I have been sewing, sewing ,sewing. I really gave myself a challenge. # 11 is a wonderful Christmas folkart wallhanging that is pieced and hand applique. I have completed 9 of 12 blocks. Will layout block number 10 tonight. Not sure what I did to my back, but somehow my posture while I am sewing has not been very good and result is I am walking bent in half. Tylenol is helping. At least I am able to stand upright today. For that I am very thankful. I try to set a goal to reach each day and the back thingy slowed me down a bit. Due to an impending nasty weather forecast, my family has cancelled their trip. I’m sorry for that but grateful that I will be free to try and get # 11 finished on time. I usually applique using the needle turn technique. This time I have used the starch and freezer paper technique. I believe it is faster and am please with the results. But then, these are large pieces, if they were small intricate pieces I believe I would need more practice with this technique to get the quality of work I am used to producing with my needle turn. And as always, I have assistance whether desired or not. This is Tink, short for Tinkerbell.
These are what I have completed.
See you next time.
