Yesterday I shared with you that I’m totally overwhelmed by extra projects, and today I’m going to show you what they are. :)
First of all we have the quilt that I’ve been making forever. I was planning on backing it with plain navy fabric, but I didn’t have enough so I patched together these rows and just threw it together quickly. It’s fine. I think I would have preferred the plain, but oh well. Next steps here are pressing and basting the layers together with the batting. I think I am going to machine quilt the long lines and then hand quilt around each triangle. However, for the moment I’m taking a step back from the quilt to focus on other things.
Like Liam’s stocking! Over the weekend I finished the top including the personalization, which is the most annoying part to do but is also the most special. I am finding that I really love felt needlepoint, and I’d like to make some ornaments and possibly an advent calendar during the fall, so I’m going to try and finish this stocking during the summer.
This is a table runner I’m making for our dresser, tutorial found here. It’s so simple and cute. I want to get this done pretty quickly so I can move on and share some updated photos of that part of our room with you.
Lastly, I was gifted a bunch of flowers: canna lilies, irises, and amaryllis. I’m in the process of clearing out a bed for them, but I think I may have to pot them in the meantime. I’m excited about the prospect of growing flowers but I’m afraid I will kill them!
What are you working on these days?
