This group of circles from the Quilty 365 project has been on the design wall since May---before I went into the hospital. After coming home I played with the arrangement and added the larger circles for fun. All the circles are birds, blooms, or winged things :) Wanda from Exuberant Color sent me the Charlie Harper fabrics that feature cardinals. So of course I had to use them. I also included other gifted fabric and circles from friends/bloggers around the world. The top 3 rows are sewn together. Not perfect, but at least started.
I took some good advise and moved on to some string piecing. Edges from my bucket of selvages were stitch to batting and turned into a couple of mug rugs.
I counted this project as my OT for the day :)
Yesterday I worked on a couple of wonky blocks, but forgot to take photos.
I got sidetracked on hemming black fabric. Sir Old Man brought home unused fabric from the woodworkers guild-----it had been bought as drapes for their auditorium. Only they did not get to use it as it was not fire retardant. So why do I need black fabric? As a backdrop for a display of watercolor wall hangings. Earlier this spring I was asked to do a feature display of my water color quilts for our guild quilt show in October. Then the health issues happened and I was going to back out. Sir Old Man would not hear of it and will do the set up for me. Thus the black fabric for the smaller pieces. I hope to get them arranged and pinned to the fabric, so it can just simply be hung at the show. At least that is my plan.
Now for some quiet therapy time in the sewing room....happy stitching.
