.  We'll be doing the project together next year so I'm working on the samples now.  These are the 3 block I've finished so far.  It is a Block of the Week posted on Facebook by Farmhouse Friends called "Crazy for Fall".  I think it still may be available for free if anyone is interested.

I needed some block carriers to carry all of these blocks in so I made 2 for me and one for a friend.  The open one is the same fabric as the top one (it's the one I gave to my friend).

Thanks Shelley.  I don't have as much time to work at quilting these days so I had to think about what I really wanted to spend that precious time on.  I decided on "slow stitching" (heaven knows I have way more quilts than I'll ever be able to get all quilted and bound), so handwork and things that take more time to complete was my answer.  I decided I wanted to do applique, do hand embroidery, work with wool, do EPP, and do longarm quilting (I don't do too much piecing these days).  So every Wednesday (because I don't have Kingsley that day) I devote to one of these things.  I volunteered to lead a wool group, a handwork group, and a longarm group for the quilting club I'm in.  That way I can not only focus my attention but also get encouragement from others who have those same interests.

I took the most wonderful session of longarm classes during the COVID shutdown by Susan Smith.  She not only taught that but also has many free YouTube videos.  Every other Monday morning she quilts and does a live unscripted video while she's quilting.  I think you'd really enjoy checking some of of her videos out. 

I really like the EPP project you have in process.  It's already stunning.
