    Default WiP April 12 - 18, 2019

    Crazy work is crazy, sorry for the delay.

    I am SO looking forward to retirement in a couple of years - just saying.

    Not much quilting this week, just plugging away on a couple of hand work things. If I'd just settle at the machine, I know I would make progress, but The Garden is calling my name. It's that time of year. And the upcoming week is Holy Week, so lots going on at church.

    How are things in your world?

    Things are great, you will love being retired.
    I have been spending a little time in my sewing room, working on a 30's carpenter star made from a zillion 2 1/2" hst. I also just got a feather border stencil and did my best feathers ever. I am going to get a few more of those stencils, that is so much easier for me than attempting ruler work on my sit down quilter.
    Sewing has taken a step back due to spring chores around here and one of the potties decided to self destruct yesterday so a Lowe's trip is in order today. I always enjoy a trip to Lowe's.

    Claire, where did you get your feather stencil? I would love to get some and try really concentrating on getting better. Do you use the pounce to mark or do you trace mark with a chalk pencil type marker?

    I got the first two quilts hung for decoration (lots of storage behind the quilts.) The sheer curtains are up for at least an illusion of some privacy, and everything is bolted to the walls. Yes that is my personal fabric stash. Please see my by line below my name. I love my fabric. I need my fabric. I will be hanging another quilt that will cover all my stash so it is less distracting. I have to add new hanging sleeves on two quilts I selected to go there. They will be switched out seasonally. There is room to add a fourth quilt on the wall by the door. And there is room for my cutting table which I haven't put up yet.

    Well worth the work.
    Stash Treasure Acquisitions Beyond Life Expectancy. My stash keeps me STABLE, oh yeah.... and dark chocolate.

    Denise, your stash wall is a work of art in itself. So pretty to look at.

    Claire, thanks for that link. Denise your room is beautiful, and your stash wall is beautiful. I don't know that I'd want to hide it.

    I want to order more and more but am going to wait until I really need one since the wish list price can add up quickly.
    Here is the border I did with my first stencil. I was pleased at how easily it stitched and how even my stitches turned out without a stitch regulator. Click image for larger version.

    That's beautiful, Claire. I hope I can do that on my Tiara with the help of a stencil. Which chalk do you use??? The iron off or the brush/wash off? I'm thinking of the iron off
