Yes... it's the project I was working on at Retreat... still stymied on how to proceed with affixing the trunk of the tree... once I figure that out, it shouldn't take long to finish.
Might have to do some experiments to see what will work
What I need most is more room!
Your updated sewing room looks grand.
Cats are so funny about changes.
Love the raffle quilt.
The end result looks great!
Did you cut your own kit? I love your colors!
Did you cut your own kit
yes and no. We collected donations of 2.5" strips of batiks from the guild members. Then we cut as we went on Saturday. But I think I will precut before the next one just to save some time at the cutting table. We were sewing oversized white triangles on, and that took a lot of time trimming. If I precut the strips before hand, that will help keep things moving. The sewing skills/accuracy in a group really vary a lot.
The inaccuracies are always the way with group sewing!
DD#3 and her Golden Retriever have been with us for a while, prior to her May 20th wedding. The Golden Retriever has a stuffed rabbit as a toy. She had chewed a hole in the bottom of one of the rabbit's feet. My daughter (who KNOWS that I have sewn all of *her* life) asked if I had fabric to repair the hole. ::bonk head on wall::
Yes, dear, I have fabric to repair the hole.
However, I can't just *repair* the hole. I need to do a Good Job. So, I made a flower unit from 1/4" hexies. QUARTER INCH HEXIES. Good gosh, 1/4" hexies are **small**! But, the rabbit has a cute little EPP flower on the sole of its foot.
This photo is a picture of the damage with preliminary repair work: I stuffed the hole with more fiber fill, inserted a piece of muslin under the tear and whip stitched the torn fabric to the muslin.
This photo shows the flower unit made of 1/4" hexies covering up the basic repair.
Ah, the things we do for a Grand-dog.
Excellent work, Ms Shelley, excellent work.
If Grand-dog starts to chew on this area again, I recommend the teeniest, tiniest micro touch of hot pepper sauce on the center of the blossom.
