While waiting for the border fabric, I went back to the embroidery on my wall hanging. Only a couple more berries to satin stitch, then I need to decide if I'm going to do any more embellishing, perhaps on the butterflies. I'm also thinking about an interesting edge treatment. I think I will do curved corners, maybe even a shaped edge on the sides, kind of like a plaque. It's small so I can get fancy.
We're on the return leg of our road trip, heading back home.
In anticipation of this road trip, I decided to "save" stitching the columns of Inner Cube for that time. I had stacked all the piece parts for each column in the correct order then put each column on its own ziploc bag.
Although I do have hours as a passenger, I'm not working on it *all the time*. But I have been able to complete 2 columns.
Here is the 2nd column. It's hanging on the bathroom door in our trailer ... the only vertical spot we have that I can stand far enough away from to get the entire piece!
looking great - you've made great progress. I'm jealous - I cannot decide on my next handwork project....
Beautiful!!! Your roadwork kits are always so amazing.
I had quite a few handwork projects like that myself but sadly the all got finished and this last summer I have done trips with nothing to work on. Well we are flying to southern California on Thursday and I am happy to say I will have two handwork projects to work on!!!
Dee, you door plaque is gorgeous. No matter what you do for finishing will only add to it.
I wish there was a hand project fairy that would do the prep work, than I would do a lot more.
that's an idea! Though I guess that's what those precut fusible kits are, assuming you just wanted to do blanket stitch and not needle turn.
hand project fairy
That is what I need, someone to prep my handwork.
I am happy to say I machine sewed binding to my mini quilt which I can now hand turn.
I also marked a stencil pattern to my little hand quilting block that will be a pillow.....my oldest UFO, partially handquilted and I stopped like 1985....very well aged so gonna finish it as a pillow because I still like it.
I will be taking these two small projects on my long weekend trip and hope to either finish or make a lot of progress.
Wow - that is beautiful Dee!
Stunning!!! I know how much work went into it since I'm working on an EPP project too. It's slow going here. You're making wonderful progress on yours.
Both tops are stunning! Good job. I love red, white and blue scrappy quilts, but they aren't always easy to do. Not all blues play together well and the same thing for reds. I don't like mixing fire engine red with crimson red, if that makes any sense.
