I hate it when books say attach yo-yos together and that's it. Kind of like quilt as desired, right?
So go visit Sew and Tell. There are more talented and crafty people than me out there.
I also made some progress on my cross stitch goals for the year- Cirque des Cercles.
The single color is relaxing. No more new stitching projects until I finish this. I have finished a lot more of it than I thought I would considering I was sick. The Ink Circle Stitchers are working on a lot of tempting projects.
I just finished this coin quilt top with a Moda jelly roll called Spring Magic.
These are my Nancy's Quilt Shop block of the months that were cut but never sewn.
I finally bought a Bernina after spending a year without a sewing machine. Now I have no excuse to finish. The triangles and their points are killing me. The Marti Mitchell templates help line everything up, but the ironing is the hardest part. There should be books on just pressing! How do you press these things where 6 corners meet at really weird angles?
These are only a few of my yearly goals as blogged here. I think I am on track to remove a lot of those undone crafty things that make me sigh. It's been a busy two weeks.
Do the threads on the orange block bother you as much as they bother me? I also noticed I missed a yo-yo. Errr. Ok I was in a hurry this morning. :)
