Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a great day. My day has whizzed by like a whirlwind. I seemed to jump from one job to the next without drawing breath. I did so many household chores that I managed to tick off most of my To-Do List. I won’t bore you with that long list except to mention that I spent an hour in the garden and the weather was so nice that I really didn’t want to go back inside!
I didn’t get much sewing done today but I did do a wee bit over the weekend. So let’s start by showing you the current UFO I’m working on. This is the autumn block of the Four Season Button club Whimsy …..
And these are the beautiful buttons I will add once the hand quilting is done …..
Here is a photo showing the hand quilting progress so far …..
I have really enjoyed this simple circular quilting. Years ago I decided that less is more. This simple quilting may be less but I happen to think that this circular stitching is stunning. And I can already see that I will be using this circle design over and over because it so easy to mark and stitch. Would you consider doing some circular hand quilting???
It’s been a really great day in my little world. I got a lot more accomplished today than I thought I would and it’s only the first day of the new month. I feel I deserve a lovely quiet evening working on something I really enjoy working on. The sunshine spurred me on to get loads done and a good thing too as the rest of my week is filled with plenty of outings that will hopefully turn into adventures.
So for this evening, this very happy and ambitious quilt maker will be doing some more hand quilting. I hope you all have a super cosy evening doing something you truly love. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching ♥ ♥
