Also took a Fabric Roadtrip with 5 friends on the 8th.

Sounds like a really fun trip. 

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
