and I am a flitter-er.
That's right, I flit from one project to another and I LIKE IT!!! I was discussing this by email the other day with Darlene and I realized, again, that I do like it. Yet, it leaves me without those wonderful..."see what I finished" pictures every few weeks. But eventually I will have a TON of "see ALL the things" I finished. Eventually.
Sorry that it's been a week since I posted. I have been taking it slower, but I really didn't intend to be gone for so long between visits. So without further adieu...these are the things I've been flitting between all week.
Got the next installment for Sweet Land of Liberty completed and sew together. I showed you different pieces of this section, but finally got them all assembled and embroidery done last night. I'm loving how this one is turning out and I'm rounding the end on this one, I think. There are top borders to be done and a few more blocks, but maybe 4 months left??? Seems like less, but it's getting close. I have another block ready to assemble tonight too. I also signed up for the last of Cheri's sampler quilts and last weekend I got the FIRST package for the ABC Quilt Sampler. I had the pattern, but I really like doing these as BOM's so I ordered it from Buggy Barn. I'm NOT starting it for a few months probably, but it was fun to go through all the pieces. I need to finish some others first!!
My arms are getting better and better, very slowly, but I am still working on my Four Seasons BOM with Darlene, Carol, Sharon and I'm sure others. Beth are you doing this one too?
This work is the one thing that still kills me with pain, so I go very slowly. To the left is the bird for Summer without his piecing done. I somehow missed the house block, which comes first but eh..not at all tragic which order they are done in.
Got the Spring section completely done and all stitched up! As normal, you can click on any of the pictures and get a much larger view.
I'm also just about finished with a quilt top that I was compelled to get done. You know the feeling right?
One of the last things to do is cut what seemed like millions of these triangles. Now to put them all together...but no peeks.
This one I want to just spring on you like Tracey does...POW! See what I finished while you weren't looking! She just did it again and you really should go look. She has also reminded me that I have a very similar box of very similar Dresden's that need exactly the same treatment...including all the fudging into place in order to lay flat and pretty.
SO that's the last week of working and toiling in my sewing room. Come back soon to see some more progress.
