This and That

So what am I up to lately?
I’ve been doing a lot of chain stitching.
A crazy amount of trimming and pressing.
I almost have this top completed. I just need borders the I can quilt it and bind it. It is a lot of matching seams and trimming and pressing and matching. But it is so lovely.

I went to the DC Modern Quilt Guild Meeting which was great fun. I was able to give away a ton of 60 weight three ply thread from Presencia. I love that stuff for quilting. It is very strong and super thin. LOVE!
I worked in some time to make a little neck roll for my favorite boys. This one adores it and carries it with him everywhere he goes.

I snuck in a little time for a birthday party for my favorite 7 year old complete with Superhero Masks.

Then my machine got sick with the clickety-clack. I am so sad. I admit I cried a little. (Ahem, a lot). The dealer where I purchased it closed and the next one isn’t very close. I will be sans machine for almost two weeks. Boo hoo.

But all is not lost. I picked up a lovely 30 reproduction bundle and am working with my fingers.

And even though it is so dreary out, I discovered some of my bulbs have come to see me!
