A Wee Bit of This and thenThat—-Sunday, September 8, 2019

When the day finally darkens down to a point I can no longer work outside

I’ve been working on an embroidery kit (which I’ve had for years and years)

I am now at the stage whereby I have started hand-quilting each square.  I have never quilted a day in my life.  But, Kate from Tall Tales from Chiconia is an outstanding mentor; so I’m now giving it a go.

The kit is not large 14 squares.  Once I get them hand-quilted, then I have to put them together…that is going to be the rub. But, I’m not going to worry about it until I get to that next step.  The quilt will be for my personal use, so if it isn’t perfect I don’t have to obsess about it.

Muddling onward I go. 🙂

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

Linda

  2. I like your pattern! I did a lot of embroidery until my twins were born (my 2nd & 3rd children). I haven’t had time sense. Now that they are grown, my interests have shifted. I might still return to it in the future. Your work is good! The pictures show the perfect thread tension and adherence to the pattern. You’ll have a lovely quilt!
